In 1849 I came to Sutter’s Mill and staked my claim
With my shovel, pickax, and pan, I was a forty-niner grand
I swirled my washbowl, swung my pick, my only goal to get rich quick
A frenzied fervor seized my soul, just had to have California gold

Gold, gold, gotta have gold
Gold, gold, get me some gold
Gold, gold, gotta have gold
Gold, gold, get me some gold

I left my home to seek my fame, I traveled in a wagon train...


So many joined this gold rush craze and hundreds came here everyday...

Get me some gold…get me some gold…
