  • One was young and one was old and the gay young fool was me
    Since neighter one could write his name we swore upon our souls
    To share the wealth and then shook hands the hands that dug for gold

    The summer days were gone at last and winter nights grew cold
    The snow had trapped us in the pass when we finally find the gold
    We took our fortune to the shack to wait the winter through
    But the food ran low so I killed my friend what else there was to do

    I threw his body just outside into the bitter cold
    Somehow I had to stay alive I now had all the gold
    But the howling wind just seemed to say you have killed a man
    And you'll never get to spend the gold with the blood upon your hands

    The cabin's covered now with snow and shelves of food are bare
    Satan's waitin' for me now and I'm too cold to care
    Is that the devil at the door coming for my soul
    Or is it just the old man a looking for his gold
