UNDERGROUND

Copyright 2007 Russ Case & Lynn Case email:russ@showcasesongs.com

THOMAS GOES DOWN IN THE MINE EVERYDAY
AND HE HOPES AND PRAYS HE CAN KEEP IT THAT WAY
HE DOESN'T WANT TO PACK UP ALL HIS CHILDHOOD MEMORIES
NO HE LOVES THIS TOWN AND THE WAY IT'S LASTED THROUGH ALL THE UPS AND DOWNS
HE'S GOT FRIENDS AND A COUSIN THAT GO WITH HIM UNDERGROUND

HE MET ALLIE AT A DANCE AT THE MINER'S HALL
AND MARRIED HER DOWN AT THE CHURCH OF GOD
BEEN FIXIN' UP THE OLD HOME PLACE FOR SOME TIME NOW
HE'S JUST TRYIN' TO MAKE A BETTER LIFE LIKE SO MANY IN THIS TOWN
BY GETTING UP AND GOING DOWN UNDERGROUND

SOME DREAM THEIR WHOLE LIFE LONG
OF A PLACE WHERE THEY BELONG
BUT SOMEHOW THOMAS FOUND
IN THIS LITTLE MINING TOWN
A PLACE TO LIVE AND DIE
WORKING UNDERGROUND

HE'S NOT JUST A MINER DOING HIS JOB
IT'S A BROTHERHOOD WITH A SPECIAL BOND
WHERE THE ROOTS RUN DEEP AND THE LOYALTY IS HARD-TIMES STRONG
AND YEAH HE KNOWS THERE ARE SAFER JOBS HE COULD FIND IN OTHER TOWNS
BUT HE'S PROUD TO GO WHERE OTHERS WON'T UNDERGROUND

REPEAT CHORUS

THE EXPLOSION HAPPENED EARLY IN THE DAY
AND MOST MEN FOUGHT THEIR WAY OUT OF THAT GRAVE
AND THOMAS SHOULD HAVE COME OUT WITH THE REST
BUT HE WOULDN'T LEAVE HIS COUSIN THERE BY HIMSELF
AND EVERYONE GATHERED AT THE CHURCH OF GOD
CAUSE THERE'S A LOT OF LOVE IN A MINING TOWN
AND THEIR PRAYERS WENT UP BUT THEIR THOUGHTS WENT DOWN
TO THE TWO YOUNG MEN FOREVER LOST UNDERGROUND

SOME DREAM THEIR WHOLE LIFE LONG
OF A PLACE WHERE THEY BELONG
BUT SOMEHOW THOMAS FOUND
IN THAT LITTLE MINING TOWN
A PLACE TO LIVE AND DIE
WORKING UNDERGROUND
OH ?
