I heard his whistling fading away like sleep into dreams
instead of ‘I Love You’ he’d say ‘You know what I mean’
I’d watch the sun he’d rarely see put red on the cheeks of a child
disappear like his white skin with eyes shining wild

chorus:
I’m in love with a miner boy
I’m in love with a miner boy
I’m in love with a miner boy
I’m in love with a miner boy

Everyday that lonesome whistle blows
everyday this helpless feeling grows

I do dead work all day long and on Sunday bow my head
I know the Lord’s to busy for me so I pray for the coal instead
Breaker roar might wake up some but I sleep with eyes on the door
and love will only lay me down when I hear boots on the floor

(chorus)
