About: Life in West Virginia Coal Mines
They are one group of very good and honest hard-working people !!!
My Grandfather, & some uncles from down home in W Va worked the deep mines & also some of em also worked the strip mines too. Last I knew my Cousin Dave's son Dave is working the deep mine now. My Uncle Bill died with black lung, God Bless all of them RIP.
This song and film really moved me. I am glad that my dad did not work the mines his whole life. He was called to God's service while still in his thirties. He was my hero, my champion my whole life. God bless all the miners that gave their lives to their lives to the mines.
My Daddy worked 40 year in the mines. Never wanted me to go in, but I spent 8 years underground. Hard working men that taught a boy (18 at the time) how to stay alive, I'll never forget the lessons I was taught deep underground.!!!!
Having a grandfather, father and husband who have worked inside the coal mines, this song really touched my heart. We have lost several friends and loved ones in coal mining accidents and hope that nobody ever has to experience that ever again. Thanks Dierks for a song well sung.
Pretty good my grandpa worked those mines before and after the war
