Thanks. I had seen the YouTube video, but can't make out all of the lyrics - and I haven't been able to find them anywhere else...

It's on Youtube. Words a bit difficult to make out. Couldn't find any with a quick google. Will try later.

The British rock group Spear of Destiny had a song on their 1985 album "World Service" titled "Harlan County". The song seems to be about the coal miners' strike in Harlan County, Kentucky in 1973 - commonly referred to as the "Brookside Strike" - that was the subject of Barbara Kopple's documentary film "Harlan County U.S.A.", which won the Academy Award in 1976.
   Does anyone know the lyrics to this song? It starts out:

Last night on my TV
I saw the men of Harlan County
