Neil Young - After The Gold Rush/Heart of Gold - Live

WEDNESDAY CLUB

GOLD IN MY POCKET
GOLD HE SCREAMED!

 
NEIL YOUNG - After The Goldrush (live)
 
Weird, I woke up one morning thinking about the Gold Rush and kept thinking about it all day. A quick look at Wikipedia and I came up with this.

I wonder what Wordsworth and Rabbie did before Wikipedia?.  Eat your heart out Neil Young!


MOTHER LODE 

Gold he screamed 
It's gold I've found
Stutter's Mill in California 
news went fast from West to East
across both the greatest oceans

Chorus
300,000 came to Stutter's Mill
many came in covered wagons
came by ship, on foot or rode
they shared their biggest dream
to find that mother lode

The biggest nuggets
that hands can pick
lying there to make you rich
 get back safe and stake your claim 
you will kill or die to get there

 Death and violence
for all these 49ners
1 in 10 didn't make it through 
why were the Indians singled out? 
vigilantes they just took them

makeshift saloons
the girls they came
law is whiskey and the gun
she will comfort your lonely heart
before all your gold she'll steal

300,000 came to Stutter's Mill 
many came in covered wagons 
came by ship, on foot or rode 
they shared their biggest dream
to find that mother lode
