Nic Jones – Farewell To The Gold chords

Chords:
Left handed
Transpose:
[Verse]
C G Am EmShotover River, your gold it is waning 
F G C GIt's weeks since the color I've seen. 
C G Am EmBut it's no use just sitting and Lady Luck blaming 
F G AmI'll pack up and make the break clean. 
[Chorus]
G C GFarewell to the gold that never I found, 
Am F G     Goodbye to the nuggets that somewhere abound; 
C G Am EmFor it's only when dreaming that I see you gleaming 
 F G C           Down in the dark deep underground. 
[Verse]
C G Am EmIt's nearly two years since I left my old mother 
F G C GFor adventure and gold by the pound. 
C G Am EmWith Jimmy the prospector, he was another, 
F G AmFor the hills of Otago was bound. 
C G Am EmWell we worked the Cardrona's dry valley all over 
F G C GOld Jimmy Williams and me. 
C G Am EmThey were panning good dirt on the winding Shotover 
F G AmSo we drifted down there just to see. 
C G Am EmWe sluiced and we cradled for day after day 
F G C GBarely making enough to get by; 
C G Am Em'Til a terrible flood swept poor Jimmy away 
F G AmDuring six stormy days in July
