Waiting At The Gate


Tell the miners' kids and wives,
There's a blast in the number five.
And the families I see standing at the gate.
The inspector years ago said number five's a deadly hole,
And the men most likely won't come out alive.

Waiting at the gate, we are waiting at the gate.
Smoke and fire just boil and roll from that dark and deadly hole,
While the miners' kids and wives wait at the gate.

The inspector told the boss, it was more than a year ago,
You're risking these men's lives in number five.
That hole's full of fumes and dust, full of high explosive gas,
But the boss said we'll just have to take the chance.

Waiting at the gate, we are waiting at the gate.
Smoke and fire just boil and roll from that dark and deadly hole,
While the miners' kids and wives wait at the gate.

Well, the men in the number five kissed their wives and kids goodbye,
And then they walk with their lunch kits up the hill.
Everybody told the owner that this deadly day would come,
But he said we had to work to pay our bills.

Waiting at the gate, we are waiting at the gate.
Smoke and fire just roll and boil from that dark and deadly hole,
While the miners' kids and wives wait at the gate.

Well, I try to get a look of a face I ought to know,
As the men are carried out, wrapped up in sheets.
I can hear the church bells ringing for the hundred and eleven dead,
I can hear the families weeping in the streets.

Waiting at the gate, we are waiting at the gate.
Smoke and fire just roll and boil from that dark and deadly hole,
While the miners' kids and wives wait at the gate.

This explosion struck on Wednesday,
and I stood by the gate till Saturday,
'Til they laid my daddy out with the other men.
In the pocket of his shirt, I found a little note he wrote:
"Never go down in a dangerous mine again."

Waiting at the gate, we are waiting at the gate.
Smoke and fire just roll and boil from that dark and deadly hole,
While the miners' kids and wives wait at the gate.

HOY DESTACAMOS
Nuevo cancionero y discografía

el 07/02/2018

Coincidiendo con el trigésimo aniversario de la publicación de su último disco y como complemento al homenaje que este 2018 le ofrece el Festival BarnaSants, CANCIONEROS publica el cancionero y la discografía de Ramon Muntaner. Con ello queremos además reivindicar su obra y rescatar del olvido unas canciones que siguen sonando modernas basadas en unos textos que —algunos de ellos lamentablemente—, siguen manteniendo toda su vigencia.

HOY EN PORTADA
Novedad editorial

por María Gracia Correa el 12/02/2018

La Tertulia de Granada se convirtió una vez más en referente de la canción de autor y de la poesía de Andalucía, el 26 de enero de 2018, con la presentación de En la raíz del silencio, un libro imprescindible que el profesor y musicólogo Fernando González Lucini ha construido a partir de la recuperación de poemas y dibujos inéditos de Antonio Mata, miembro fundador de Manifiesto Canción del Sur, fallecido en 2014, autor primordial en la historia de la canción de autor andaluza.
