[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
 
CHORUS
      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

I feel the killing heat
