lyrics

We may shout words that are abuse,
You think we're silly and what's the use?
And if the time comes then what would you do?
Be on the picket line or join the dole queue?

It's a striking miner's lament,
It's a striking miner's lament.

Listen to me you boys in blue,
You all try to stop me, that's what you do.
I'm only trying to talk but you get rough,
And if you get hurt well that's just tough.

It's a striking miner's lament,
It's a striking miner's lament.

We're fighting for
Our job,
Something we may
May not have,
So get in the picket line
You bloody scab,
So get in the picket line
You bloody scab!

Striking miner's lament,
It's a striking miner's lament...
