lefthanded guitar Schooldays Over - sung by Chieftains (28) Lyr Req: Beauitful song sung by Chieftains 16 Mar 12

The other night the Chieftains , along with The Low Anthem, a young folk/rock group, performed a beautiful song, that gave me goosebumps, on the Letterman show (who still has the best music venue on tv I've EVER heard anywheres)

It sounds traditional, but I don't know it: First verse (not exact words) go

Schoolday's over
C'mon then John
Time to be getting your pit boots on
On with your sark and oilskin trousers
Time to be on your way
Time to be learning the pitman's job
Earning the pit man's pay.

Very haunting song- I would like to learn it to sing at a Irish song themed jam I'm going to- does anyone know title and chords?
