Deep In The Motherlode Lyrics - Genesis
Review The Song (2)
Get out of the way fat man. You got something to do
Go fill up your hands till they're shining up at you.
You gotta get out while there's gold in the air
It's falling like water, coming down from the hills.
Go West young man
Earn a dollar a day just like your family said.
You're rolling your days right on into the night
The head of the line's going way out of sight.
Go West young man like your family said
All along the wagons
All along the dusty trail.
Seventeen years not over a day
Like children in the wild.
Your mother's milk still wet on your face
And no one to pray for your safe journey home.
Out beyond the desert
Across the mountains by the fall.
Servants who leave their masters house
Are walking all the way.
The golden fields that beckoned you
Are darkened by the years.
Go West Young Man
If you knew then what you know today
You'd be back where you started a happier man
And leave all the glory to those who have remained.
So Go West Young Man
Go West Young Man, like your family said.

Simply and uniquely the best! | Reviewer: Andrew Walker | 5/16/13
I have been a fan of Genesis since the Peter Gabriel days and they are still the best "Story Rock" band ever. Each musician is a special talent that blends into a musical and lyrical odyssey.
My personal favorite is "Robbery, Assault and Battery" but all are uniquely brilliant. "And then there were three" after Steve Hackett, was at first listening, an extreme disapointment! I picked it up as a CD about 12 years ago and I am happy to say it has joined the rest in terms of excellence.
That may be the best way to describe Genesis..."Excellence" and still the best Storytelling Progressive Rock Band these ears have ever heard! Thank-You Genesis for many years of listening pleasure. Andrew Walker
Hidden Gold Nugget | Reviewer: Jimmy Wakefield III | 6/9/12
This is one of those songs that remind us of our early forefathers, that cannot be told any better lyrically than Genesis did. Concerning Gold mining, probably referring to the United States' Gold rush of 1849. The frenetic frenzy of early immigrants is depicted in the trio's ability to touch rock listener's "visual" thinking, while revealing the struggle that these pioneers went through as they were trying to obtain the early "American Dream". This song is from the ninth studio album released in 1978 entitled "And then there were three". This album does contain many more great songs, so if you enjoy Genesis and their efforts over the past? Try and obtain it. God bless you all theat took the time to read my post!
