North To Alaska

In the style of

Johnny Horton

Lyrics

north to alaska
they're goin' north
the rush is on
north to alaska
they're goin' north
the rush is on

big sam left seattle
in the year of '92
with george pratt
his partner
and brother
billy too

they crossed
the yukon river
and found
the bonanza gold
below that
old white mountain
just a little
southeast of nome

sam crossed
the majestic
mountains to
the valleys
far below

he talked to
his team of huskies
as he mushed 'em
through the snow

with the
northern lights
a-runnin' wild
in the land
of the midnight sun

yes sam mccord
was a mighty man
in the year of
nineteen-one

where the river
is windin'
big nuggets
they're findin'
north to alaska
they're goin' north
the rush is on

north to alaska
they're goin' north
the rush is on
north to alaska
they're goin' north
the rush is on

george turned to sam
with his gold
in his hand
said sam
you're a-lookin'
at a lonely
lonely man

i'd trade all the gold
that's buried
in this land
for one small
band of gold to place
on sweet little
ginny's hand

'cause a man
needs a woman
to love him
all the time
remember sam
a true love is
so hard to find

i'd build for my ginny
a honeymoon home
below that old
white mountain
just a little
southeast of nome

where the river
is windin'
big nuggets
they're findin'

north to alaska
they're goin' north
the rush is on
north to alaska
they're goin' north
the rush in on
