#1.
Ab                               Db           Eb
Oh, come all you young fellas so young and so fine,
    Ab                         Db          Ab
and seek not your fortune in a dark dreary mine.
Ab                        Db           Eb
It'll form as a habit and seep in your soul,
         Ab                           Db           Ab
till the stream of your blood runs as black as the coal.

CHORUS:
Ab         Eb                    Ab
Where it's dark as a dungeon and damp as the dew.
          Eb                   Ab
Where the danger is double and pleasures are few.
Ab                                 Db        Eb
Where the rain never falls and the sun never shines..
     Ab                    Db          Ab
it's dark as a dungeon way down in the mines.

#2.
Ab                              Db         Eb
Well, it's many a man that I've seen in my day,
    Ab                      Db          Ab
who lived just to labor his whole life away.
Ab                               Db           Eb
Like a fiend with his dope and a drunkard his wine..
  Ab                          Db          Ab
a man will have lust, for the lure of the mine.

CHORUS:
Ab         Eb                    Ab
Where it's dark as a dungeon and damp as the dew.
          Eb                   Ab
Where the danger is double and pleasures are few.
Ab                                 Db        Eb
Where the rain never falls and the sun never shines..
     Ab                    Db          Ab
it's dark as a dungeon way down in the mines.

#3.
Ab                                Db         Eb
And I pray when I'm dead, and the ages shall roll..
        Ab                     Db        Ab
that my body would blacken and turn into coal.
Ab                                 Db       Eb
Then I'll look from the door of my Heavenly home
    Ab              Db         Ab
and pity the miner, digging my bones.

CHORUS:
Ab         Eb                    Ab
Where it's dark as a dungeon and damp as the dew.
          Eb                   Ab
Where the danger is double and pleasures are few.
Ab                                 Db        Eb
Where the rain never falls and the sun never shines..
     Ab                    Db          Ab
it's dark as a dungeon way down in the mines.

OUTRO:
Ab         Eb                    Ab
Where it's dark as a dungeon and damp as the dew.
          Eb                   Ab
Where the danger is double and pleasures are few.
Ab                                 Db        Eb
Where the rain never falls and the sun never shines..
     Ab                    Db          Ab
it's dark as a dungeon way down in the mines.
