SWEET GUINEVERE (Gordon Lightfoot) Gordon Lightfoot Sweet Guinevere youíre off to the coal town tonight And your young brother Ernieís up in Pittsburgh PA You know mother loves you, and dadís in the mine So donít go to the coal town, Guinevere, if youíre kind She loves a young man and he lives in the town He leaves the house early for he works underground He makes a good wage for a coal minerís son And sheís a bit pretty, just turned twenty-one Sweet Guinevere youíre off to the coal town tonight And your young brother Ernieís up in Pittsburgh PA You know mother loves you, and dadís in the mine So donít go to the coal town, Guinevere, shut the blind She knows her good motherís not feeliní no pain She remembers an explosion and the black falling rain She paints her thin lips in her dewy-eyed way Then she says to the daughter, dear daughter I pray Sweet Guinevere youíre off to the coal town tonight And your young brother Ernieís up in Pittsburgh PA You know mother loves you, and dadís in the mine So donít go to the coal town, Guinevere, if youíre kind
