Gary T Dark as a Dungeon--3/4 or 4/4 time? (25) RE: Dark as a Dungeon--3/4 or 4/4 time? 14 Jul 03


I am surprised that the particular book I'm using has this discrepancy. It's the "Country Music Hall of Fame Series" (5 volumes) published by Hal Leonard. I'd noticed that the arrangements for a few songs got a little "chord happy" (extra semi-exotic chords in songs everyone plays as 3-chorders), but it flabbergasts me that the time would be wrong.

As per guest Jon's request, here's how it goes (fudging some of the eighth notes):

Come // lis- / ten / -- / you // fel- / lers / -- / so //
young / -- / and / so // fine / -- / -- / And //
seek / -- / not / your // for- / tune / -- / in the //
dark / -- / drear- / y // mine / -- / -- / It'll //
form / -- / as / a // hab- / it / -- / and //
seep / -- / in / /your // soul / -- / -- / Till the //
stream / -- / of / your // blood / -- / is / as //
black / -- / as / the // coal / -- / -- / It's //
dark / -- / as / a // dun- / geon / -- / and//
damp / -- / as /the // dew / -- / -- / Where //
dan- / -- / ger / is // dou- / ble / -- / and //
pleas- / -- / ures / are // few / -- / -- / Where the //
rain / -- / -- / never // falls / -- / -- / and the //
sun / -- / -- / never // shines / -- / -- / It's //
dark / -- / as / a // dun- / geon / -- / way //
down / -- / in / the // mine / -- / -- / ~~ //
