Gourds — Coppermine lyrics

Coppermine, oh coppermine

My great-great grandfolk on my father's side

Used to work, in a coppermine - oh yeah

A penny here, a penny there

Won't you drop one in my waterwell

The women lived in maine* my friend

The men they lived underground

Copperwire oh copperwire

Clever clever copperwire

Wrapped in black rubber

Never knew it was a miner's manner

I loved so well

A penny here, a penny there

Won't you drop one in my waterwell

The women lived in maine my friend

The men they lived underground
