Nic Jones – Farewell To The Gold chords
[Verse]C G Am EmShotover River, your gold it is waningF G C GIt's weeks since the color I've seen.C G Am EmBut it's no use just sitting and Lady Luck blamingF 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 gleamingF G C Down in the dark deep underground.[Verse]C G Am EmIt's nearly two years since I left my old motherF 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 overF G C GOld Jimmy Williams and me.C G Am EmThey were panning good dirt on the winding ShotoverF G AmSo we drifted down there just to see.C G Am EmWe sluiced and we cradled for day after dayF G C GBarely making enough to get by;C G Am Em'Til a terrible flood swept poor Jimmy awayF G AmDuring six stormy days in July
