#1.
Ab Db EbOh, come all you young fellas so young and so fine,
Ab Db Aband seek not your fortune in a dark dreary mine.
Ab Db EbIt'll form as a habit and seep in your soul,
Ab Db Abtill the stream of your blood runs as black as the coal.
CHORUS:
Ab Eb AbWhere it's dark as a dungeon and damp as the dew.
Eb AbWhere the danger is double and pleasures are few.
Ab Db EbWhere the rain never falls and the sun never shines..
Ab Db Abit's dark as a dungeon way down in the mines.
#2.
Ab Db EbWell, it's many a man that I've seen in my day,
Ab Db Abwho lived just to labor his whole life away.
Ab Db EbLike a fiend with his dope and a drunkard his wine..
Ab Db Aba man will have lust, for the lure of the mine.
CHORUS:
Ab Eb AbWhere it's dark as a dungeon and damp as the dew.
Eb AbWhere the danger is double and pleasures are few.
Ab Db EbWhere the rain never falls and the sun never shines..
Ab Db Abit's dark as a dungeon way down in the mines.
#3.
Ab Db EbAnd I pray when I'm dead, and the ages shall roll..
Ab Db Abthat my body would blacken and turn into coal.
Ab Db EbThen I'll look from the door of my Heavenly home
Ab Db Aband pity the miner, digging my bones.
CHORUS:
Ab Eb AbWhere it's dark as a dungeon and damp as the dew.
Eb AbWhere the danger is double and pleasures are few.
Ab Db EbWhere the rain never falls and the sun never shines..
Ab Db Abit's dark as a dungeon way down in the mines.
OUTRO:
Ab Eb AbWhere it's dark as a dungeon and damp as the dew.
Eb AbWhere the danger is double and pleasures are few.
Ab Db EbWhere the rain never falls and the sun never shines..
Ab Db Abit's dark as a dungeon way down in the mines.
A sixties smash from Kraziekhat.
