Elton Britt – Uranium Fever lyrics

[Verse 1]
Well I don't know but I've been told
Uranium ore is worth more than gold
I sold my Cad' bought me a Jeep
I got that bug and I can't sleep.

[Chorus]
Uranium fever has done and got me down
Uranium fever it's spreadin' all around
With a Geiger counter in my hand
(I'ma going out to stake me some government land)
Uranium fever has done and got me down

[Verse 2]
Well I had a talk with the AEC
And they brought out some maps that look good to me
And one showed me a spot that he said he knowed
So I straddled my Jeep and headed down the road
I reckon I drove about a hundred miles
Down a bumpy road out through the wiles
When all of a sudden I bounced to a stop
At the foot of a mountain didn't have no top

[Chorus]
Uranium fever has done and got me down
Uranium fever it's spreadin' all around
With a Geiger counter in my hand
(I'ma going out to stake me some government land)
Uranium fever has done and got me down

[Verse 3]
Well I took my Geiger and I started to climb
Right up to the top where I thought I'd find
A hunk of rock that'd make it click
Just like I'd read about Vernon Pick
On the second day I made the top
And I'm telling you Steve I was ready to stop
The only clicking that I heard that day
Was the bones in my back that'd gone astray

[Chorus]
Uranium fever has done and got me down
Uranium fever it's spreadin' all around
With a Geiger counter in my hand
(I'ma going out to stake me some government land)
Uranium fever has done and got me down

[Verse 4]
Well you pack up your things you head out again
To some unknown spot where nobodies been
You reach the spot where your fortune lies
You find it's been staked by seventeen other guys
Well I ain't kiddin' I ain't gonna quit
That bugs done caught me and I've been bit
So with a Geiger counter and a pick in my hand
I'll keep right on staking that government land


[Chorus]
Uranium fever has done and got me down
Uranium fever it's spreadin' all around
With a Geiger counter in my hand
(I'ma going out to stake me some government land)
Uranium fever has done and got me down
