About: The Price Of Coal - Paul Child


Cian Wood After Aberfan ALL the pits were levelled off and it only took the lives of roughly 130 children to do it
loverly song allways in my heart 
mining communities were the salt of the earth -they looked after each other- not like these days- gone forever-a whole way of life has gone-so so sad
reminds me so much o f my grandfather, he used to always have this song in the car! rest in peace gramp! i love you!<3
remembering Aberfan 45 years on.we will never forget
This song is as a mark of respect to all who died in mining accidents.45 years ago today,Aberfan happened.

"Working Man / The Price Of Coal" has now been released on iTunes with all proceeds going to the families of the Gleision Miners' Appeal Fund. Just search iTunes for 'The Price Of Coal'
A Welshman stood at the golden gate, his head was bent and low. He meekly asked the man of fate, The way that he should go. 'What have you done' St. Peter said 'To gain admission here?' 'I merely mined for coal' he said, 'for many and many a year.' St. Peter opened wide the gate, And softly tolled the bell. 'Come and choose your harp' he said 'You've had your share of hell.' Remembering the miners of Gleision - R.I.P. May God keep you safe
for the miners lost at Gleision Colliery,Swansea.16/9/11.R.I.P.

Still a very good song & performer. Would like to see you touring here in Canada. Paul Child & Christine Lee Jones would do well here in Canada.

Wow, great song & performance, a real tribute to miners around the world. This should be right up there with Rita MacNeil original Working Man & David Alexander version of Working Man
