Dark As The Dungeon  Johnny Cash



















[E]     Oh come all you young fellers, so yo[A]ung and so f[B]ine, s[E]eek not your
fortune in the d[A]ark dreary m[E]ind.  It'll form as a habit and s[A]eep in your
s[B]oul, till the st[E]ream of you blood runs as bl[A]ack as the c[E]oal.  Where it's
d[B]ark as the dungeon, d[A]amp as the d[E]ew.  Da[B]nger is double, plea[A]sures are f[E]ew,
where the rain never falls, where the s[A]un never sh[B]ines, it's d[E]ark as the
dungeon way d[A]own in the m[E]ine.  Like a man with his dope, like a dru[A]nkard with
his w[B]ife, a m[E]an will have lust for the l[A]ure of the m[E]ine.  And I'll pray when
I'm dead, and my a[A]ges shall r[B]oll, that my b[E]ody would blacken and t[A]urn into
c[E]oal.  And I'd look from the door of my hea[A]venly h[B]ome and p[E]ity the miner
di[A]ggin my bo[E]nes.  Where it's d[B]ark as the dungeon, d[A]amp as the d[E]ew.  Dan[B]gers
are double, plea[A]sures are f[E]ew, where the rain never falls, the s[A]un never
sh[B]ines, it's d[E]ark as the dungeon way d[A]own in the m[E]ine.
