Nothing they could do but sit down there with the black coal all around them, and the water rose so quick and cold, an unlikely place to drown.

Nine in the mine, trapped down below- down, down, down in the ground
And this'll be the day I didn't kiss my wife goodbye, take care of my
Family I'm buried alive

They held their heads up high as they struggled hard to breath
And asked the Lord to open his arms for the nine souls he'd receive

Nine in the mine

They latched themselves together so in death they might be found
And prayed there for miracle some 24 stories down.

Nine in the mine
