                              Dark as the Dungeon
                                 by Johnny Cash

[Verse 1]
E                                     A             B  
     Oh, come all you young fellers, young and so fine
 E                            A           E
Seek not your fortune in the dark dreary mine
                           A            B
It'll form as a habit and seep in your soul
             E                           A           E
'Till the stream of your blood runs as black as the coal

[Chorus]
            B                  A           E
Where it's dark as a dungeon, damp as the dew
  B                   A          E
Danger is double, pleasures are few
                                 A          B
Where the rain never falls, the sun never shines
      E                     A           E
It's dark as a dungeon way down in the mine


[Verse 2]
 E
Like a fiend with his dope,
           A            B
And a dropper with his wine
   E                          A           E
A man will have less for the lure of the mine
                                   A          B
And, I pray when I'm dead and the ages shall roll
         E                      A         E
That my body would blacken and turn into coal
                                      A      B
Then I'll look from the door of my heavenly home
     E
And pity the miner digging my bones


[Chorus]
            B                  A           E
Where it's dark as a dungeon, damp as the dew
  B                   A          E
Danger is double, pleasures are few
                                 A          B
Where the rain never falls, the sun never shines
      E                     A           E
It's dark as a dungeon way down in the mine

I thought it sounded good too. Then I tried playing with the CD, but it didn't sound right. I tried using the capo and playing in the same key to play the higher notes the guitar seems to be playing. (E-A-B --> capo2 is D-G-A --> capo 4 is A-D-E...)

Some of the tabs here of Johnny Cash tunes are off by a half note (sometimes he played them more than one way --> I Walk the Line was played with and without a capo at 1). I think this was played with Capo 1 D-G-A, a half step lower than this tab... of course you can play it in any key suitable to you.

Nice tab.

how does one sort out chords by ear when they can't even get the lyrics right?
