Dark as the Dungeon Lyrics

Oh Come All You Young Fellers So Young And So Fine
Seek Not Your Fortune In A Dark Dreary Mine
It’ll Form As A Habit And Seep In Your Soul
Until The Stream Of Your Blood Runs As Black As The Coal

Where It’s Dark As A Dungeon, Damp As The Dew
Danger Is Double, Pleasures Are Few
Where The Rain Never Falls, The Sun Never Shines
It’s Dark As A Dungeon Way Down In The Mine

Well It’s Many A Man That I’ve Seen In My Day…
(Ha Ha, No Laughing During This Song Please… It’s Being Recorded, I Know. Hell, Don’t You Know It’s Being Recorded?)
…Like A Friend With His Dope And A Drunkard With His Wine
A Man Will Have Lust For The Lure Of The Mine

And Pray When I’m Dead And My Ages Shall Roll
That My Body Would Blacken And Turn Into Coal
Then I’ll Look From The Door Of My Heavenly Home
And Pity The Miner Digging My Bones

Where It’s Dark As A Dungeon, Damp As The Dew
Danger Is Double, Pleasures Are Few
Where The Rain Never Falls, The Sun Never Shines
It’s Dark As A Dungeon Way Down In The Mine
“Thank You Very Much, Thank You Very Much. I’m Sorry About That Little Interruption There, But I Just Want To Tell You That This Show Is Being Recorded For An Album Release On Columbia Records And You Can’t Say ‘hell’ Or ‘shit’ Or Anything Like That. How’s That Grab You, Bob?”
