Come on you muckin' slushers
You jack leg, driller and blasters
The price of Uranium is up and there's money to make
Come on ya big rock bolters
Who answer to the name of miner
This old boom town is still around
On the shores of Elliot Lake
Time cards in and out, up and down cages
Gonna make Heaven out of Hell, earn wages
Come on clerky pay me now
I got eighteen holes I'm goin' pow, pow, pow
And there ain't no music finer
She's a damn good song for a miner, a damn good song for a miner
When it's daylight on the town sight and a midnight a way down under
I can hear the shift boss say "shes a muckin' out well"
With hard hats, boots and oilers
Were off to scale the stope boys
Goodbye town we're a goin' down
To the belly of a man made hell
Time cards in and out, up and down cages
Gonna make Heaven out of Hell, earned wages
Come on clerky pay me now
I got eighteen holes I'm goin' pow, pow, pow
And there ain't no music finer
She's a damn good song for a miner, a damn good song for a miner
In the afternoon we'll cage up to the surface and home to supper
But we'll all meet at the Algoden later tonight
Where the wine and the beer and the singin'
Kinda gets a good miner swingin'
And we'll dance around this whole damn town till the sun comes shinin' bright
Time cards in and out, up and down cages
Gonna make Heaven out of Hell, earn wages
Come on clerky pay me now
I got eighteen holes I'm goin' pow, pow, pow
And there ain't no music finer
She's a damn good song for a miner, a damn good song for a miner
Come on you muckin' slushers
You jack leg, drillers and blasters
The price of Uranium is up and there's money to make
Come on you big rock bolters
Who answer to the name of miner
This old boom town it still around on the shores of Elliot Lake
Time cards in and out, up and down cages
Gonna make Heaven out of Hell, earn wages
Come on clerky pay me now
I got eighteen holes I'm goin' pow, pow, pow
And there ain't no music finer
She's a damn good song for a miner, a damn good song for a miner
One hell of a song for a miner!
