lyrics

Granddad can you hear me
As you take your well-earned rest?
Can you spare a moment
As we face our greatest test?
Granddad we are troubled
And our world is torn apart,
Granddad can I speak to you from deep inside my heart?

Union's still fighting
So stay strong and true.
Union's still fighting
So what do we do?

Government is claiming that the miners have no place
To work and earn a living in this modern human race
They say that pits don't make profits
And some of them must close
Work is hard to come by
So this is what we chose.

Granddad we have sat and watched
As our families struggle by
And now we stand and fight
And give our battle cry
Jobs for all our brothers
Yes jobs for everyone
Days of knuckling under have passed by and gone.

Granddad can you hear me
As tears fall down my face,
We have to win this fight
To save the mining race
As others did before us
All me strong and true,
We'll do it for you granddad,
For the union and for you.
