Oh we’re back in the valley
Oh we’re back in the valley
Oh we’re back in the valley
and it all comes round again

That coal dust clings to me wherever I make my way
and like the star of Bethlehem it leads me back today
fresh air might make me homesick for what I’ve left behind
but I got no time for dreaming if I did I’d lose my mind


Some seek shelter from the storm some laugh in the teeth of the gale
and some just work right through it everyday without fail
some just walk on the backs of men who’ve fallen down
it’s hard to trust the man who makes his living above the ground


Maybe down in the darkness
the good Lord just can’t see
so I just gotta tell him
that His coal is killing me
