VERSE I 
        Am 
I won't see you 'till Christmas 
          F 
I breathe coal dust, I get blisters 
        G 
But the foreman he don't worry 
       G 
He say work boy there's no hurry 
Em              Am 
 Don't that big red sun 
Em              Am 
Look a lot like fire 
         F 
When you come out of the ground 
      Esus        E 
After forty eight hours 

 
      C    G/B  Am   G    F 
Going down down down down down 
      C    G/B Am    G 
Going down in  Durban deep 
      C    G/B  Am   G    F 
Going down down down down down 
           C G/B Am    G 
There's no mercy in my sleep 
C                F 
I just hear that drill and hammer 
  Am       G       F 
I feel the killing heat 
      C   G/B   Am   G      F 
Going two miles down to the heart 
E7             Am 
 Of Durban deep

VERSE II 
      Am 
I was born on amen corner 
        F 
I pound rock face, I get lonely 
       G 
But my family they go hungry 
          G 
Still the boss man he call us lazy 
Em                 Am 
Don't the old blue heaven 
Em              Am 
Look a lot like your eyes 
            F 
When you're blinded by the brightness 
       Esus      E 
Of the Transvaal sky 

 
      C    G/B  Am   G    F 
Going down down down down down 
      C    G/B Am    G 
Going down in  Durban deep 
      C    G/B  Am   G    F 
Going down down down down down 
           C G/B Am    G 
There's no mercy in my sleep 
C                F 
I just hear that drill and hammer 
  Am       G       F 
I feel the killing heat 
      C   G/B   Am   G      F 
Going two miles down to the heart 
E7             Am 
 Of Durban deep
