Colliery Gate

  • (Trad / Ian McCalman)

    Well I live down the road from the colliery gate
    And the siren of the shift is a sound I hate
    Don't be sick and don't be late
    There is no other work in the village

    When the dust and the grime make a man retire
    Then his son comes up for the chance of fire
    Working in the dark just to feed your fire
    There is no other work in the village

    Though Bilston is better than most they say
    I will do everything to keep my son away
    Jobs like that don't come each day
    There is no other work in the village

    As sung by The McCalmans
