Mercury Mine, Nevada
out that cool Jeep!
If I had money tell ya what I'd do, I'd go down town and buy a Mercury
Mine or two, I'm crazy for that mercury, ya I'm crazy about that mercury.
That's right the man who worked this mine got a little too much
mercury in his system and went on to write that famous song about mercury
mining. Years later he was seen in the local hills jumping like a pogo
stick yelling "I'm coockoo for Coco-Puffs, coockoo for
Coco-Puffs". Just another prime example of what too much success can
do to a man.
It is written that this mine had over 5000 feet of workings and
that over 3000 flasks passed through here, now were those flasks of
mercury or flasks of whiskey?
