The Lure of Gold by Scott Axel
It is hard to believe
I am one of the three known survivors
Of the hard way

It is hard to believe
What men would do
For a chance at a lucky strike

It is hard to believe
We camped that winter
Hunting, trapping, and prospecting

Kind of disappointing
Worried about the price of gold dropping
Started off alone
Not being used to river travel
Terrific snow slide
It is hard to believe

The lure of gold
