THE HAND OF MAN

West Virginia mountain home
Seven generations born
Men all worked to mine the coal
Spent our lives down in that hole
Company found a cheaper way
Blast the mountaintops away
Killing everything around
To get that coal out of the ground

'Twas the hand of man brought a mountain down
Oh, the hand of man brought a mountain down

White Star Holler was my home
Shared the crops that we had grown
Shared the water from our well
Shared the life we loved so well
Coal men brought the mountain down
Leaked their poison underground
Mother, neighbor, friend, and son
Cancer took them every one

'Twas the hand of man brought a mountain down
Oh, the hand of man brought a mountain down

They say our nation needs our coal
And that is worth our lives and homes
We have no wealth, we have no voice
We have no power and no choice

'Twas the hand of man brought a mountain down
Oh, the hand of man brought a mountain down
'Twas the hand of man brought a mountain down
Oh, the hand of man brought a mountain down
