Sutter's Mill

 

Songer:Dan Fogelberg

 

In the spring of forty-seven'

So the story' it is told'

Old john sutter went to the mill site

Found a piece of shining gold

Well' he took it to the city

Where the word' like wildfire' spread

And old john sutter soon came to wish he'd

Left that stone in the river bed

For they came like herds of locusts

 

Every woman' child and man

 

In their lumbering conestogas

 

They left their tracks upon the land

 

Some would fail and some would prosper

 

Some would die and some would kill

 

Some would thank the lord for their deliverance

And some would curse john sutter's mill

 

Well' they came from new york city'

And they came from alabam'

 

With their dreams of finding fortunes

In this wild unsettled land

 

Well' some fell prey to hostile arrows

 

As they tried to cross the plains

 

And some were lost in the rocky mountains

 

With their hands froze to the reins

 

Oh

Some would fail and some would prosper

 

Some would die and some would kill

 

Some would thank the lord for their deliverance

 

And some would curse john sutter's mill

 

Well' some pushed on to california

And others stopped to take their rest

And by the spring of eighteen-sixty

They had opened up the west

And then the railroad came behind them

And the land was plowed and tamed'

When old john sutter went to meet his maker'

He'd not one penny to his name

 

Oh

Some would fail and some would prosper

Some would die and some would kill

 

Some would thank the lord for their deliverance

And some would curse john sutter's mill

And some would curse john sutter's mill

 

Some men's thirsts are never filled
