In the spring of forty-seven,
那是1847年的春天
So the story, it is told,
故事便从那时开始
Old john sutter went to the mill site
老约翰萨特在磨房外
Found a piece of shining gold.
发现一块耀眼的黄金
Well, he took it to the city
他带着金子进了城
Where the word, like wildfire, spread.
于是消息如野火一般蔓延

And old john sutter soon came to wish he'd
老萨特很快开始后悔
Left that stone in the river bed.
为何当初不把那金子留在河床上
For they came like herds of locusts
所有的男人女人和孩子
Every woman, child and man
就像蝗虫一般聚齐起来
In their lumbering conestogas
在大篷车笨重的行进中
They left their tracks upon the land.
将车辙留在那原野上
Some would fail and some would prosper
有人无功而返,有人得偿所愿
Some would die and some would kill
有人长眠异乡,有人图财害命
Some would thank the lord for their deliverance
还有人感谢上帝赐予他解脱
And some would curse john sutter's mill.
也有人会诅咒老约翰的磨房
Well, they came from new york city,
他们有人来自不夜城
And they came from alabam'
也有人来自阿拉巴马
With their dreams of finding fortunes
他们带着自己的发财梦
In this wild unsettled land.
踏入这片荒蛮之地
Well, some fell prey to hostile arrows
有人在穿越平原时
As they tried to cross the plains.
命丧在弓矢之下
And some were lost in the rocky mountains
还有人永远迷失在落基山脉中
With their hands froze to the reins.
身体冻僵而死
Some would fail and some would prosper
有人无功而返,有人得偿所愿
Some would die and some would kill
有人长眠异乡,有人图财害命
Some would thank the lord for their deliverance
还有人感谢上帝赐予他解脱
And some would curse john sutter's mill.
也有人会诅咒老约翰的磨房
Well, some pushed on to california
一些人决定向加州推进
And others stopped to take their rest.
一些人停下休养生息
And by the spring of eighteen-sixty
于是在1860年的春天
They had opened up the west.
他们终于征服了西部
And then the railroad came behind them
铁路紧随其后
And the land was plowed and tamed,
曾经的荒蛮之地终于被人们征服
When old john sutter went to meet his maker,
而老约翰离开人世时
He'd not one penny to his name.
自己却一文不名
Some would fail and some would prosper
有人无功而返,有人得偿所愿
Some would die and some would kill
有人长眠异乡,有人图财害命
Some would thank the lord for their deliverance
还有人感谢上帝赐予他解脱
And some would curse john sutter's mill.
也有人会诅咒老约翰的磨房
And some would curse john sutter's mill

Some men's thirsts are never filled.
也有人的的欲望永远无法满足
