Coal Creek TN: The "Fraterville Mine Explosion"

        It was on one Monday morning,
        On the nineteenth of May;
        Near 200 miners round us,
        Left their homes and marched away.
All 184 trapped died-5/19/1902; George Korson, Coal Dust on the Fiddle (This isn't the event of "Coal Creek March" or of "Payday." Lots of fun stuff happened in Coal Creek.)


        Shut up in the mines of Coal Creek,
        And I know that I will have to die.
        Go tell my wife and children
        That I'm prepared to die.

                "Shut up in the Mines at Coal Creek," Hedy West on Old Times & Hard
; collected by her father while in jail.
