Durban Deep

Elton John a Bernie Taupin

Text písně

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

Goin’ down, down, down, down, down
Goin’ down in Durban deep
Goin’ down, down, down, down, down
There’s no mercy in my sleep
I just hear the drill an’ hammer
Feel the killin’ heat
Goin’ 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
Still the boss man he call us lazy
Don’t the ole blue heaven
Look a lot like your eyes
When you’re blinded by the brightness
Of the Transvaal sky

Goin’ down, down, down, down, down
Goin’ down in Durban deep
Goin’ down, down, down, down, down
There’s no mercy in my sleep

I just hear the drill an’ hammer
Feel the killin’ heat
Goin’ two miles down to the heart
Of Durban deep
