Bodie


In the hills a hundred miles south of Reno
Where the sage sighs and moans when the wind blows
There's a town that I hear tell
was founded in the depths of hell
And this Godforsaken place's name is Bodie

There is gold beneath the hills around this city
And the man who finds his share is sitting pretty
But if her winter doesn't kill
Then her bad men surely will
That's the way it's bound to end up there in Bodie

I see riches fit for kings in my dreams now
But I'm doomed to pay the price is how  it seems now
Oh it's much too late to pray
For I am on my way
Goodbye God, I am going to Bodie

Through the dark and dusty streets they go walking
If you listen closely you can hear them talking
It's a low and dreadful sound
And it's heard all over town
It's the ghosts of all the men who died in Bodie

So it's fare thee well my darling, how  I love you
And I swear by all the stars that are above you
If I make it back again
I will marry you and then
Never more to set a foot inside of Bodie

I see riches fit for kings in my dreams now
But I'm doomed to pay the price is how  it seems now
Oh it's much too late to pray
For I am on my way
Goodbye God, I am going to Bodie
