Uranium Fever

Elton Britt


Well, I don't know, but I've been told
Uranium ore's worth more than gold
Sold my cad', I bought me a jeep
I've got that bug and I can't sleep

Uranium fever has done and got me down
Uranium fever is spreadin' all around
With a geiger counter in my hand
I'm a-goin' out to stake me some government land
Uranium fever has done and got me down

Well I had talk with the aec
And they brought out some maps
that looked good to me
And one showed me a spot that he said he knowed
So I straddled my jeep and headed down the road

I reckon I drove about 100 miles
Down a bumpy road out through the wilds
When all of sudden I bounced to a stop
At the foot of a mountain, didn't have no top

Uranium fever has done and got me down
Uranium fever is spreadin' all around
With a geiger counter in my hand
I'm a-goin' out to stake me some government land
Uranium fever has done and got me down

Well I took my geiger and I started to climb
Right up to the top where I thought I'd find
A hunk of rock that would make it click
Just like I'd read about vernon pick

On the second day, I made the top
And I'm tellin' you, steve, I was ready to stop
The only clickin' that I heard that day
Was the bones in my back that had gone astray

Uranium fever has done and got me down
Uranium fever is spreadin' all around
With a geiger counter in my hand
I'm a-goin' out to stake me some government land
Uranium fever has done and got me down

Well, you pack up your things
You head out again
Into some unknown spot where nobody's been
You reach the spot where your fortune lies
You find it's been staked by 17 other guys

Well, I ain't kiddin', I ain't gonna quit
That bug's done caught me and I've been bit
So with a geiger counter and a pick in my hand
I'll keep right on stakin' that government land

Uranium fever has done and got me down
Uranium fever is spreadin' all around
With a geiger counter in my hand
I'm a-goin' out to stake me some government land
Uranium fever has done and got me down
