Lyrics

THERE ARE JEWELS IN THE DARKNESS
THERE ARE TREASURES DOWN BELOW
AND STRANGE GLIMMERS IN THE SHADOWS
WHERE THE CHILDREN CANNOT GO
NOW I KNOW YOU MISS YOUR DADDY
BUT HE'S GONNA BE JUST FINE
DON'T WORRY LITTLE DARLIN
DADDY'S JUST DOWN IN THE MINE

THERE ARE THINGS THAT CAN'T BE MEASURED
OR TOUCHED BY TINY HANDS
THERE ARE COUNTLESS WORLDLY WONDERS
NOT EVEN DADDY UNDERSTANDS
BUT IF YOU SHOULD HAVE A QUESTION
JUST DROP ME A LINE
I'M NEVER TOO FAR AWAY FROM YOU
DADDY'S JUST DOWN IN THE MINE

NOW A POCKET FULL OF SILVER
OR A WAGONLOAD OF GOLD
OR A TRUCKLOAD OF DIAMONDS
I WOULD LEAVE DOWN BY THE ROAD
I WOULD TRADE A DEVIL'S RANSOM
JUST TO SEE YOUR TWO EYES SHINE
SO WHEN I'M GONE, REMEMBER
DADDY'S JUST DOWN IN THE MINE
