written & performed
by Danny Ray Thomas
 

VERSE 1

He was C born in the year, of F Eighteen Eighty C One.
Springfield Illinois is the
D7 place, where he cum' G7 from.
His
F givin' name was Charles, Charles C Ferge we've been told.
And he cum' to this here mountain, just to
G7 find some Panamint C Gold.

CHORUS 1:

But his F " Givin' " didn't last him long, C out here in these parts.
'Cause the
Am mountain had it's C own way, of G tellin' men a-G7-part.
For
F he was tall and thin, and C didn't quite fit Am in.
So the
F handle he wound C up with was, G7 Seldom Seen C Slim.

VERSE 2

Now C Seldom Seen Slim, was a F poet of C sorts.
And one day to us, his
D7 story he did G7 quote.
He
F told us just the way, his C life was to unfold.
Way up at Wildrose Station, in
G7 quite poetic C prose.

CHORUS 2:

Go up F high in those Panamints, that's C just what I've been told.
For
Am all along those C Panamints, there's G plenty of hidden G7 gold.
When I
F first cum' to those Panamints, they C stood so high and Am bold.
So I
F went up in those C Panamints, and G7 found some hidden C gold.

VERSE 3

Now C Slim he passed away, in the F year of Sixty-C-Eight.
They laid him out to rest, with that
D7 mountain at his G7 feet.
In that
F minin' town of Ballarat, right C at that Panamint base.
So he could walk eternity, in that
G7 mountain C range.

CHORUS 2:

Go up F high in those Panamints, that's C just what I've been told.
For
Am all along those C Panamints, there's G plenty of hidden G7 gold.
When I
F first cum' to those Panamints, they C stood so high and Am bold.
So I
F went up in those C Panamints, and G7 found some hidden C gold.

I F panned the rock and then I sold,
Now
G that's my story-----of Panamint C Gold. Am F G C
