North To Alaska Lyrics
North To Alaska

Performed by Johnny Horton

*Way up north,way up north
North to Alaska
They go north,the rush is on
North to Alaska
They go north,the rush is on

Big Sam left Seattle in the year of
With George Pratt,his partne 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

Same crossed the majestic mountains
To the valleys far below
He talked to his team of huskies
As he jushed on through the snow
With the northern lights a-running wild
In the land of the midnight sun
Yes,Sam McCord was a mighty man
In the year of 1

**Where the river is winding
Big nuggets they're finding
North to Alaska
They go north,the rush is on

(Repeat *)

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 golden lace
On sweet little Ginnies 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 Ginnie a honeymoon home
Below that old white mountain
Just a little southeast of Nome

(Repeat **)
