Craig Bancoff Pens Tune for Coal Mine Disaster Victims

Craig Bancoff wrote a song about a coal mining disaster and would like to reach out to the victims effected by the tragedy and offer the song to the families effected. The song is called 'Angels Love Coal Mines.'

Craig's family was from a little coal mining town in western Pennsylvania and the song is a story he was told by a family member. After a coal mining disaster, all the families in the town told their young children that angel's loved coal mines so much that they took their daddy's to be with them. The song is called, "Angel's Love Coal Mines."

You can listen and download the free song at his website, www.craigbancoff.com.

'Angel's Love Coal Mines:'

We used to live where the slow creek would wind, on it's way through them woods, to the Chipyqua mines. Where 20 young men went down, into the devils soul. But angels love coal mines, that's what we were told. Well angels love coal mines, so that's how it goes. She was never quiet the same, after he died. And now I share his name, with his darker side. And when all our possessions, were traded and sold. Angles love coal mines, that's what I was told. Angels love coal mines, so that's where they go. When they are hiding, they hide below. I've spent 34 years, off of highway 49, and on those dirt roads and fields, and the foot hills of the northern rail line, I had a dream that the engine come to take me home, where everything is gold, but angels love coal. Angels love coal mines, so that's where they go, when they are hiding, they hide below. Can't find them on highways, in strip malls and bars, cause angels love coal mines, so that's where they are. Angels love coal mines, angels love coal mines, angels love coal mines.
