I / swear to God,

Who / vowed they'd never / see another / one, /
       / F                  /
In the / dark recess of the / mine,
          / Bb              / F
Where you / age before your / time, and

The / coal dust lies / heavy on your / lungs. /

Old will / greet you at the / door, and 
      / F                      / C    /
He'll / gently lead you by the / arm, /
            / F                  /
Through the / dark recess of the / mine,
         / Bb               / F
Old will / take you back in / time, and

He'll / tell you of the / hardships that were / had. /
