Lyrics

The Big Bend
~ J. Person 05/27/2010

Out on the Columbia beyond the big Bend
Where the Kirbyville River flows in
We follow the trails of the men that are old
We were moiling and toiling and digging for gold

But nary a nugget did we find
Still we kept on working that placer mine
For tales we had heard with riches at end
Out on the Columbia beyond the Big Bend

The gold is buried in a watery grave
A tribute to men who came and were brave
For they gave up their families their homes and their wives
And digging and panning became their whole lives

The gold is still there The Old Timers know it
If we keep on digging the cleanup will show it
The gold rush is over all the trails they end
Out on the Columbia beyond the Big Bend
