That clicky thing doesn't seem to work. Go to Cowpie via Mudcat links and put 'There's a goldmine in the sky' in the 'Search song corral'.

Cheers, Stewie.

THERE'S A GOLD MINE IN THE SKY
Recorded by Gene Autry
Written by Nick Kenny and Charles Kenny

[D] There's a Gold mine in the sky, [D7] far a-[G] way
We will [D] find it, you and I, some sweet [A] day
There'll be [D] Clover just for you, [D7] down the [G] line
Where the [D] skies are always [A] Blue, [A7] pal of [D] mine.

Take your [G] time, old mule, I know you're growin' [D] lame
But you'll pasture [D7] in the stars
[E] When we [E7] strike that [A] claim
And we'll [D] sit up there and watch [D7] the world roll [G] by
When we [D] find that long lost [A] Gold mine in the [D] sky.

Far a-[G] way, far a-[D] way
We will find that [D7] long lost Gold [E] mine some sweet [A] day
And we'll [D] say hello to friends [D7] who said good-[G] bye
When we [D] find that long lost [A] Gold mine in the [G] sky.

TAG: Far away (far away), far away (far away), in the sky.

Joe,
Thanks for posting the rest of the song. I'd forgotten the part about saying hello to friends who've said goodbye!

(BTW, Joe, welcome back! Hope you had a great honeymoon!)

MMario,
Yes, I "have" the tune. I could sing it into Voice Mail if nothing else. I don't know how to do MIDI yet, but I can transcribe it into sheet music using a freeware program called "Finale Notepad." You can download the freeware program by going to CodaMusic. If no one else posts a MIDI right away, I can fax Joe or Max a copy of the sheet music. Or is there a Voice Mailbox for Mudcat?

Will do, MMario, as soon as Finale Notepad gets over it's newly-acquired habit of freezing my computer.

Glad you got it, MMario. I'll leave it in your hands to get it into the "missing tunes" thread, so I won't send it to Joe O. and Max.

Louie, thanks for the date info.

My old Mum told me that someone sang "There's a Gold Mine in the Sky" at a recruiting rally in 1940 and all the Scots joined the Air Force.

From: Peace

CROSS-COUNTRY WALTZ

--©1976 Rod MacDonald, Blue Flute Music (ASCAP)

There's an old barn outside on the far edge of town
where the ladies keep dancing so fine
their smiles touch their ears,
their dresses the ground
they got all their men in a line
and I thought for a second how fine it would be
to get dancing and feeling so free
take a few turns and get me a girl
and bring one of those smiles home with me.

But it just looked too easy
just too easy to be right
and I'm out on the road walking alone
one step ahead of the frost
and your baby ain't no baby anymore
he's doing the cross country waltz.

I had a lover, she walked through my dreams
til one day she drifted away
and I got me a letter when some months had gone by
saying "Come back, I'll do what you say,"
but in a city I found a new wheel spinning round
like a carnival half of the time
and though I'm walking alone now and counting my dimes
I think I'll just let her go by.

I got me a letter yesterday from home, saying
"How long you think you'll be gone?"
as I looked at the sun, it was warming my hands
that letter fell down on the ground
'cause there's riverboats and drifters and a silvery moon
and the people they all ask your name
and if you never left home you'd never have to go back,
but once you go back you can't stay.

Sanctuary
©1986 Rod MacDonald, Blue Flute Music (ASCAP)

There are diamonds; there is gold way up there
We will find it you and I enough to share
Then we'll sit up there and watch the clouds roll by
When we find that long lost goldmibne int he sky

Far away far away
We will find it you and I some sweet day
And we'll sit up there and watch the clouds go by
When we find that long lost goldmine in the sky

as I remember it from Helen Schneyer's recording...

Pat Boone also recorded this as the "B" side to "Remember your Mine"
I still have the record somewhere. A great song and interesting to learn that its quite old & was recorded by Gene Autrey
Thanks

Louie, the publication date I have for this song is 1938. But that may be because it was featured in a Gene Autry movie of the same title in in '38. I don't doubt that the Kenny brothers actually wrote it a year earlier.

Thanks for the extra lyrics, Sins.
