      About "Miner's Prayer"

      Lyrics for Dwight Yoakam - "Miner's Prayer"

      When the whistle blows each morning
      And I walk down in that cold, dark mine
      I say a prayer to my dear Saviour
      Please let me see the sunshine one more time

      When oh when will it be over
      When will I lay these burdens down
      And when I die, dear Lord, in heaven
      Please take my soul from 'neath that cold, dark ground

      I still grieve for my poor brother
      And I still hear my dear old mother cry
      When late that night they came and told her
      He'd lost his life down in the Big Shoal Mine

      When oh when will it be over
      When will I lay these burdens down
      And when I die, dear Lord, in heaven
      Please take my soul from 'neath that cold, dark ground

      I have no shame, I feel no sorrow
      If on this earth not much I own
      I have the love of my sweet children
      An old plow mule, a shovel and a hoe

      When oh when will it be over
      When will I lay these burdens down
      And when I die, dear Lord, in heaven
      Please take my soul from 'neath that cold, dark ground

      Yeah when I die, dear Lord, in heaven
      Please take my soul from 'neath that cold, dark ground
