lyrics

Dark Like a Dungeon

Come all you fellows, so young and so fine,
Seek not your fortune way down in the mine;
It’ll dampen your heart, it’ll darken your soul,
Till the flow of your blood runs as dark as the coal.

Cause it’s dark like a dungeon, damp as the dew
The danger is double, the pleasures are few
Where the rain never falls and the sun never shines;
It’s dark like a dungeon way down in the mines

There’s many a young man I’ve seen in my day
Who spent their whole lives just slaving away;
Like a fiend with his dope or a drunkard his wine,
A man will have lust for the lure of the mine.

Cause it’s dark like a dungeon, damp as the dew
The danger is double, the pleasures are few
Where the rain never falls and the sun never shines;
It’s dark like a dungeon way down in the mines

I hope when I die 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 that’s digging my bones!

Cause it’s dark like a dungeon, damp as the dew
The danger is double, the pleasures are few
Where the rain never falls and the sun never shines;
It’s dark like a dungeon way down in the mines

One More Time!!

Cause it’s dark like a dungeon, damp as the dew
The danger is double, the pleasures are few
Where the rain never falls and the sun never shines;
It’s dark like a dungeon way down in the mines
