                Rescue From Moose River Gold Mine by Wilf Carter

Chorded by Gary W

This song is about a true event that happened on April 12, 1936

For those who want to read about it, go to:

Capo 1st Fret – the chord patterns are the same in every verse

(F) Way down in (Bb) old Nova (F) Scotia
Moose (C) River, it seems, is the (F) name
Three (Bb) Canadians on Easter (F) Sunday
To the (C) tumbledown gold mine they (F) came

They descended the (C) mine for in-(F)-spection
Never (C) dreaming Fate trailed them close (F) by
With a (Bb) crash that gave them no (F) warning
En-(C)-tombed in that mine there to (F) die

Brave (Bb) men from all over the (F) country
Volun-(C)-teered to give up their (F) lives
They (Bb) slaved with unceasing (F) efforts
It (C) seemed that death they de-(F)-fied

Long days and (C) nights they had (F) labored
Turned (C) back when great cave-ins (F) fell
While (Bb) far below patiently (F) waiting
Three (C) men were in one living (F) Hell

Many (Bb) times turned back when near (F) rescue
They (C) seen all was blocking their (F) way
With a (Bb) prayer on their lips they worked (F) onward
We must (C) win, we must win, pray we (F) may

On Sunday they (C) got their first (F) message
From the (C) men prisoned far far be-(F)-low
“Can you (Bb) help us?” they heard the men (F) calling
“Our (C) suff'rings God above only (F) knows.”

Next (Bb) message filled all hearts with (F) sorrow
As they (C) heard them say “One pal is (F) gone
We are (Bb) trying our best to hold on (F) boys
Do your (C) best. Don't make it too (F) long.”

At last the great (C) strain it was (F) broken
A (C) miner out of breath brought the (F) news
`We have (Bb) won the great fight!” he was (F) calling
“At (C) last we have dug our way (F) through!”

That (Bb) great fight against the Dark (F) Angel
It is (C) one fighting heart all the (F) way
Still a (Bb) tragedy came with the (F) rescue
From the (C) tomb of those terrible (F) days

Now friends, this (C) story is (F) ending
With (C) hardships of many a (F) day
But this (Bb) rescue will go down in (F) hist'ry
Of the (C) gold mine down Moose River (F) way
