Title: Salt of the Earth

We thank the men of Cheshire
Who mine the Cheshire salt
Their work has saved the nation
From grinding to a halt

We thank them for their fortitude
In grafting night and day
Mining salt to fill the trucks
Which queue along the way

We praise them for their efforts
Those doughty Cheshire men
And hope such extreme weather
Will not return again
