Sparkles And Shines

  • (Larry Webster)

    Sparkles and shines
    Sparkles and shines
    Like the coal way down in the bottom of the mine
    You know it sparkles and shines

    The eyes of my true love
    Sparkle and shine
    When we lay down at night and turn out the light
    You know they sparkle and shine

    Repeat 1

    All the little children
    Sparkle and shine
    Running to meet me down at the mine
    You know they sparkle and shine

    Money in my pocket
    Sparkles and shines
    Forty hours on overtime
    And you know it sparkles and shines

    Repeat 1

    Fire in the mountain
    Sparkles and shines
    You're gone underground for very last time
    But you know it sparkles and shines

    Marble on my tombstone
    Sparkles and shines
    A gas explosion took my young life
    But you know it sparkles and shines

    Repeat 1

    (as sung by Guy & Candie Carawan)
