Dark As The Dungeon

Johnny Cash

 EABE
      Oh come all you young fellers, so young and so fine, seek not your
 AEA
fortune in the dark dreary mind.  It'll form as a habit and seep in your
 BEAE
soul, till the stream of you blood runs as black as the coal.  Where it's
 BAEBAE
dark as the dungeon, damp as the dew.  Danger is double, pleasures are few,
 ABE
where the rain never falls, where the sun never shines, it's dark as the
 AEA
dungeon way down in the mine.  Like a man with his dope, like a drunkard with
 BEAE
his wife, a man will have lust for the lure of the mine.  And I'll pray when
 ABEA
I'm dead, and my ages shall roll, that my body would blacken and turn into
 EABE
coal.  And I'd look from the door of my heavenly home and pity the miner
 AEBAEB
diggin my bones.  Where it's dark as the dungeon, damp as the dew.  Dangers
 AEA
are double, pleasures are few, where the rain never falls, the sun never
 BEAE
shines, it's dark as the dungeon way down in the mine.
