Dark As A Dungeon Lyrics

Come all you young fellers, so young and so fine
and seek not your fortunes way down in the mine
it will form like a habit and seep in your soul
'til the stream of your blood flows as black as the coal
It's dark as a dungeon and damp as the dew
where the dangers are double and the pleasures are few
where the rain never falls and the sun never shines
it's dark as a dungeon way down in the mines
There is many a man i have seen in my day
who lived just to labor his whole life away
like the fiend with his dope and the drunkard his wine
a man will have lust for the lure of the mine
It's dark as a dungeon and damp as the dew
where the dangers are double and the pleasures are few
where the rain never falls and the sun never shines
it's dark as a dungeon way down in the mines
I hope when i'm dead and the ages shall roll
that my body will blacken and turn into coal
i will look from the door of my heavenly home
and pity the miner a' diggin' my bones
It's dark as a dungeon and damp as the dew
where the dangers are double and the pleasures are few
where the rain never falls and the sun never shines
it's dark as a dungeon way down in the mines
it's dark as a dungeon way down in the mine
it's dark as a dungeon way down in the mine
