    Dark as a Dungeon

    [Verse 1]
    Come and listen, you fellows
    So young and so fine
    And seek not your fortune
    In the dark, dreary mines

    [Verse 2]
    It will form as a habit
    Seep in your soul
    Til the blood in your veins
    Runs as black as the coal

    [Verse 3]
    There's many a man
    That I've known in my day
    Who lived just to labor
    His whole life away

    [Verse 4]
    Like a fiend with his dope
    And a drunkard his wine
    A man will have lust for
    The lure of the mine

    [Pre-Chorus]
    It's dark as a dungeon
    Damp as the dew
    The danger is double
    And the pleasures are few

    [Chorus]
    Where the rain never falls
    Where the sun never shines
    It's dark as a dungeon
    Way down in the mine

    [Verse 6]
    I hope when I'm gone
    And the ages shall roll
    My body will blacken
    And turn into coal

    [Verse 7]
    Then I'll look from the door
    Of my heavenly home
    And I'll pity the miners
    A-digging my bones

    [Pre-Chorus]
    It's dark as a dungeon
    Damp as the dew
    The danger is double
    And the pleasures are few

    [Chorus]
    Where the rain never falls
    Where the sun never shines
    It's dark as a dungeon
    Way down in the mine

    Where the rain never falls
    Where the sun never shines
    It's dark as a dungeon
    Way down in the mine
