cetmst Lyr Req: Coal Black Faces (Vera Aspey) (10) RE: Lyr Req: Coal Black Faces 09 Feb 18


The full verse from Jean Ritchie's "The L and N Don't Stop Here Any More":
I used to think my daddy was a black man
With scrip enough to buy the company store
But now he goes downtown with empty pockets
And his face is white as February snow.

Actually it was probably blue-gray from pneumoconiosis or black-lung disease
