That is so beautiful Kevin. Do you have tab you would share?
Sorry, I do not have nor know how to make tablature. Maybe I can get around to making a video of how to play it. I have done that with some of my other songs which have been requested. But basically, it's in the key of A minor.
By the way, the tune is played on a fully chromatic mountain Dulcimer.
Good tune with powerful lyrics, Kevin. (I live in old coal country here in Ohio where many perished from mining disasters.)
Here's the lyrics to the song:
The Hurricane Creek Mine Disaster
We’ll never forget
Oh, just outside the town of Hyden flows the Hurricane Creek.
And underneath those scenic mountains the coal seams runs so deep.
In nineteen seventy existed there a very productive coal mine.
Whose memory causes such despair will never be forgotten for all time.
Will never be forgotten for all time.
Sparking hazards, too much dust, the banned use of primer cord.
Much was said in disgust but their pleas were all but ignored.
All the news of what went wrong lit up the telephone lines.
What was feared for so long: was an explosion at the mine.
On the thirtieth day of December with the Winter air so cold.
A terrible tragedy there occurred as forty men mined for black gold.
As it was by a long tradition before they began their workday,
together in brotherly devotion all would be safe they prayed.
All would be safe they prayed.
Sparking hazards and too much dust, the banned use of primer cord.
Twelve twenty was the time when there was a terrible roar,
which took the life of thirty eight men as through the tunnels it tore.
Fellow miners crawled on hands and knees and descended into the dark,
to rescue dear friends in need but it was hopeless from the start.
It was hopeless from the start.
No doubt we’ll always remember it’s in Heaven where they reside.
On that awful day of December, God called thirty eight brave souls to his side.
Love this.Glad you spun it out.
