Poor hardworking miners, their troubles are great
So often while working, they meet a sad fate
Killed by some accident, there's no one to tell
Their mining's all over, poor miner farewell

Only a miner, killed under the ground
Only a miner, but one more is gone
Only a miner, but one more is gone
Leaving his wife and three children alone

Leaving his little one out on the street
Tired and hungry with nothing to eat
Momma is jobless and papa is dead
They's coal miners' children, begging for bread

Only a miner, killed under the ground
Only a miner, but one more is gone
Only a miner, but one more is gone
Leaving his wife and four children alone

When I'm in Kentucky, so often I'll meet
Coal miners' children out on the street
What are you doing, to them I have said
We're coal miners's children, begging for bread

Only a miner, killed under the ground
Only a miner, but one more is gone
Only a miner, but one more is gone
Leaving his wife and four children alone

Their mining's all over
Coal miner farewell
