Working at this job is dirty and dangerous
and I’m taking risks anyway
Oh if I had the time and the proper equipment
I could do my job safely each day
Everybody here says they’re sticklers for safety
And I’m not here to say that they lie
I tell ya we just come to work here
we don’t come to die
From singer Anne Feeney’s song, “We Just Come To Work Here (We Don't Come to Die." Anne is the granddaughter of a mineworkers’ organizer; her music is designed to “comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable.”
