      About "Dark As A Dungeon"

      Lyrics for Dolly Parton - "Dark As A Dungeon"

      (Merle Travis)
      Come and listen you fellows
      So young and do fine
      And seek not your fortune
      In the dark, dreary mines

      It will form as a habit
      Seep in your soul
      'Til the blood in your veins
      Runs as black as the coal

      There's many a man
      That I've 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 lust for
      The lure of the mine

      It's dark as a dungeon
      Damp as the dew
      The danger is 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

      I hope when I'm gone
      And the ages shall roll
      My body will blacken
      And turn into coal

      Then I'll look out the door
      Of my heavenly home
      And I'll pity the miners
      A-diggin' my bones

      It's dark as a dungeon
      Damp as the dew
      The danger is 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

      Where the rain never falls
      Where the sun never shines
      It's dark as a dungeon
      Way down in the mine
