Kathy Mattea - Dark As A Dungeon


CAPO: 3rd Fret




         C                      F            G
Come and listen you fellows, so young and so fine
    C                             F           C
And seek not your fortunes in the dark dreary mines
                            F            G
It will form as a habit and seep in your soul
         C                            F            C
'Til the stream of your blood runs as black as the coal


CHORUS:
           G                     C
Where it's dark as a dungeon and damp as the dew
      G                    F             C
Where danger is double and pleasures are few
                                   F         G
Where the rain never falls and the sun never shines
     C                     F           C
It's dark as a dungeon way down in the mines


                         F           G
It's a many a man I have known in my day
    C                        F           C
Who lived just to labour his whole life away
                                 F            G
Like a fiend with his dope, or a drunkard his wine
  C                          F           C
A man will have lust for the lure of the mines


CHORUS:
           G                     C
Where it's dark as a dungeon and damp as the dew
      G                    F             C
Where danger is double and pleasures are few
                                   F         G
Where the rain never falls and the sun never shines
     C                     F           C
It's dark as a dungeon way down in the mines


INTERLUDE: C    F  C


                                         F         G
Well, the midnight or the morning or the middle of day
       C                 F        C
Is the same to the miner digging away
                                F          G
Where the demons of death often come by surprise
    C                            F       C
One fall of the slate and you're buried alive


CHORUS:
           G                     C
Where it's dark as a dungeon and damp as the dew
      G                    F             C
Where danger is double and pleasures are few
                                   F         G
Where the rain never falls and the sun never shines
     C                     F           C
It's dark as a dungeon way down in the mines


                                   F          G
Well, I hope when I'm gone and the ages shall roll
   C                     F         C
My body will blacken and turn into coal
                                   F        G
Then I'll look from the door of my heavenly home
    Am       Em    F          C
And pity the miner digging my bones


CHORUS:
           G                     C
Where it's dark as a dungeon and damp as the dew
      G                    F             C
Where danger is double and pleasures are few
                                   F         G
Where the rain never falls and the sun never shines
     C                     F           C
It's dark as a dungeon way down in the mines
         Am        G           F           C         F  F6  C
Oh, it's dark as a dungeon way down in the mines
