Here's a fun Vic Jordan arrangement. Bill Monroe had something to do with this song....

Jack Baker Jack, your "Goldrush" doesn't bring up anything. There's nothing in the new additions or archives of Goldrush by you.

Hi Sherry,
I'm changing computers and everything has to be re-posted for some odd reason. I asked an Computer pro about it and they didn't know either...I'll get it back on though....Jack

Two separate words. Bill Monroe got credit in 1967, but I suspect Byron berline and Vic Jordan brought him the tune. In later recordings Byron added a a 3rd section. One of my favorites whether I play it on fiddle or banjo.

Thanks, Jack.   This is one of the first songs I learned before going to Camp Bluegrass many years ago and I have loved the song ever since.  Always enjoy listening/learning a different version.

Jack's tab is pretty much the way I remember learning it. When I started going to Beanblossom in the late Sixties, the song was ubiquitous in the jam sessions. It was common to hear it played simultaneously in multiply jam sessions around the festival grounds.

It's always been my understanding that Byron Berline was the composer of the song. Bill Monroe of course took credit for the song because Berline was one of his employees. Some folks find that practice to be objectionable, but, like most engineers, I experienced the same thing where I worked. When I invented something that was patented by my employer, my name was on the patent, but the patent was assigned to my employer. I was paid $1 by my employer in exchange for the patent assignment rights for each patent. If you want to own your creative works, you need to demand a contract or work for yourself.

Hmm,
Thanks Wayne, Goldrush sounds like something Byron would come up with. What made that song work was the combination of Byron and Vic's enormous talents...Jack
