Elton John - "Durban Deep Elton John Bernie Taupin" lyrics

I won't see you 'till Christmas

I breathe coal dust, I get blisters
But the foreman he don't worry

He say work boy there's no hurry

Don't that big red sun
Look a lot like fire

When you come out of the ground

After forty eight hours

Going down down down down down

Going down in Durban deep

Going down down down down down
There's no mercy in my sleep
I feel the killing heat
I just hear that drill and hammer

Going two miles down to the heart

Of Durban deep

I was born on amen corner

I pound rock face, I get lonely

But my family they go hungry

Sill the boss man he call us lazy

Don't the old blue heaven

Look a lot like your eyes

When you're blinded by the brightness

Of the Transvaal sky
