  • We loaded rifles with our ragged britches on
    We built the wagons, we head to California
    I’ve got a lot to say, so you must sit and take it all

    Your father looked at me like a thing that don’t belong
    Some sorry sailor, no fortunes for his daughter
    I’ll take your words with me, I’ll cross the Rockies in the fall
    To win my baby, find fortunes fit to take you home

    Blood washes glitter from stone
    Mad forces, bodies and bone
    Blood washes glitter from stone

    Four years and seven days since I left what was home
    Return to find you cavortin’ with another
    He bent a knee for you, bought you a ring of solid gold
    That vein my fate pursued, I could have made five hundred more

    You’re breaking my patience
    You’re breaking my patience
    You’re breaking my patience down
    Patience down
    Patience down
    Breaking down
