They should have known that trouble was brewing
They should have seen what the old men knew
They should have shut us down
When the hail fell to the ground
From a cloudy sky of baby blueThree o'clock on a cold, cold morning
The big bell wailed as if on cue
A woman's scream was heard
And the news came afterwards
"It's a blow out down in Number Two"Down in Jericho, Kentucky
The mines have all caved in
Down in Jericho
Broken hearts don't mend
Tear stained eyes of kin
Never ever seen
What their future might have beenThe hat lamps burned with a flame like lightning
The coal dust blanketed the morning dew
The young ones looked for kin
And the blind man, he looks grim
'Cause he sees there's nothing that he can doThey pumped up the mud and they chunked out water
They scratched the earth till it turned to sand
And a half mile down below
It's a lost cause the miners know
Meet your maker, boys, the time's at handDown in Jericho, Kentucky
The mines have all caved in
Down in Jericho
Broken hearts don't mend
Tears stained eyes of kin
Never ever seen
What their future might have beenThe fire boss's hands are clean as a whistle
The fat cat knows he's a company man
But he should have bowed down his head
When they hauled out all the dead
But it's business, boys, start 'em up againDown in Jericho, Kentucky
The mines have all caved in
Down in Jericho
Broken hearts don't mend
Tears stained eyes of kin
Never ever seen
What their future might have beenBroken hearts don't mend
Tears stained eyes of kin
Never ever seen
What their future might have been
Это интересно:The Band на протяжении шести лет (с 1968 по 1975) были одной из наиболее популярных и влиятельных рок-групп, чья музыка рассматривалась столь же серьезно, как творения "Rolling stones" и "Beatles". А началось все в 1958-м, когда рок-н-ролльщик из Арканзаса Ронни Хокинс стал набирать себе сопровождающий состав. Одним из первых его соратников стал барабанщик Левон Хелм (р. 26 мая 1942). "Ronnie Hawkins & the Hawks"... продолжение
