Print Version


She was drivin' across Nevada
When her Chevrolet broke down
Out in the middle of the dessert
Miles from the nearest town
She spied this little ole' rundown shack
Sittin' on the side of the hill
On the porch was a man and above his head
Was a sign that said The Golden Lil
He was leather tanned and bearded
She couldn't tell just how old
He said come on in, my name's Jake
These dessert nights get cold
He laid out supper and he watched her close
And she ate by the coal oil light
And he said, girl, I bet ya don't know it
But you're sittin' on a gold mine

Girl, you're sittin' on a gold mine
No tellin' what it's worth
Some folks gets to be mighty well off
From just a little dirt
He said, love and gold are the only two things
That can buy a better way of life
And ya may not know it but, girl
You're sittin' on a gold mine

It was two weeks later when a Greyhound bus
Dropped off the needed parts
And in that short time she'd weaved he way
Into the old man's heart
They laughed and joked while they fixed the car
And she packed up for L.A.
And as she drove away from the Golden Lil
She heard old Jake say

Girl, you're sittin' on a gold mine
No tellin' what it's worth
Some folks gets to be mighty well off
From just a little dirt
He said, love and gold are the only two things
That can buy a better way of life
And ya may not know it but, girl
You're sittin' on a gold mine

She got a letter from a lawyer in Vegas
A week ago today
Sayin' old Jake struck the mother lode
Just before he passed away
There was a key to a safety deposit box
And the deed to the Golden Lil
And a note from Jake thankin' her
For the two weeks on the hill

And it said, girl, you're sittin' on a gold mine
No tellin' what it's worth
Some folks gets to be mighty well off
From just a little dirt
He said, love and gold are the only two things
That can buy a better way of life
And ya may not know it but, girl
You're sittin' on a gold mine

It said, you're sittin' on a gold mine
No tellin' what it's worth
Some folks gets to be mighty well off
From just a little dirt
He said, love and gold are the only two things
That can buy a better way of life
And ya may not know it but, girl
You're sittin' on a gold mine
