I wrote this song lots of years ago - it is dedicated to all those people who suffered in coal mines during the Industrial Revolution.
Here are the lyrics:

1. I ain't gonna work in this coalmine no more
I said, I ain't gonna work in this-here coalmine no more
I'm working all my fingers simply down to the bone
Here at this dark coal-face, always alone

There's coal dust in my lungs
And coal dust in my brain
"Why, that's all part of a revolution
Called Industrial", they claim.

2. My wife ain't gonna work in this coalmine no more
I said, my wife ain't gonna work in this-here coalmine no more
She's going down to the mine shaft all day
She's harnessed like a horse, so why should she expect more pay?!

There's coal dust in her lungs
And coal dust in her brain
"Why, that's all part of a revolution
Called Industrial", they claim.

3. My kids ain't gonna work in this coalmine no more
I said, my kids ain't gonna work in this-here coalmine no more
They're lowered into Hell before the sun begins to rise
Crawlin' out like rats they see the moon up in the sky.

There's coal dust in their lungs
And coal dust in their brain
"Why, that's all part of a revolution
Called Industrial", they claim.

The song was recorded in the Saguaro & Tumbleweed Studios at the Home of the Wadel on this very planet, but in another century.
By the way, this is simple homerecording stuff - therefore, excuse the somewhat monotonous drum machine...
