Stars – Jupiter Creek lyrics

The trees were shakin as the rain came down
I been walkin for days seems like town after town
Well I heard there was gold down
Near old Jupiter Creek
Now Darlin' I swear to God there's
A piece there for me

Well l bought me a claim, had to
Make it my home
To make ends meet 1 sold everything
That I owned
And I got rne a partner 'oi Jim was his name
From dawn to dusk we worked that hole
Each day was the same

And there's gold in the high country
I've seen it shine with m}' own eyes
I know it's there just waitin for me
And it won't he long till I'll be
Comin home to you

One morning we struck water
It came in so fast
We were sixty feet down the day
That Jim Drowned
I don't know if 1 can last

The day I sold that claim, it near
Brought me to tears
Though it's still in my blood
It's been near three years
Since I heard there was gold down
Near old Jupiter Creek
Well Darlin I still swear to God
There's a piece there for me


And it won't be long till I'll be comin home to you
