These lyrics were only used in the pilot.
They were so bad that not only did they abandon them,
But they stripped them off the pilot for reruns.

We chased lady luck, 'til we finally struck
Bonanza
With a gun and a rope and a hat full of hope,
we planted our family tree.
We got a hold of a pot full of gold,
Bonanza
With a horse and a saddle,
and a ring full of cattle,
How rich can a fellow be?
On this land we put our brand,
Cartwright is the name,
Fortune smiled,
the day we filed the Ponderosa claim.

Here in the west,
we're livin' in the best
Bonanza
If anyone fights any one of us,
he's got a fight with me
Bonanza
Hoss and Joe and Adam know
every rock and pine,
No one works fights, or eats,
like those boys of mine
Here we stand in the middle of a grand
Bonanza
With a gun and a rope and a hatful of hope,
we planted our family tree,
We got a hold of a potful of gold
Bonanza
With a houseful of friends where the rainbow ends,
How rich can a fellow be?
On this land we put our brand Cartwright is the name,
Fortune smiled, the day we filed the Ponderosa claim
Here in the west we're living in the best
Bonanza
With the friendliest, fightingist, lovingist band,
That ever set foot in the promised land
And we're happier than them all.
That's why we call it
Bonanza...bonanza.. bonanza
