I once was so happy, so carefree and gay
And I had a sweet lovin' wife
Till I caught the fever that's wrackin' my soul
And rapidly ruinin' my life
At first just a pastime, it soon came to be
A full-fledged obsession with me
So I sold all I own, left my wife all alone
And a rover I set out to be

Uranium blues, uranium blues
Have got me in deep misery
They've cost me my wife, made a wreck of my life
And an unhappy end I foresee

I've traveled this country from Bisbee to Butte
And I searched every place in between
Each mile of the whole Colorado plateau
Not a trace of good ore have I seen
My counter won't count and my Jeep is broke down
And my grubstake is sure runnin' low
I'm heartsick and weary, I want to go home
But this madness just won't let me go

Uranium blues, uranium blues
Have got me in deep misery
They've cost me my wife, made a wreck of my life
And an unhappy end I foresee

My wife has divorced me, with cruelty I'm charged
And I guess I will have to agree
But only the good Lord Himself knows the pain
That these blues have been causin' to me
Although I'll keep seekin' the rainbow's bright end
In my heart I will faithfully pray
That no other mortal will be so unwise
And follow my unhappy way

Uranium blues, uranium blues
Have got me in deep misery
They've cost me my wife, made a wreck of my life
And an unhappy end I foresee
