The Forty-Niners
written by John W. Hilton
performd by Danny Ray Thomas

This is the official song of the Death Valley '49er Organization

VERSE 1

Oh the D Forty-Niners rolled across Death Valley,

and they braved the burning wastes and barren A sand. A7

But the D heat and thirst and danger of Death G Valley,

didn't D dim their golden A dreams of A7 promised D land.

CHORUS:

Forty-G-Niners, Forty-D-Niners,

didn't dim their golden dreams of promised A land. A7

They were D busy trudging down that G dusty road,

For you D blazed a trail to A destiny and D gold.

VERSE 2

Oh they D didn't know that they were making his'try,

as they pushed their tired oxen with the A goad. A7

They D had no time to dream of being G heroes,

they were D busy trudging A down that A7 dusty D road.

CHORUS:

Forty-G-Niners, Forty-D-Niners,

didn't dim their golden dreams of promised A land. A7

They were D busy trudging down that G dusty road,

For you D blazed a trail to A destiny and D gold.

VERSE 3

You're D more than just a mem'ry Forty-Niners,

and your bravery can never all be A told. A7

You will D live within our hearts oh Forty-G-Niners,

for you D blazed a trail to A desti-A7-ny and D gold.

CHORUS:

Forty-G-Niners, Forty-D-Niners,

didn't dim their golden dreams of promised A land. A7

They were D busy trudging down that G dusty road,

For you D blazed a trail to A destiny and D gold.

Forty-Bm-Niners, Forty-A-Niners, Forty-D-Niners.
