Johnny Horton - North To Alaska lyrics


Way up north to Alaska, way up 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 '92.
With George Pratt his partner, and brother Billy too.
They crossed the Yukon River, and found a 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 they mushed on 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 winding, big nuggets they're finding,
North to Alaska, go north, the rush is on.
Way up north to Alaska, way up 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 golden 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, we've gone north, the rush is on.
North to Alaska, we've gone north, the rush is on.
Way up north to Alaska, way up north to Alaska
North to Alaska, go north, the rush is on.
North to Alaska, go north, the rush is on.
