Mining Wife Blues

Mining Wife Blues

Night time is the right time to make love,
But I’m here all alone, you’re working way up north
Oh honey, oh baby you’re a thousand miles away
I need you here tonight, to take these blues away

While you’re way up there and I’m down here
The reasons for it all are no longer clear
Said you’d be gone on and off for a short time
That was five years ago and I want you to hear

These mining wife blues

It was to save for a deposit, now we’re paying off a house
Huge mortgage, flat screen, just like everybody else
A son needs a father a woman needs her man
Some how we got off track, threw away our plan

While you’re way up there and I’m down here
The reasons for it all are no longer clear
Said you’d be gone on and off for a short time
We’re making money but we’re losing time and I got

The mining wife blues

My friend Clare she’s having an affair
Says he’ll never knows what goes on when he isn’t here
And Melanie’s buying jewelry and lots of pretty things
Oh and Kathy gets stoned and Charlene just drinks

While you’re way up there and I’m down here
The reasons for it all are no longer clear
Oh honey, oh baby you’re a thousand miles away
I need you here tonight, to take these blues away

Oh honey oh baby you’re a thousand miles away
Honey oh baby you’re a thousand miles away
I need you here tonight, to take these blues away
Oh I need you here tonight, to take these blues away
