  Took my fam'ly away from my? Carolina home?  Had dreams about the West and?

|C                |Em                   |C                    |
? started to roam?  Six long months on a dust? covered trail?

|Em                                   |C                              |

  We were diggin' and siftin'?  from five to five?  sellin' everything we found?

 just to stay alive?  Gold flowed free like the whiskey in the bars?

|Em                                    |C                               |
  Sinnin' was the big thing, Lord, and?  Satan was his star? And there's?

|Em                         |C               |
  Dance hall girls were the?  evenin' treat?

|Em                                     |C                      |
   Empty cartridges and blood? lines the gutters of the street?

  she couldn't save?  Shot down in cold blood by a gun that carried fame?

|Em                              |C                            |
  all for a useless and no good,?  worthless claim? And there's?
