The Gold Rush Is Over
Recorded by Hank Snow  written by Cindy Walker

Oh the gold rush is over so honey bye-bye
C                                      G   
Stake out your claim now on some other guy
I've wined you and dined you till my money is gone
        G                         D7            G  
But the gold rush is over and the bum's rush is on

Now when I had the money honey things were just fine
C                               G    
You spent my money like I was a mine
But now you mistreat me 'cause my money is gone
        G                    D7           G  
So gold digging Mama you can start moving on

You shoveled out the sweet talk when the pay dirt was big
C                                          G
But now all you shovel out is just a dirty dig
Well stop digging honey 'cause you're wasting your time
         G                     D7         G   
This old gravy train is at the end of the line

Repeat #1

You've been out prospecting all around on the side
C                                      G
But this old mule now has had his last ride
So start walking woman 'cause your grubstake is gone
    G                         D7            G
The gold rush is over and the bum's rush is on

Repeat #1
