Stompin' Tom Connors – Muckin' Slushers lyrics

Come on you muckin' slushers
You jack leg, driller and blasters
The price of Uranium is up and there's money to make

Come on ya big rock boulders
Who answer to the name of miner
This old boom town is still around
On the shores of Elliot Lake

Time cards in and out, up and down cages
Gonna make Heaven out of Hell, earn wages
Come on quirky pay me now
I got eighteen holes I'm goin' pow, pow, pow
And there ain't no music finer
She's a damn good song for a miner, a damn good song for a miner

When it's daylight on the town sight and a midnight a way down under
I can hear the shift boss say "shes a muckin' out well"
With hard hats, boots and oilers
Were off to scale the stoke boys
Goodbye town we're a goin' down
To the belly of a man made hell

Time cards in and out, up and down cages
Gonna make Heaven out of Hell, earn wages
Come on quirky pay me now
I got eighteen holes I'm goin' pow, pow, pow
And there ain't no music finer
She's a damn good song for a miner, a damn good song for a miner

In the afternoon we'll cage up to the surface and home to supper
But we'll all meet at the Algoden later tonight
Where the wine and the beer and the singin'
Kinda gets a good miner swingin'
And we'll dance around this whole damn town till the sun comes shinin' bright

Time cards in and out, up and down cages
Gonna make Heaven out of Hell, earn wages
Come on quirky pay me now
I got eighteen holes I'm goin' pow, pow, pow
And there ain't no music finer
She's a damn good song for a miner, a damn good song for a miner

Come on you muckin' slushers
You jack leg, drillers and blasters
The price of Uranium is up and there's money to make

Come on you big rock boulders
Who answer to the name of miner
This old boom town it still around on the shores of Elliot Lake

Time cards in and out, up and down cages
Gonna make Heaven out of Hell, earn wages
Come on quirky pay me now
I got eighteen holes I'm goin' pow, pow, pow
And there ain't no music finer
She's a damn good song for a miner, a damn good song for a miner

One hell of a song for a miner!
