Come and listen you fellows, young and so fine,
It will form as a habit and seep in your soul,

Where danger is double and pleasures are few,
And it's dark as a dungeon way down in the mines.
It's a-many a man I have known in my day,
Like a fiend with his dope and a drunkard his wine,

Where danger is double and pleasures are few,
And it's dark as a dungeon way down in the mines.
O midnight, or the morning, or the middle of the day
Where the demons of death often come by surprise

Where danger is double and pleasures are few,
And it's dark as a dungeon way down in the mines.
I hope when I'm gone and the ages shall roll,
Then I'll look from the door of my heavenly home,

Where danger is double and pleasures are few,
And it's dark as a dungeon way down in the mines.
