Lyrics to Dark As A Dungeon
Dark As A Dungeon Video:
Come all you young fellers so young and so fine Seek not your fortune in the dark dreary mine It?ll form as a habit it?ll seed in your soul Till the blood in your veins runs black as the coal For it?s dark as a dungeon and it?s damp as the dew Where the dangers are double the pleasures are few Where the rain never falls the sun never shines Oh God it?s dark as a dungeon way down in the mines Oh it?s many a man I?ve known in my day Who lived just to labor his whole life away Like a fiend for his dope a drunkard his wine A man will have lust for the lure of the mine Oh I hope when I die and the ages do roll Yes my body will harden and turn into coal And I look from the door of my heavenly home To see a poor miner a diggin? my bones
