Listen
[Verse 1]
G    G                     C         D
Come listen you fellers so young and fine
   Em            G              C           G
Oh seek not your fortune in the dark dreary mine
        G                   C            D
It will form as a habit and seep in your soul 
         Em             G           C            G
Till the stream of your blood is as black as the coal.

[Chorus]
     D                     C           G
It's dark as a dungeon and damp as the dew
      D                    C             G
Where danger is double and pleasures are few
          G                        C         D
Where the rain never falls and the sun never shines
     Em        G           C           G
It's dark as a dungeon way down in the mines.

[Verse 2]
     G               C           D
It's many a man I've known in my day
    Em            G         C          G
Who lived just to labor his young life away
       G                         C            D
Like a fiend with his dope and a drunkard his wine
  Em            G            C           G
A man will have lust for the lure of the mine.

[Chorus]
     D                     C           G
It's dark as a dungeon and damp as the dew
      D                    C             G
Where danger is double and pleasures are few
          G                        C         D
Where the rain never falls and the sun never shines
     Em        G           C           G
It's dark as a dungeon way down in the mines.

[Verse 3]
    G                             C             D
The midnight, the morning, or the middle of the day
          Em         G         C      G
It's the same to the miner who labors away
          G             C                   D
Where the demons of the death often come by surprise
    Em          G                C      G
One fall of the slate and you're buried alive.

[Chorus]
     D                     C           G
It's dark as a dungeon and damp as the dew
      D                    C             G
Where danger is double and pleasures are few 
          G                        C         D
Where the rain never falls and the sun never shines
     Em        G           C           G
It's dark as a dungeon way down in the mines.

[Verse 4]
  G                          C          D
I hope when I'm gone and the ages shall roll
   Em        G           C         G
My body will blacken and turn into coal
           G                       C        D
Then I'll look from the door of my heavenly home
    Em       G       C          G
And pity the miner a-diggin' my bones.

[Chorus]
     D                     C           G
It's dark as a dungeon and damp as the dew
      D                    C             G
Where danger is double and pleasures are few
          G                        C         D
Where the rain never falls and the sun never shines
     Em        G           C           G
It's dark as a dungeon way down in the mines.

[Outro]
     Em        G           C           G
It's dark as a dungeon way down in the mines.
     Em        G           C           G
It's dark as a dungeon way down in the mines.
