The Dream Of The Miner's Child Lyrics

A miner was leaving his home for his work
When he heard his little child scream
He went to the side of the little girl's bed
She said, "Daddy, I've had such a dream"
Oh, daddy, don't go to the mines today
For dreams have so often come true
My daddy, my daddy, please, don't go away
For I never could live without you
Then smiling and stroking the little girl's face
He was turning away from her side
Then she threw her small arms around her daddy's neck
She gave him a kiss and then cried
I dreamed that the mines were all flaming with fire
And the men all fought for their lives
Just then the scene changed then the mouth of the mines
Was covered with sweethearts and wives
Oh, daddy, don't go to the mines today
For dreams have so often come true
My daddy, my daddy, please, don't go away
For I never could live without you
Go down to the village and tell all your friends
That as sure as the bright stars do shine
There is something that's going to happen today
Please, daddy, don't go to the mines
Oh, daddy, don't go to the mines today
For dreams have so often come true
My daddy, my daddy, please, don't go away
For I never could live without you
