    What a chilling, sad, true song. Miner’s are my heros. My dad and father-in-law were both miners in Logan County.

  2. Frank Thompson says:

    Both of my grandfathers were coal miners and my father as well who worked for Massey. I remember that we were always worried about him. My heart and prayers go out to the miners that lost their lives and to their grieving families.
