CHORUS
Oh! the gold rush is over so honey bye-bye
Stake out your claim now on some other guy
I've wined you and dined you till my money is gone
But the gold rush is over and the bum's rush is on.

Now when I had the money honey, things were just fine
You spent my money like I was a mine
But now you mistreat me 'cause my money is gone
So gold-diggin' Mama, you can start moving' on.

You shoveled out the sweet talk when the pay dirt was big
But now all you shovel out is just a dirty dig
Well, stop digging honey 'cause you're wasting your time
This old gravy train is at the end of the line.

CHORUS

You've been out prospecting all around on the side
But this old mule now, has had his last ride
So start walkin' woman 'cause your grubstake is gone
The gold rush is over and the bum's rush is on.

CHORUS
