DT Lyrics:





Subject: KEEP YOUR HAND UPON YOUR WAGES - info?
From: Ian HP
Date: 01 Jul 99 - 06:07 PM

There is a wonderful union song called A Miners Life? Keep Your Hand Upon Your Wages? The first line is "A miner's life is like a sailor's" and the chorus goes "Union miners stand together, never heed the owner's tales, keep your hand upon your wages and your eye upon the scales." Does anyone know the proper title, author, background, words?

I heard a song well sang, the other day. The chorus included, if I heard it correctly "keep your hands on your wages and your eyes upon the sail?" probably got this wrong. Can anyone help? Do you know it Ray, if you pick up on this thread?

'Miners Lifeguard' in the USA, 'Miners Life' in the UK. Quite easily found via the search engine. The DT file contains links to several past discussions of the song and its history.

Mick Tems ('Catter) recorded it many years ago. Can't remember which album, but I do have it somewhere in my collection.
