Recorded by Jim Reeves
Written by Danny Dill
[G]Two partners went in search of gold as friendly as could be
[Em]One was young and [G]one was old and the gay young fool was [Em]me
Since [A7]neither one could [G]write his name we [A7]swore upon our [D7]souls
To [G]share the wealth and then shook [C]hands the [G]hands that [D7]dug for [G]gold
[G]The summer days were gone at last and winter nights grew cold
[Em]The snow had [G]trapped us in the pass when we finally found the [Em]gold
We [A7]took our fortune [G]to the shack to [A7]wait the winter [D7]through
But the food [G]ran low so I killed my [C]friend what [G]else was [D7]there to [G]do
[G]I threw his body just outside into the bitter cold
[Em]Somehow I had to [G]stay alive I now had all the [Em]gold
But the [A7]howling wind [G]just seemed to say [A7]you have killed a [D7]man
And you’ll [G]never get to spend the [C]gold with the [G]blood [D7]upon your [G]hands
[G]The cabin’s covered now with snow and shelves of food are bare
[Em]Satan’s waitin’ [G]for me now and I’m too cold to [Em]care
Is [A7]that the devil [G]at the door [A7]comin’ for my [D7]soul
Or is it [G]just the [C]old man a [G]lookin’ [D7]for his [G]gold
