Dropkick Murphys – Buried Alive Lyrics

Nothing they could do but sit down there
with the black coal all around them,
and the water rose so quick and cold,
an unlikely place to drown.

Nine in the mine, trapped down below-
down, down, down in the ground
and this’ll be the day I didn’t kiss my wife goodbye,
take care of my family I’m buried alive

They held their heads up high
as they struggled hard to breath
and asked the Lord to open his arms
for the nine souls he’d receive

Nine in the mine, trapped down below-
down, down, down in the ground
and this’ll be the day I didn’t kiss my wife goodbye,
take care of my family I’m buried alive

They latched themselves together
so in death they might be found
and prayed there for a miracle
some 24 stories down.

Nine in the mine, trapped down below-
down, down, down in the ground
and this’ll be the day I didn’t kiss my wife goodbye,
take care of my family I’m buried alive

Down, down, down in the ground.

[Dropkick Murphys – Buried Alive Lyrics]
