How about a coal-mining song?

Oh the midnight, and the mornin', and the middle of day,
Are the same to the miner who labors away,
Where the demons of death often come by surprise,
One fall of the slate and you're buried alive.

I'm baffled here. I know it isn't "Sixteen Tons".<snip>



Gialmere,

You are correct that it is not "Sixteen Tons", but oddly enough, both "Sixteen Tons" and my mystery song were written by the same man.

Mosca,

No, your guess is a railroad construction song. Mine is specifically underground coal mining.

That would make the artist Merle Travis but I'm unfamiliar with this particular song since I come from the Tennessee Ernie Ford version of 16 tons.
Have you tried 22 tonight? I said 22.

Winner! Winner! Winner!



Here is a modified version of the lyrics...

Big kids, little kids, kids who climb on rocks
fat kids, skinny kids, even kids with chicken pox

And from the category "Family Classic", name that song...

She's gone where the goblins go
Below!
Below, below
Yo-ho!
Let's open up and sing
And ring the bells out!

Gialmere,

Merle Travis is correct! As for "Sixteen Tons", Travis said he didn't like the song until after Ford made his version (with the snapping fingers) that sold over a million records. In one version that Travis recorded, he changed the final line to "I owe my soul... to Tennessee Ernie Ford!"

Here's another hint to my mystery song: on "The Big Bang Theory" episode where Sheldon and Raj enter the steam tunnels below their university to simulate conditions in a coal mine, Sheldon sings the chorus and the final verse of the song.

Yeah, I know it was a railroad song, but I wanted to guess. I looked up the answer, so I’m disqualified now.

An old cowpoke went riding out one dark and windy day
Upon a ridge he rested as he went along his way
When all at once a mighty herd of red-eyed cows he saw
A'plowin' through the ragged skies and up a cloudy draw
Have you tried 22 tonight? I said 22.
