Miners' Kids And Wives, one of three songs by Woody Guthrie, published in the May, 1947 issue of People's Songs, memorializing the 1947 mine disaster at Centralia, Illinois.  In a letter to People's Songs headed "Dear People and Dear Songs," Guthrie wrote that Miners' Kids and Wives "is more about the families of the miners than from the lips of the miners their own selves."
