Dark As A Dungeon
Glen Campbell
written by Merle Travis

Intro  (Do-Bro in A)

Verse 1

A                A7            D            E
Come listen you fellows     so young and so fine
    A                            D           A
And seek not your fortune   in a dark dreary mine
                A7             D            E
It'll form as a habit       an seep in your soul
         A                          D            A
Till the stream of your blood is as black as the coal

Chorus 1

     E            E7           D           A
It's dark as a dungeon      an damp as the dew
      E               E7        D             A
Where troubles are doubled  and pleasures are few
                      A7            D         E
Where the rain never falls  And the sun never shines
    A                           D           A
Its dark as a dungeon       way down in the mine


riff   A  D  A

Verse 2

A                    A7             D          E
Well I hope when I'm gone   and the ages shall roll
   A                            D         A
My body will blacken        and turn into coal
                        A7         D        E
Then I'll look from the door of my heavenly home 
    A               D          A
And pity the miners digging my bones

Verse 3

A                  A7                D         E
The midnight   the morning    or the middle of day
       A                          D      A 
Is the same to the miner      who labors away.
                    A7              D       E
Where the demons of death     often come by surprise,
    A                            D      A
One fall of the slate and you're buried alive.

Chorus 2

E                E7       D           A
Its dark as a dungeon and damp as the dew
      E            E7       D             A
Where danger is doubled and pleasures are few
                     A7               D         E
Where the rain never falls    And the sun never shines
    A                     D           A
Its dark as a dungeon way down in the mine
