Folks around here, they're hungry for gold. They dream about it in their sleep. 
Couple of half-asses like us? We might just have a chance. 
Dawson City. Paris of the north. 
A fair number of men are gonna walk out of here rich.  
But only a handful are gonna be remembered.  
The second we staked our claim we were marked men.  
Leavin' with the gold's the hard part.  
Leaving with your soul is the hard part.  
Forgive me Father, for I have sinned. 
Are you afraid of dyin'? 
You shoulda shot me. 
Fortune's a bitch. 
You call this to all of us sooner or later. 
You really think your Lord is gonna protect you? 
He's trying to find a piece of something that's mine. 
(Lyrics) Your own personal Jesus 
Someone to hear your prayers 
Someone who cares 
Reach out touch 
Reach out and touch faith
