Key: Am
verse 1 
Am                       G               Am 
Up on Lyon Mountain, the houses look the same. 
                                      Em               Am 
Weathered wood hid kids and wives and lives that never changed. 

It belonged to the Delware and Hudson, 
      G                Am 
Every bit of iron-rich ground, 
                                  Em            Am 
And a pile of sand, big and blue, grew out back of town. 
Am                         G               Am 
Six days went the company, one to the Lord above; 

But the town lived for the afternoon 
         Em                    Am 
That was given to the ball and glove. 
  
C G Around the horn, a can of corn, Dm Am A ground ball will get you two. A life of iron and diamonds Em Am Was all the miners knew.
verse 2 Am G Am They were Poles and Lithuanians; Itals and Irish too. Em Am They dug into America down a hole deep, dark, and cruel. Some crossed the sea to get there; G Am Some were born to die there too. Em Am Sons followed steps down to the mines behind dads they never knew. G Am They came alive between the foul lines with pride and dignity. In the bleachers and the batter's box Em Am A mind could be free.
C G Around the horn, a can of corn, Dm Am A ground ball will get you two. A life of iron and diamonds Em Am Was all the miners knew.
