Subject: RE: Looking for specific miner song
If you can get hold of an old Anne Byrne recording..she does it great.

There is another song I would like to find..someone told me what it was before but now I forget.

Someone worked in the mines and got hunchbacked from it and went to work in the woods, where they made fun of him for not being a great tree chopper. So one day there was a terrible fire and he grabs a shovel I think and digs a trench perhaps and saves them...it was really a powerful song. mg
