"All that glitters sure 'aint gold,"
said Dan the assay man.
"Oh yeah it is," said Tombstone Pete,
ten nuggets in his pan.
"That claim is mine," growled Badlands Bill,
"'cause I just killed a man right dead.
So you best be handin' me that gold
or else get filled with lead."
"Well I knew a guy," said Tombstone Pete,
"Al Kemmy was his name,
and he tried for years to find some gold,
but with consequence the same."
"But let me tell you Bill - before you draw
that sixgun by your side,
Al found, then passed the secret on,
just before he upped and died."
"So if you shoot me full of lead,
it won't make no mind to me,
'Cause I'll turn them bullets into gold
and be as rich as rich can be!
