Oil and Gold

There was a farmer
By the name of Jim Laramie
Who owned a small farm
With his loving wife Sammy

He was one cent away
From losing his farm
But all that changed one day
When he was out in his garden

His shovel hit something very hard; 
It made a loud clanging sound
He dug up with his bare hands
What he had dug out from beneath the ground

Was a piece of shiny gold!
He could not believe what he had found
But that was not all
Soon he heard a low rumbling sound

Oil erupted from beneath his feet!
His wife witnessed the whole thing
As she sat in her seat
From the front porch of the house

They soon sold the farm
To the big oil and mining companies
And were paid $10,000,000
Now they are both knee deep

In money, jewelry, and cars
Now they are as famous
As any of the Hollywood movie stars
All because of oil and gold
