Lyrics

The Dubliners

You see they are working men

[Chorus]
It's a working man I am and I've been down underground
And I swear to God if I ever see the sun
Over any length of time, I can hold it in my mind
I never again will go down underground

At the age of sixteen years, he quarreled with his peers
And he swears there will never be another on
In the dark recess of the mine, where you age before your time
And the coal dust lies heavy on your lungs

[Chorus]

At the age of sixty-four,
If he lives that long,
He'll greet you at the door
And he'll gently lead you by the arm
In the dark recess of the mine,
He can take you back in time
Tell you of the hardships that were there

[Chorus: x2]

No, I never again will go down underground
