A The Grave of Gold Mountain.

"Legend been told,
'long as men been countin'
'bout many a fool.

Comin' down to gold mountain.

Diggin' up coal,
gems, ore and oil fountains,
'yes, many a spoil.

Hidin' down in the mountain.

Dynamite blasts,
picks and hammers poundin'
tunnels and shafts.

Deep down into the mountain.

Churches and roads,
many a toll,  sproutin'
too great is the load.

Put down upon the mountain.

On an' on it go'
worry an' risk "unfounded"
but warnin's bellow.

Out down o'er the mountains

Mine timbers crack,
rails shiftin' , men shoutin'
total collapse.

Devil's come down to the mountain.

Peaks, crests gave way
bells rang, sirens soundin'
but no one escapes.

The grave of gold mountain."
