The Lost Miners

The Lost Miners
From American Murder Ballads by Olive Woolley Burt. Believed to be about the murder and cannibalization of five prospectors by Alfred Packer



The Lost Miners
(tune unknown)

Six miners went into the mountains
To hunt for precious gold;
It was the middle of winter,
The weather was dreadfully cold.
Six miners went into the mountains,
They had nor food nor shack -
Six miners went into the mountains,
But only one came back.
