got no one to blame you see
fever got a hold of me
went out west to strike some gold

the road was long, the trail was hard
slept out underneath the stars
i made creede before the snow

i know there’s gold up in the hills
gonna turn them into dollar bills
or jacob randall carter ain’t my name

in time the only thing i owned
was a worn out pick and a back that’s bowed
and an empty hole they call a mine

i packed it up and sold the rights
headed out to telluride
picked up work on that rail line

the days were long, the nights were cold
that rail was shipping out that gold
soon enough they’re all gonna know my name

my buddy ray helped build the pass
dynamite from his own stash
buried deep between the ties

we partnered up and ran the lines
two vantage points above the pines
primed that cap and bid our time

when that last train comes around the bend
it will be too late to comprehend
i’ll be there to gather what remains

sheriff boyd caught wind of me
wrangled up some deputies
they lit out the break of day

i can’t recall the day too well
put me here in this dark cell
never made my getaway

i really don’t know what went wrong
but that fever’s like a siren song
sunday morning is my hanging day

when they hang me from that white oak tree,
i hope the town shows up to see
every single one’s gonna know my name
every single one’s gonna know my name
