Lyrics of Sutter's Mill

In the spring of forty-seven so the story it is told
Old John Sutter went to the mill site
And found a piece of shining gold
Well he took it to the city
Where the word like wild fire spread
And old John Sutter soon came to wish he'd
Left that stone in the river bed
Well they came like herds of locusts every woman child and man
In their lumbering Conestogas they left their tracks upon the land
Some would fail and some would prosper
Some would die and some would kill
Some would thank the Lord for their deliverance
And some would curse
John Sutter's mill
Well they came from New York city and they came from Alabam'
With their dreams of finding fortunes in this wild unsettled land
Well some fell prey to hostile arrows as they tried to cross the plains
Some were lost in the rocky mountains
With their hands froze to the reins
Oh some would fail and some would prosper
Some would die and some would kill
Some would thank the Lord for their deliverance
And some would curse
John Sutter's mill
Some pushed on to California and others stopped to take their rest
And by the spring of eighteen-sixty they had opened up the west
Then the railroad came behind them
And the land was plowed and tamed
When old John Sutter went to meet his maker he'd not one penny to his name
Oh some would fail and some would prosper
Some would die and some would kill
Some would thank the Lord for their deliverance
And some would curse
John Sutter's mill
And some would curse
John Sutter's Mill
And some men's purse are never filled
