In the black dust towns of East Tennessee
All the works about the same
Well you may not go to a job in the ground
But you'll learn the Miner's Refrain

[Chorus]
I'm down in a hole, I'm down in a hole
Down in a deep dark hole
I'm down in a hole, I'm down in a hole
Down in a deep dark hole

Well you searched the rain for the silver cloud
And you wait on days of gold
When you pitch to the bottom and the dirt comes down
You cry, so cold, so cold

[Chorus]

Now there's something good in a worried song
For the trouble in your soul
Cause a worried man's been a long way down
Down in a deep dark hole

[Chorus]

I'm down in a deep dark hole
