lyrics

They struck out West in '49
Along the Ghila River line
The greenhorns with their dreams of fame
They never saw their homes again

Six feet under lies the gold, six feet under lies the gold
Six feet under lies the gold, you're gonna be a rich man

They worked their claims in search of treasure
Found scurvy, cholera and fever
Panhandled and dug with spades
Wound up digging their own graves

Six feet under lies the gold, six feet under lies the gold
Six feet under lies the gold, you're gonna be a rich man
Six feet under lies the gold, six feet under lies the gold
Six feet under lies the gold, or you will be a dead man

If there's pay dirt in your stream
Welcome to the American dream
But if Lady Luck ain't on your side
Then god won't save your crowbait hide

Six feet under lies the gold, six feet under lies the gold
Six feet under lies the gold, you're gonna be a rich man
Six feet under lies the gold, six feet under lies the gold
Six feet under lies the gold, or you will be a dead man

Six feet under lies the gold, six feet under lies the gold
Six feet under lies the gold, you're gonna be a rich man
Six feet under lies the gold, six feet under lies the gold
Six feet under lies the gold, you're gonna be a rich man
Gonna be a rich man, or you’re gonna be a dead man
