Verse 1
It's a working man I am
And I've been down underground
And I swear to God
If I ever see the sun
Verse 2
Oh for any length of time
I can hold it in my mind
I never again
Will go down underground
Verse 3
At the age of sixteen years
Oh he quarrels with his peers
He vowed they'd never
See another one
Verse 4
In the dark recess of the mine
Where you age before your time
And the coal dust lies heavy
On your lungs
Verse 5
It's a working man I am
And I've been down underground
And I swear to God
If I ever see the sun
Verse 6
Oh for any length of time
I can hold it in my mind
I never again
Will go down underground
Verse 7
At the age of sixty four
He will greet you at the door
And he will gently lead you
By the arm
Verse 8
Through the dark recess of the mine
He will take you back in time
And he'll tell you of
The hardships that were had
Verse 9
It's a working man I am
And I've been down underground
And I swear to God
If I ever see the sun
Verse 10
Oh for any length of time
I can hold it in my mind
I never again will go down underground
Verse 11
I never again will go down underground
