Started in the old south
I brought it to the new west
Sold it for a dry claim
I bought it back the hard way

I've got a mine that's fine
Isn't it the best one yet?
I bought it in '49
I've got a mine that's fine

Heard about your bad fall
I guess it's just the rock's fault
I bet you need some old south
I'll sell it for your gold teeth

I've got a mind that's fine
I swear it's the best one yet
I bought it in '49
I've got a mind that's fine

She was just a moaner
She was never saved
Bruises in my stomach fight
I fed it to my engine

I've got a mind that's fine
I swear it's the best one yet
I bought it in '49
I've got a mine that's fine

I've got a mine that's fine
I've got a mine that's fine
I've got a mine that's fine
I've got a mine that's fine.
