Johnny Cash - "Dark As A Dungeon"


Dark as a Dungeon
Recorded by:Johnny Cash
Written by: M. Travis
Recorded:November 12, 1963 Nashville, Tennessee

I noticed some problems with other songs I sent to COWPIE. Here's the correct

Oh come all you young fellows young and so fine
Seek not your fortune in a dark dreary mine
It'll form as a habit and seep in your soul
Til' the stream of your blood runs as black the coal

Chorus: Where it's dark as a dungeon damp as the dew
Danger is doubled pleasures are few
Where the rain never falls the sun never shines
It's dark as a dungeon way down in the mine
Well I pray when I'm dead the ages shall roll
That my body will blacken and turn into coal
Then I'll look from the door of my heavenly home
And pity the miner digging my bones
