Song Meaning This song touches my life in numerous ways. If you're not familiar with the history of coal mining, the references in this song must be quite mysterious.
Hazard Hollow probably refers to Hazard County, Kentucky. The song is generally about what happened to miners when a mine ran out of coal and shut down, leaving the dependent miners destitute.
I remember many friends who once came home blackened by coal dust, when the jobs ran out they indeed looked white as snow. Miners do not acquire suntans. Kudzu vines are an invasive species that grows rampantly throughout the region, in the right conditions they can completely envelop and kill native trees. Dont believe it? The miners who worked for these companies, their lives were often totally dependent on the company: They lived in The L&N Dont Stop Here Anymore - Johnny Cash - Biggest Hits housing "coal camps"bought food from a company-owned general store, were paid in company scrip instead of regular money, and when they couldnt make ends meet, they received "loans" or advances on pay from the company Some miners went so deeply into this debt-trap, the song "Sixteen Tons" includes a line "St Peter dont you call me, cause I cant go I owe my soul to the company store".
This describes mining conditions in the early half of the 20th century. When the mines were working, miners were paid quite well and had a reputation for thick wallets. But still I witnessed the results of several shut-downs and strikes, and its not real fun what happens to a small town when its major source of employment shuts down. Seems the same story is played out time and again in every industry, all over the world, with the recent recession.
