North To Alaska
 
 

(Way up north, north to Alaska)
(Way up north, north to Alaska)

North to Alaska!
Go north, the rush is on
North to Alaska!
Go north, the rush is on

Big Sam left Seattle in the year of ninety-two
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 them thru 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 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
North to Alaska!
Go 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 Jenny'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 Jenny 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 go north the rush is on

North to Alaska go north the rush is on

(Way up north, north to Alaska)
(Way up north, north to Alaska)

Fade

(Way up north, north to Alaska)
(Way up north, north to Alaska)

Lyrics by Mike Phillips.
Recorded by Johnny Horton.
