Dark as a Dungeon Lyrics

(Merle Travis)
© '46 Unichappell Music, BMI

Oh come all you young fellers young and so fine
Seek not your fortune in a dark dreary mine
It'll form as a habit and seep in your soul
Till the stream of your blood is as black as the coal

Where it's dark as a dungeon damp as the dew
Danger is double and the pleasures are few
Where the rain never falls the sun never shines
It's a dark as a dungeon way down in the mine
[ trumpets ]
Well I'll pray when I'm dead and my ages shall roll
That my body would blacken and turn into coal
Then I'll look from the door of heavenly home
And pity the miner digging my bones

Where it's dark as a dungeon...
