Songs about Mining

The other day I posted a version of Sixteen Tons performed by Manitoba Hal. Here’s another song about coal mining by Merle Travis, beautifully performed by The Country Gentlemen.

The Mountain by Steve Earle is another tune related to coal mining. Here it is performed here by Steve Earle along with the late Levon Helm and his band.

And one more….here’s Johnny Cash performing Loading Coal
