G                      C      D
Come listen you fellers so young and fine

Em        G          C       G
Oh seek not your fortune in the dark dreary mine

                          C        D
It will form as a habit and seep in your soul

       Em         G       C       G
Till the stream of your blood is as black as the coal!


   D                C         G
It's dark as a dungeon and damp as the dew

   D                 C         G
Where danger is double and pleasures are few

                                 C      D
Where the rain never falls and the sun never shines

   Em    G      C        G
It's dark as a dungeon way down in the mines!

G                 C       D
It's many a man I've known in my day

  Em       G      C         G
Who lived just to labor his young life away

                               C         D
Like a fiend with his dope and a drunkard his wine

Em          G         C        G
A man will have lust for the lure of the mine!


    D                 C      G
It's dark as a dungeon and damp as the dew

    D                C           G
Where danger is double and pleasures are few

                                C      D
Where the rain never falls and the sun never shines

   Em     G     C         G
It's dark as a dungeon way down in the mines!


  G                         C          D
The midnight,.. the morning,.. or the middle of the day

         Em    G    C    G
It's the same to the miner who labors away

         G                C         D
Where the demons of the death often come by surprise

  Em       G           C   G
One fall of the slate and you're buried alive!

   D                   C     G
It's dark as a dungeon and damp as the dew

    D                C        G
Where danger is double and pleasures are few

                                C      D
Where the rain never falls and the sun never shines

   Em    G       C        G
It's dark as a dungeon way down in the mines!

G                       C      D
I hope when I'm gone and the ages shall roll

Em    G        C    G
My body will blacken and turn into coal

          G                   C   D
Then I'll look from the door of my heavenly home

  Em   G  C      G
And pity the miner a-diggin' my bones!


   D                   C     G
It's dark as a dungeon and damp as the dew

    D                 C          G
Where danger is double and pleasures are few

                                 C      D
Where the rain never falls and the sun never shines

   Em     G      C        G
It's dark as a dungeon way down in the mines!


   Em      G     C         G
It's dark as a dungeon way down in the mines!

   Em      G     C           G
It's dark as a dungeon way down in the mines!
