about

From a story Lynn's dad would tell about young wife who found a way to pay off her family's debt to the mining company, but was it just enough too late?

lyrics

Each time my love goes to the iron ore mine
I fear for his life, but he says he'll be fine
He laughs at my tears, he laughs at my plan
I'm gonna make mountains of lace to pay the company men
I'll sell my lace, with lace I'll pay

Mountains of lace, not mountains of ore
Mountains of lace pay the company men
He'll work the iron mountain no more
Into its darkness, no longer descend

I sell my lace, my love doesn't know
And from dimes to dollars my savings grow
At the company store I pay off our note
My heart's filled to bursting I'm so filled with hope
I paid the note! I paid the note!

The joy is short-lived it turns into fear
The mine has collapsed, alarms fill my ears

A day and night pass as we all pray as one
For our husbands and brothers, fathers and sons
We pray for husbands, we pray for sons

Hallelujah I hear they've rescued the men
I cry tears of joy and tell my love what I've done
Sold mountains of lace you won't mine again
Now you can work under blue skies and sun
