OPENER   

(She got the gold mine, I got the...)
Sides face grand square
Well I guess it was back in '63 when my cookin' got the better of me
So I asked this little girl I was goin' with to be my wife
Well she said she would, so I said "I do", but I would of said I wouldn't
If I had just knew how saying "I do" was gonna screw up the rest of my life

Circle to the left
She got the gold mine, I got the shaft
Allemande left the corner, swing the partner, promenade
Well it all sounds sorta funny, but it hurts too much to laugh
She got the gold mine, I got the shaft


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads square thru 4 hands
Dosado corner, swing thru
Spin the top, right & left thru
Send her back flutter wheel, sweep 1/4 more
Swing the corner, promenade


MIDDLE BREAK   

(She got the gold mine, I got the...)
Sides face grand square
Well it wasn't too long till the lust all died, I admit I wasn't too surprised
When I came home and found my suitcase setting out in the front porch
Well I tried to get in, she changed the lock, then I found a note on the mailbox
It said "So long, turkey, my attorney will be in touch"
I decided to give her her share...

Circle to the left
She got the gold mine, I got the shaft
Allemande left the corner, swing the partner, promenade
Well it all sounds sorta funny, but it hurts too much to laugh
She got the gold mine, I got the shaft


CLOSER   

(She got the gold mine, I got the...)
Sides face grand square
They gave her the color television set, the house, the kids and both cars
I'm tellin' you, son, they have made a mistake; it all adds up to more than this cowboy makes
While she's livin' like a queen on alimony, I'm workin' two shifts, eatin' bologna
I'm totin' food stamps, get it, Judge, you hillbilly?

Circle to the left
She got the gold mine, I got the shaft
Allemande left the corner, swing the partner, promenade
Well it all sounds sorta funny, but it hurts too much to laugh
She got the gold mine, I got the shaft

She Got the Goldmine (I Got the Shaft) Lyrics ID: 1266

Well, I guess it was back in '63
When eatin' my cookin' got the better of me
So I asked this little girl I was goin' with to be my wife
Well, she said she would
So I said, 'I do'
But I'da said, 'I wouldn't'
If I'da just knew how sayin' 'I do'
Was gonna screw up all o' my life

Well, the first few years weren't all that bad
I'll never forget the good times we had
'Cause I'm reminded every month when I send her the child support
Well, it wasn't too long til the lust all died
And I'll admit I wasn't too surprised
The day I came home and found my suitcase sittin' out on the porch
Well, I tried to get in, she changed the lock
Then I found this note taped on the mailbox that said
'Goodbye, turkey
My attorney will be in touch'
So I decided right then and there
I was gonna do what's right
Give 'er her fair share
But, brother, I didn't know her share was gonna be that much

She got the goldmine (She got the goldmine)
I got the shaft (I got the shaft)
They split it right down the middle
And then they give her the better half
Well, it all sounds sorta funny
But it hurts too much to laugh
She got the goldmine, I got the shaft

Now listen up
You ain't heard nothin' yet
Why, they give 'er the color televison set
Then they give 'er the house, the kids and both of the cars
See
Well, then they started talkin' about child support, alimony
And the costs to the court
Didn't take me long to figure out how far in the toilet I was
I'm tellin' ya, they have made a mistake
'Cause it adds up to more than this cowboy makes
Besides, everythin' I ever had worth takin' they've already took
While she's livin' like a queen on alimony
I'm workin' two shifts, eatin' baloney
Askin' myself, 'Why didn't you just learn how to cook?'

They give her the goldmine (She got the goldmine)
They give me the shaft (I got the shaft)
They said they'd splittin' it all down the middle
But she got the better half
Well, it all sounds mighty funny
But it hurts too much to laugh
She got the goldmine, I got the shaft

Well, she got the goldmine (She got the goldmine)
I got the shaft (I got the shaft)
They split it all down the middle
And then they give her the better half
Well, I guess it all sounds funny
(Ooh, ooh, ha ha ha)
But it hurts too much to laugh
She got the goldmine, I got the shaft

Heh, heh
Hey, Jimmy, I got the shaft

But I don't have to worry about totin' a billfold anymore
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha
I let my wife tote it
I'm gonna be carryin' food stamps
You get it, judge?
I'm gonna be indebted
That's my money
Huh...?
Contempt of court?
What do you mean I'm in contempt of court?!!?

Lyrics by Jerry Reed.
