    The boom time it is over
    A ghost town is all that's left here
    The gold rush it is over
    And depression days draw near

    Tonight after sundown
    I'm going to pack my case
    I leave without a sound
    Disappear without a trace

    I'm going southbound

    Drifting like a drover
    Chasing my career
    From the ships docked in the harbour
    New horizons will appear

    Tumbling with the tumbleweed
    Down the open road
    Taking only what I need
    Before my head explodes

    I'm going southbound

    Hey, you're not getting any younger
    The wild west has already been won
    Northern lights are growing colder
    And the old eastern ways are gone

    So tonight after sundown
    You must go from this place
    Without a tear, without a frown
    Disappear without a trace
