School Days Over
The Chieftains Lyrics


Schooldays over, come on then, John
Time to be gettin' your pit boots on
On with your sark and moleskin trousers
It's time you were on your way
Time you were learnin' the pitman's job
And earnin' the pitman's pay

Come on then, Jim, it's time to go
Time you were workin' down below
Time to be handlin' a pick and a shovel
You start at the pits today
Time you were learnin' the collier's job
And earnin' the collier's pay

Come on then, Dai, it's almost light
Time you were off to the anthracite
The mornin' mist is on the valley
It's time you were on your way
Time you were learnin' the miner's job
And earnin' the miner's pay

Schooldays over, come on then, John
Time to be gettin' your pit boots on
On with your sark and moleskin trousers
It's time you were on your way
Time you were learnin' the pitman's job
And earnin' the pitman's pay
