    U2 rend hommage aux Dubliners... avec un Bono tout jeune et pas encore très sûr de lui.. en tout cas très ému


    In the town of Springhill, Nova Scotia
    Down in the dark of the Cumberland Mine
    There's blood on the coal and the miners lie
    In the roads that never saw sun nor sky. (x2)

    In the town of Springhill, you don't sleep easy
    Often the earth will tremble and roll
    When the earth is restless, miners die
    Bone and blood is the price of coal. (x2)

    In the town of Springhill, Nova Scotia
    Late in the year of fifty-eight
    Day still comes and the sun still shines
    (But it's) Dark as the grave in the Cumberland mine. (x2)

    Down at the coal face, miners working
    Rattle of the belt and the cutter's blade
    Rumble of the rock and the walls closed round
    (The) Living and the dead men two miles down. (x2)

    Twelve men lay two miles from the pitshaft
    Twelve men lay in the dark and sang
    Long hot days in the miners tomb
    (It was) Three feet high and a hundred long. (x2)

    Three days past and the lamps gave out
    And Kaela Brushton got up and and said
    There’s no more water, or light, or bread
    (So we'll) Live on song and hope instead. (x2)

    Listen for the shouts of the barefaced miners
    Listen thru the rubble for a rescue team
    Six hundred feet of coal and slag
    Hope imprisoned in a three foot seam. (x2)

    Eight days passes and some were rescued
    Leaving the dead to lie alone
    Thru all their lives they dug their grave
    Two miles of earth for a marking stone. (x2)

    The Dubliners are an Irish folk band founded in 1962, making them one of the older bands that are still performing music presently.

    U2 was formed when Bono (vocals and guitar), The Edge (guitar, keyboards and vocals) and Adam Clayton (bass guitar) answered an advert placed by Larry Mullen Jr. (drums and percussion)
