Coal keeps the lights on

He set his sights on the faceless bureaucrats shutting the mines down. And the deafening silence that met his plea in that hearing room. Has any of you ever experienced a war zone?

On behalf of the victims of EPA policies. Let the American people hear his song. From this war on coal. Rose was invited by Sen. I believe we have to save the people first.

Because it begins and ends as a love song for a way of life that is being destroyed by the very government on whose behalf the narrator served in uniform overseas.

And how the faceless administrative state works.

Jimmy Rose - Coal Keeps the Lights On Lyrics

That would be real reality TV — some great reality TV. Come visit our churches and you will find those same people coming together in prayer in these had times. The numbing sound of indifference to human life that embodies the modern administrative state.

The people he was writing about just want their jobs back, their way of life back. And doing so without the consent of the American people, without the chance to vote, debate, or dissent.

He was talking about home. Tires on the truck and a sundress on my baby girl. Not Congress, not the voters, and certainly not the miners and their families. Before he began his testimony, Rose stood up and recited the Pledge of Allegiance.

Those in attendance quickly followed. The waitresses who serve those miners and their families, and the car salesmen and women who sell them their cars.

Coal Keeps The Lights On

Victims like the coal miner in that song he sang to America — and all of the people who depend on those miners for a living. I hope I can say that coal kept the lights on. Rose then went on to make his case. Let them hear his plea to those EPA administrators. Unlike Woody Guthrie and Pete Seeger — both of whom loved to rail against capitalism and corporations — Rose chose not to rail against the big coal companies.
