Two of the  8 Verses

Ballad of The Sago Mine Disaster, January 2, 2006
Verse 1

Thirteen men went down that day
In the sago Mine just to earn their pay
They went two miles down in that shaft
and were trapped down there by an awful blast.

                   Chorus:                 And the Lord said, "sons your work is done
Just take my hand I'll lead you home."

Verse 8

                                              Now let's stand together and pray for them
Their families, children and all their friends.
Copyright 2006                         And for those brave men who went inside
Lonesome Ride Bluegrass           To rescue brothers from the Sago mine.
