Deep in the Motherlode


Deep In The Motherlode (2007 Digital Remaster) - Genesis (創世紀)


Get out of the way fat man you got something to do


Go fill up your hands till theyre shining up at you


You gotta get out while theres gold in the air


Its falling like water coming down from the hills


Go west young man


Earn a dollar a day just like your family said


Youre rolling your days right on into the night


The head of the lines going way out of sight


Go west young man like your family said


All along the wagons


All along the dusty trail


Seventeen years not over a day


Like children in the wild


Your mothers milk still wet on your face


And no one to pray for your safe journey home


Out beyond the desert


Across the mountains by the fall


Servants who leave their masters house


Are walking all the way


The golden fields that beckoned you


Are darkened by the years


Go west young man


If you knew then what you know today


Youd be back where you started a happier man


And leave all the glory to those who have remained


So go west young man


Go west young man like your family said
