Beaconsfield Miners

Written By: Peter Klein

Beaconsfield miners

(Am) Beaconsfield miners sitting in a hole,
(G) Telling stories cause there’s nowhere else to go,
(Am) Sitting in the dark putting on a show,
(G) We’re Beaconsfield (D) miners in a (Am) hole.

(Am) My legs are pinned, Brant flick on the lighter,
(G) Larry’s gone for help; he has the courage of fighter.
(Am) Not dieing here, for our families they are brighter,
(G) We’re Beaconsfield (Em) miners in a (Am) hole, (Instrumental Am/G/Am/G/Em/Am)

We made a pact; we’re here for each other,
For the love of family we had to be like brothers.
If I could change the past, I’d spend it with my lover,
(G) We’re Beaconsfield (D) miners in a (Am) hole.

Dogs Ute and hunting and Holden they are true,
Ford, sailing, chalk and cheese how can I talk to you.
Tongue kiss to settle down, our family’s strength is true,
(G) We’re Beaconsfield (D) miners in a (Am) hole. (Instrumental)

Letters on my overalls and my ciggy pack,
Firing the rescue blasts there is no going back.
With Gill and Flanigan keeping the men on track,
(G) We’re Beaconsfield (D) miners in a (Am) hole.

Weight of the world is sitting on our shoulder,
Talking with me mate will we get much older?
The damp and cramps and the blasting's getting bolder,
(G) We’re Beaconsfield (D) miners in a (Am) hole. (Instrumental)

Spotlights and Satellites, the world holds its breath,
Shook hands through a hole, the great escape from death.
Clock of our tags to start our life afresh,
(G) We’re Beaconsfield (D) miners in a (Am) hole.

Good-bye to Larry, and good-bye Richard too,
Never forget we owe a lot to you.
Solid as a rock, we know just what to do,
(G) We’re Beaconsfield (D) people (Am) through and through. (Instrumental)

We were Beaconsfield miners sitting in a hole,
Telling our story everywhere we go,
Sitting in the spotlight putting on a show,
(G) We were Beaconsfield (Em) miner’s in a (Am) hole. We were Beaconsfield Miner's in a hole
We were Beaconsfield Miner's in a hole.
(Instrumental) end
