Goin' to the Mine
Last updated: 22.04.17

Goin' to the Mine, written by Johnny Handle, is another doleful mining song whereby the narrator whenever he is the way to his underground workplace looks forward to Sunday, a day when he will not be going down the mine.
Into the smoky mornin' I'm trudgin' down the line.
Hoe I long for Sunday when I'm goin' to the mine.
Into the smoky mornin' I'm trudgin' down the line.
One day I'll be flying too from goin' to the mine.
This song may be found in the Tyneside Maritime Chorus songbook
