DI'm awful sad to say GThat my partner died last week DAnd I'm so shook up inside, GI can barely even spAeak, DI don't know how he died GIt all came as such a shGock...... But Di suspect he started feeling ill AWhen i hit him with a roDck DWe where partners in a claim GUp in gold hill Idaho, DAnd we'd yet to find something GGolden except the yAellow snow,(first song) DMy partner joe god bless his Gsoul HAad hit the mother loaDd D"Well I'll use my gold" said my partner Joe GTo get my education DAnd if any is left when I am through GI'll give it to sick chiAldren DWell i thought that Joe was crazy GFor to hear him talk like thGat..... DSo i decided it was best for joe AIf he took a little nDap DSo i picked up a big old piece of gold, GAnd I hit joe on the head, DAnd joe shut his weary eyes, GAnd lay down on the rocky bAed, D"you take some rest my faithful friend" GSaid i as joe lay down DAnd let me load this wagon GWith the gold that you have foAund. So like the true friend that i was I loaded up the ore While my partner joe lay silently sleeping on the floor And when the gold was loaded And i was set to get to town..... I tried to wake my sleepy friend But he refused to come around. "Well if that don't wake you up, I know something that just might" Said I as i lit up A few sticks of dynamite, I settle down and waited, For them to wake Joe from his dream.... But alas i put the sticks to close and Joe blew to smithereens, And if Joes luck wasnt bad enough He lay close toe the mine, And when the dynamite went off, he was covered by mountain slime, Alas said I "all evidence Is gone of poor Joe's life.... All that left is a ton of gold And a little less dynamite, So now Joe rests in pieces, And i on a water bed, But it doesnt bother me a bit, That my partner joe is dead, For while some people might say That miner got the shaft.....(first song) I'm the only one that knows That Old Joe had a blast Hope it sounds ok!
