A little trip into my psyche.
Did you ever hear about the miner's trapped in Shepton for 14 days back in the 1960's? They claimed to have been visited by (then recently deceased) Pope John XXIII, who stayed w/ them until they were rescued. http://www.edconrad.com/lifeafterdeath/page2.htmlBeati Ioannes, Ora Pro Nobis"Miner's life is like a sailor'stake a trip to cross the wavesevery day, his life's in dangerstill he ventures being brave.Watch the rocksthey're fallin' daily.careless miners always fail.keep you hand upon the dollarand your eyes upon the scaleUnion miners stick togetherthey don't heed no operator's tale.keep you hand upon the dollarand your eyes upon the scale."-want the chords? it's in "G"
tony c-I'm not familiar with the story of those miners or the song. I will have to have you play it for me sometime.I can only hope these poor miners had some similar comfort in their last hours.
