Jerry Lee Lewis Lyrics

North To Alaska Lyrics
Big Sam left Seattle in the year of 1902

With George as his partner and brother Billy too

They crossed the Yukon River found the Bonanza gold

Beneath that old White Mountain just a little southeast of Nome

Sam crossed the majestic mountain to valleys far below

He talked to his team of huskys as he mushed on through the snow

Well the northern lights were running wild in the land of the midnight sun

Yes Sam McCord was a mighty man in the year of 1901

Where the river is winding big nuggets they're finding

North to Alaska go north the rush is on

Way up north north to Alaska way up north north to Alaska

North to Alaska go north the rush is on

[ piano ]

Well George turned to Sam with this gold in his hand

Said Sam you're a looking at a lonely lonely man

I'd trade all the gold that's burried in this land

For one little band of gold to place on sweet little Jeannie's hand

Cause a man needs a woman to love him all the time

Where the river is winding...
