Uranium Fever: Elton Britt [1955]

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
