Where the rain never falls the sun never shines


"Dark As A Dungeon" by Johnny Cash

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 

Till the stream of your blood runs as black as the coal 

Where it's dark as a dungeon damp as the dew danger is double 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 

Like a fiend with his dope and a drunkard with his wine 

A man will have lust for the lure of the mine 

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...

Thank you all for sharing in my journey of creation. I am humbled to be living my truth everyday. Aloha nui loa to my collectors who have always believed in me. - Carrie Able
