    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
    'Til the stream of your blood runs as black as the coal
    Where it's dark as a dungeon and damp as the dew
    Where the danger is double and pleasures are few
    Where the rain never falls the sun never shines
    It's a dark as a dungeon way down in the mine

    Well it's many a man that I've seen 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
    Where it's dark as a dungeon
    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
