Gibbonsville Gold
Hank Williams, Jr.

Intro.:  | (Bm) (A) | (D) ---

My name is Bill (Bm)Harlan. I'm a God fearin' (D)man
From the lost rebel (Bm)army, a Tennessee Calvary man(A)
From Shilo to (G)Nashville we made our last (D)stand
When the battles were (Bm)over, everythin' (A)we had was gone with the (D)wind

But I still had my (Bm)family and a hope and a (D)dream
And I heard of gold (Bm)fever and the Rocky Mountain (A)streams
So we took what we (G)had and some gold diggin' (D)gear
And we headed for a (Bm)new life (A) on the Northwest fron-(D)tier

Montana Terri-(Bm)tory where the winters are (D)cold
The lands full of (Bm)game and the creeks are full of (A)gold
Just west of the (G)mountains is a town they call Gibbons-(D)ville
You can sure get gold (Bm)fever, you can damn sure get (A)killed
But I staked my (G)claims, I was rarin' to (D)go
I've made up my (Bm)mind and I set out to (A)find the Gibbonsville (D)gold

(Chorus)
Oh, you find just a (G)little, just enough to get (D)by
Aww, you dig and you (A)dig, and you start wonderin' (D)why
There's a whole lot more (G)down there, I don't have to be (D)told
I've made up my (Bm)mind and I'm gonna (A)find that Gibbonsville (D)gold

Every morning at (Bm)daylight with a pick and a (D)pan
Keep an eye out for the (Bm)blackfeet. Keep a rifle near (A)hand
Back shooters and (G)grizzlies, better stay alert all the (D)time
'Cause the only law (Bm)here in this wild (A)country is the gun and the (D)knife

Inst.:  | (Bm) (A) | (D) ---

In the year of our (Bm)Lord, eighteen sixty-(D)nine
I lost my dear (Bm)son to a cave-in at the (A)mine
Yes I know he's (G)gone please God rest his (D)soul
So many have (Bm)died trying to (A)find this damned Gibbonsville (D)gold

(Chorus)
Yeah, you find just a (G)little, just enough to get (D)by
Aww, you dig and you (A)dig, and you start wonderin' (D)why
Then someone finds a (G)nugget, just as big as your (D)thumb
And we all go hard (A)at it from sun until (D)sun
Yeah I got to (G)find it, that main mother (D)load
I've made up my (Bm)mind and I swear to (A)find that Gibbonsville (D)gold

(Tag)
There's a whole lot more (G)down there, my share of that main mother (D)load
I've made up my (Bm)mind and I swear to (A)find the Gibbonsville (D)gold --- fade
