Ballad of John Egan

 

Lyrics

John Egan is a meek man
A miner, a meek man
And 'The meek shall inherit the Earth', they say
'The meek shall inherit the Earth'

John Egan mined for 50 years
He slaved for 50 years
He mined in the morning
He mined all those days
He served for 50 years

John Egan has a tale to tell
He has a life to tell
And 'It's time that tale was told
Time his life was told

The bells toll, the bells toll
John Egan sleeps and dreams
He dreams of Heaven
He dreams of His Maker
He dreams of Paradise Row
He dreams that the meek shall inherit the Earth
The meek shall inherit the Earth

John Egan is a meek man
A miner, a meek man
And this is the tale the bell tolls
This is the tale he tells

(lyrics: Keith Armstrong / music: Gary Miller)
