Call Daddy From The Mines Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

A little girl woke up deep in the dark and started cryin'
The mother brought a light and held her daughter tight
She thought it was so strange to hear a little girl of nine
Cry, "Call daddy from the mine, call daddy from the mine"

Her mother wiped the tears and said, "See honey, you're only dreaming
Your dad must work today, he has to draw his pay"
She left her then but still could hear her cry time after time
"Call daddy from the mine, call daddy from the mine"

Then the countryside was shaken by a mighty rumble
And fear for miles around was the trembling of the ground
The little girl was fast asleep, yet cried out one more time
"Call daddy from the mine, call daddy from the mine"

Ten thousand tears and two weeks later deep in the smoking ground
A dying man was found had survived all those around
He'd quickly crawled to a fresh air pocket barely just in time
When he heard his own child whine, "Call daddy from the mine
Call daddy from the mine, call daddy from the mine"
