The Tenth Groanin' Jock Lyrical Challenge

Only one of the tracks in the Ninth Groanin' Jock Lyrical Challenge was correctly spotted, Mike from Auld Reekie Rants spotting Mystery Train by Elvis Presley (which Rab pointed out was actually a Little Junior Parker song).

Answers to the ninth challenge are now in the comments on that post.

Here are this week's mystery lyrics. To play, simply identify the songs from the lines given. No Googling.

1: No one else gets high, and I can't sleep cause I got nothing.

2: Oh come all you young fellers so young and so fine, seek not your fortune in a dark dreary mine.

3: I don't believe in everything I see, y'know I'm blind so why d'you disagree?

4: You're workin in bars, ridin in cars, never gonna give it for free.

5: Now courage my boy when they look you in the eye, try not to look too scummy.

... "Dark as a Dungeon" was a Merle Travis song, I thought....

It may well be Eric, but the version on the Magic Tune Box is Johnny Cash's version from Live At Folsom Prison.
