SHUT DOON THE WAGGON WORKS

The lights are going out on the edge of Ghost Town
As a coldness penetrates through curtained windows
For the colliery streets shed no warmth light or heat
There is no joy or friendship here in winter

As me and my marrers go to get ourselves a pint
All we get are looks which make us shiver
For the people have changed though the place still looks the same
But the waggons don't run here anymore

Times are hard in this world
When you get put out of work
The people up in power
Have shut down the waggon works

There are jobs up for grabs in other parts I hear
While our village has been scrapped through lack of care
They've decided to scrap jobs in the places they matter most
Though the towers still belch their smoke into the air

Times are hard in this world
When you get put out of work
The people up in power
Have shut down the waggon works

(Gary Miller)
