Now for the 1890s American railroad workers traditional song "She'll Be Coming Round The Mountain",
believed to be a modification of the earlier negro Rapture spiritual “When the Chariot Comes" and
which often has its lyric further modified to include eg
"Singing I will if you will, so will I,
Singing I will if you will, so will I,
Singing I will if you will,
I will if you will, I will if you will, so will I"

Listen to a bit of She'll Be Coming Round The Mountain ;

How? Heart of Gold, Coming Round the Mountain

Good, but reminds me of a 1972 Neil Young song 'Heart of Gold' that I at first somehow misheard as 'Searching for a Pot of Gold' and saw as maybe an alchemist song or of a scientist searching for a breakthrough or searching for funding to do long-planned experiments ? The lyric does however clearly refer to 'mining' as for actual gold, and it would make a good song if somewhat different by replacing 'heart of gold' with 'pot of gold' and maybe add lines like 'do not know about a rainbow' and 'do not know about a dice throw' ? This song is also somewhat unusually a young person singing about getting old, which rarely makes for a good popular song like this is, but when younger Neil Young did work for a funeral company. He followed his hit 'Heart of Gold' with another song about getting old 'Old Man'. But it is maybe strange that singers who are now getting older like Cher, Tina Turner and Mick Jagger rarely sing about getting old ?

And it is a rather interesting Bob Dylan style song, so why not listen to it ?

Yes indeed Heart of Gold is a good song, but maybe a new version could work even better, as maybe ;

Pot of Gold.

I want to live, I want to give
I've been a miner for a pot of gold
It's these expressions, I never give

That keep me searching for a pot of gold
And I'm getting old
Keep me searching for a pot of gold
And I'm getting old

For my own dreams, my pet project means
I dug rainbows for a pot of gold
I've been in my mind, It's such a fine line

That keeps me searching for a pot of gold
And I'm getting old
Keeps me searching for a pot of gold
And I'm getting old

For my girl's needs, to buy big house deeds
I borrowed big for a pot of gold
I've bet all my life, To have a good wife

That keeps me searching for a pot of gold
And I'm getting old
Keeps me searching for a pot of gold
And I'm getting old

To leave my sons, more help than just guns
I gambled big for a pot of gold
I've wasted my time, My kids I've failed

That keeps me searching for a pot of gold
And I'm getting old
Keeps me searching for a pot of gold
And I'm getting old

Keeps me searching for a pot of gold
And I'm getting old
Keep me searching for a pot of gold
I've been a miner for a pot of gold
And I'm growing old
