Shouldn't it now be 'Mining man's legs of colour'?

Michael NB Black Leg Mining Man is by Jock Purdon RIP, I'd guess from his Pitricide LP and is not the same song as Black Leg Miner.
The text is on the Whisky Priests page as noted by 999 above.

I too reckon that the song you want is not the familiar Blackleg Miner but instead the Jock Purdon composition titled Blackleg Mining Man, which, as Guest 999 says, can be accessed via the storming Whisky Priests performance in the link mentioned above.

BLACKLEG MINING MAN
(Jock Purdon)

Who is that blackleg mining man? (x2)
He's the one who helps the boss
Nail his brothers to the cross;
Who is that blackleg mining man?

Where was that blackleg mining man? (x2)
He was nowhere to be seen
When they killed young Jones and Green;
Where was that blackleg mining man?

He was that blackleg mining man (x2)
He was deep down in the mine,
Gone through the picket line;
He was that blackleg mining man.

Why does that blackleg mining man (x2)
Dig the black black coal
And put his marrers on the dole?
Why does that blackleg mining man?

Someday that blackleg mining man (x2)
Will rue what he has done
When there's no work for his son;
Someday that blackleg mining man.

One day that blackleg mining man (x2)
Will realise he's sold his soul
For a tub of blackleg coal;
One day that blackleg mining man.>

He'll see that blackleg mining man (x2)
When he looks into his glass –
A traitor to his class;
He'll see that blackleg mining man.

Who is that blackleg mining man? (x2)
He's the one who helps the boss
Nail his brothers to the cross;
He is that blackleg mining man.

To quote from what is likely the worst TV show in history, "I love it when a plan comes together."

You are welcome, and thank you too.
