frank tovey – dark as a dungeon lyrics

Loading...

come all you young you fellows
so young and do fine
seek not your fortune
in the dark, dreary mines

it will form like a habit
and seep in your soul
’til of your blood
is black as the coal

it’s dark as a dungeon
and damp as the dew
the dangers are double
and the pleasures are few

where the rain never falls
where the sun never shines
it’s dark as a dungeon
way down in the mine

there’s many a man
i have known in my day
who lived just to labor
his whole life away

like a fiend with his dope
and a drunkard his wine
a man will have l-st for
the lure of the mine

and i hope when i’m gone
and the ages will roll
my body will blacken
and turn into coal

then i’ll look from the door
of my heavenly home
and pity the miners
a – diggin’ my bones

it’s dark as a dungeon
and damp as the dew
the dangers are double
and the pleasures are few

where the rain never falls
where the sun never shines
it’s dark as a dungeon
way down in the mine
