The Lyrics

Split in the spring for California
For some easy sievin'
Lured on a race around the Horn by lore
Of life lucrativin'

Be a siever on the Placer River
Hence I'm stakin' my claim at this art

Somewhere a-stream's my golden lode
I should try to mine it
No time to play, want a shiny node
I will fort-y nine it

Easy pannin' in my Levi denims
Differ-at-ing rocks base to discard

Shakin', sploshin'
Wasting my whole life away?
Drinking, stinking
Unwashed for five months, I'd say
Doin' easy sievin'

Bummin' along this hopeful road
Where's my El Dorado?
Pray that I'll last this survival mode
I'll soon bank at Wells Fargo!

Easy sievin' soon I'll be high livin'
Weeks I've shaken the sluice every night
Easy siever, on the Placer River
Oooops! Mistaken - this mess is pyrite...!

I liked the reference to "pyrite" --- "fool's gold" --- right at the end!
