Dark As A Dungeon

Well c'mon all you fellas
So young and so fine
Seek not your fortunes
In the dark dreary mine

It'll form as a habit
And will seep in your soul
'Till a stream of your blood runs
As black as the coal

Where its dark as a dungeon
And its damp as a tomb
Dangers are double 
And the pleasures are few

Where the rain never falls
And the sun never shines
Its dark as a dungeon 
Way down in the mine
