DT Lyrics:

Subject: Lyr Req: Pretoria Pit Disaster (Lancashire)
From: GUEST, Sminky

Next year will be the 100th anniversary of the Pretoria Pit Disaster (on the border of Atherton and Westhoughton, Lancashire) when 344 men and boys were killed in a huge undergound explosion. It was the highest death toll in any English mine accident.

As part of a project I am putting together, I am looking for the lyrics of any songs relating to the event (especially, though not exclusively, that by The Houghton Weavers).

Thanks in advance.
