Dwight Yoakam - "Miner's Prayer"

C When that sun comes up each morning and I walk
G7 down into that cold dark C mine
I say a prayer to my dear saviour, please let me
G7 see the sunshine one more C time


When oh F when will it be C over, when F will I lay these burdens G down
and when I C die dear lord in heaven please take my G7 soul from 'neath
this cold dark C ground.

I still pine for my dear brother and I still
G7 hear my dear old mother C cry
late one night they came and told her he lost his
G7 life down in the Van Leer mines
