lyrics

Days of Night

Miles of darkness, days of night
Down so long I curse the light

When I was just a boy of eight
The dust from that breaker did seal my fate
Now I’m an old man looking back
My back it is broken and my lungs are black

Miles of darkness, days of night
Down so long I curse the light

Never had nothin’ but my name
Worked all my life on another man’s claim
Hear the screaming of the whistle
And the clanging of the bell
Every day we dig deeper and closer to Hell

Miles of darkness, days of night
Down so long I curse the light

Can’t see no further than the light of my lamp
Way down in the blackness it’s cold and it’s damp
I pray the Lord my soul to save
No man should have to dig his own grave

Miles of darkness, days of night
Down so long I curse the light
