Artist: The Buoys
Trapped in a mine that had caved in
And everyone knows the only ones left
Were Joe and me and Tim
When they broke through to pull us free
The only ones left to tell the tale
Were Joe and me
Where on earth did you go?
God, why don't I know?
Hungry as hell, no food to eat
And Joe said that he would sell his soul
For just a piece of meat
Water enough to drink for two
And Joe said to me, "I'll have a swig
And then there's some for you"
Joe was looking at you
God, what did we do?
I must have blacked out just around then
'Cause the very next thing that I could see
Was the light of the day again
My stomach was full as it could be
And nobody ever got around
To finding Timothy

I found myself awake in the middle of the night with this song going through my head. My older sister had the 33 single play and all I can remember is that people thought Timothy was a donkey. Which really makes no sense because why would anyone end up looking for a donkey if a mine caved in? Does anyone no who Timothy was? Was this a story about men eating another man? Was the man that was eaten black? Any thoughts would be welcome.
