It's in the evening after dark
With his moleskin pants and dirty shirt,
Well, he grabs his duds and down he goes,
There's not a woman in this town row
Oh, Delaval is a terrible place,
And around the heaps they run a footrace
And even down near the Seghill mine,
To catch the throat, to break the spine
They grabbed his duds, his picks as well,
Down you go, we pay you well,
It's in the evening after dark
With his moleskin pants and dirty shirt,
So join the union while you may,
For that may not be far away,
