 Kathy Mattea - Dark As A Dungeon


CAPO: 3rd Fret




          C F G 
Come and listen you fellows, so young and so fine
     C F C 
And seek not your fortunes in the dark dreary mines
                             F G 
It will form as a habit and seep in your soul
          C F C 
'Til the stream of your blood runs as black as the coal


CHORUS:
            G C 
Where it's dark as a dungeon and damp as the dew
       G F C 
Where danger is double and pleasures are few
                                    F G 
Where the rain never falls and the sun never shines
      C F C 
It's dark as a dungeon way down in the mines


                          F G 
It's a many a man I have known in my day
     C F C 
Who lived just to labour his whole life away
                                  F G 
Like a fiend with his dope, or a drunkard his wine
   C F C 
A man will have lust for the lure of the mines


CHORUS:
            G C 
Where it's dark as a dungeon and damp as the dew
       G F C 
Where danger is double and pleasures are few
                                    F G 
Where the rain never falls and the sun never shines
      C F C 
It's dark as a dungeon way down in the mines


INTERLUDE:  C F C F G 
Well, the midnight or the morning or the middle of day
        C F C 
Is the same to the miner digging away
                                 F G 
Where the demons of death often come by surprise
     C F C 
One fall of the slate and you're buried alive


CHORUS:
            G C 
Where it's dark as a dungeon and damp as the dew
       G F C 
Where danger is double and pleasures are few
                                    F G 
Where the rain never falls and the sun never shines
      C F C 
It's dark as a dungeon way down in the mines


                                    F G 
Well, I hope when I'm gone and the ages shall roll
    C F C 
My body will blacken and turn into coal
                                    F G 
Then I'll look from the door of my heavenly home
     Am Em F C 
And pity the miner digging my bones


CHORUS:
            G C 
Where it's dark as a dungeon and damp as the dew
       G F C 
Where danger is double and pleasures are few
                                    F G 
Where the rain never falls and the sun never shines
      C F C 
It's dark as a dungeon way down in the mines
          Am G F C F F6 C 
Oh, it's dark as a dungeon way down in the mines
