A folk song about trapped Chilean miner Yonni Barrios, his wife and his mistress.

Yonni Barrios Gold n Copper Mine Blues

33 miners life on the line at the San Jose Gold n Copper Mine

69 days without a Sky, one trip to face my lies.

name's Yonni Barros I'm 50 years old -- I been diggin this ground so the ore can be sold

Marta my wife waits above -- so does my mistress Susana my love.

While I was trapped a half a mile deep -- they both called my name as they mourned and weeped

My wife told Susana she's not in my life -- "Barro's my husband I'm his devoted wife"

(Chorus 2 x)

A 2800 foot shaft 28 inches wide -- I'll go in the capsule and swallow my pride

From the depths of the earth to the midnight sky -- they'll soften the light to protect my eyes

As I come out to greet the crowd with the lights so bright and the cheers so loud

There Ill meet two women scorned .... I'm a man of freedom but my heart is torn
