Fire In The Mine

	  		
verse 1 

D  
There was a grief among the people,  

in that northern Timmons town  
     A                         G              D 
When somebody yelled fire, the mine is burnin down 
D 
Then rushing to the surface came those McIntyre men 
          A                               G             D 
Then they readied and prepared to let the fire fighters in 

tabchorus
D G A D There's a fire way down in the mine

verse 2 D It was February second in the year of sixty five A G D A miner life was taken by the carbon monoxide D The gas had been created , way down a mile or so A G D In the McIntyre hell fire six Thousand feet below
tabchorus
D G A D There's a fire, way down in the mine

verse 3 D The call went through the northland For men to fight the flame A G D From Sudbury to Noranda and from everywhere they came D With oxygen and gas masks, they worked for a month of days A G D In a 150 degrees of heat, they faught that gassy blaze
tabchorus
D G A D There's a fire way down in the mine

verse 4 D The deadly gas kept rising, in the McIntyre high A Til it spread through the walls and the fire doors G D To the Hollinger mine nearby D For nearly a thousand miners now, ther was no work below A G D The word came from the office, boys we have to let you go
tabchorus
D G A D There's a fire way down in the mine
tab
Verse 5 D The smiles of hope now faded, many faces wore a frown A G D Must we see our children hungry , must have leave the town D Will they have to close the mine up Bringing trouble strife and woe A G D Or will they beat the gassy hellfire six thousand feet below
tabchorus
D G A D There's a fire way down in the mine
tab
Verse 6 D Then at last it was all over, they'd sealed the fire in A As it died they called the miners, G D Slowly back to work again D Some may say that it was nothing, and the world may pass it by A G D But the people up in Timmins, will always hear that cry D G A D There's a fire way down in the hole D G A D There's a fire way down in the hole D G A D There's a fire way down in the hole D G A D There's a fire way down in the hole
