People Will Always Need Coal

Album: Every Valley (2017)
  • Hey there miner
    Living life the way you want to be
    Come on now miner
    There's money, lots of money and security

    In South Wales it seems over two and a half feet thick
    There is still at least ten thousand million tons of the coal that made her famous
    Enough for another four hundred years

    Young men of Wales are finding
    The industry that employed their fathers and their grandfathers
    There's a future, a secure future, in Welsh coal today
    A secure future in Welsh coal today

    Be a miner
    It's an industry of men
    We need more men
    Be a miner
    There's more to mining than dust and dirt, much more
    Be a miner
    You'll discover the excitement of going underground
    There'll always be something new

    A secure future in Welsh coal today

    South Wales coal field will be turning out best Welsh for a few hundred years yet
    Its character is changing
    As it turns confidently to what may lie ahead

    A secure future in Welsh coal today Writer/s: J. Willgoose Esq.
