A miner was leaving his home for his work
When he heard his little child scream
He went to the side of the little child's bed
She said, "Daddy, I've had such a dream"
"Oh daddy, don't go to the mines today
For dreams have so often come true
Oh daddy, oh daddy, please don't go away
For I never could live without you"
"I dreamed that the mines were all flaming with fire
And the miners all fought for their lives
Just then the scene changed and the mouth of the mine
Was covered with sweethearts and wives"
"Go down to the village and tell all your friends
That as sure as the bright sun does shine
There's something a-going to happen there today
Oh daddy, don't go to the mine"
