Artist : Doc Watson
Song : Dream of the Miner's Child

[Intro] : C G C

[Verse 1] :
C           F           C
A miner was leaving his home for his work
C                 D7           G7
When he heard his little child scream  
   C           F           C
He went to the side of the little girl's bed
C                      G7         C
She said, "Daddy, I've had such a dream!"

[Chorus] :
C                  C7        F       C
Please Daddy don't go to the mines today
C                             G
For dreams have so often come true.
   C         F             C
My Daddy, my daddy, please don't go away,
C                 G7           C
For I never could live without you.

[Verse 2] :
C                F            C
Then smiling and stroking the little girls face
C               D7           G7
He was turning away from her side
    C             F           C    
But she threw her small arms around daddy's neck
C              G7             C  
She gave him a kiss, and then cried: ...

[Verse 3] :
C                      F              C
"Oh I dreamed that the mines were all flaming with fire
C                D7               G7
And the men, all fought for their lives.
     C              F                C
Just then the scene changed, and the mouth of the mine
C                G7              C
Was covered with sweethearts and wives."

[Chorus] :
C                C7        F       C
"Oh daddy, don't go to the mines today,
C                             G
For dreams have so often come true.
   C         F             C
My Daddy, my daddy, please don't go away,
C                 G7           C
For I never could live without you."

[Instrumental] : C  C7  F  C
                 C  G
                 C  F   C
                 C  G7  C

[Verse 4] :
C               F           C
"Go down to the village and tell your dear friends
C                   D7              G7
That as sure as the bright stars do shine,
         C                F        C
There is something that's going to happen today;
C                   G7        C
Please daddy, don't go to the mines."
