Dark As A Dungeon

  		G Come listen you fellers so C young and D fine 
Oh Em seek not your G fortune in the C dark dreary G mine 
It will form as a habit and C seep in your D soul 
Till the Em stream of your G blood is as C black as the G coal. 
It's D dark as a dungeon and C damp as the G dew 
Where D danger is double and C pleasures are G few 
Where the rain never falls and the C sun never D shines 
It's Em dark as a G dungeon way C down in the G mines. 
It's many a man I've known in my day 
Who lived just to labor his young life away 
Like a fiend with his dope and a drunkard his wine 
A man will have lust for the lure of the mine. 
The midnight, the morning, or the middle of the day 
It's the same to the miner who labors away 
Where the demons of the death often come by surprise 
One fall of the slate and you're buried alive. 
I hope when I'm gone and the ages shall roll 
My body will blacken and turn into coal 
Then I'll look from the door of my heavenly home 
And pity the miner a-diggin' my bones.
