Song: Dark As A Dungeon


[Verse]

E                   
Oh come all you young fellers 
   A            B
so young and so fine
E                          A           E
seek not your fortune in a dark dreary mine
E                         A            B
it'll form as a habit and seep in your soul
         E                           A            E
till the stream of you blood runs as black as the coal

[Chorus]

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

[Verse]

E                                A            B
like a fiend with his dope and a drunkard his wine
  E                          A           E
a man will have lust for the lure of the mine
E                                  A          B
and I'll pray when I'm dead and my ages shall roll
        E                      A         E
that my body would blacken and turn into coal
E                                 A        B        
then I'd look from the door of my heavenly home 
    E              A         E  
and pity the miner diggin my bones

[Chorus]

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

Tune it down a 1/2 step or play it in bar chords shifted down a fret.
