Johnny Horton North To Alaska Lyrics

Last updated: 11/10/2009 10:00:00 AM

Way up north (north to Alaska) way up north (north to Alaska)
North to Alaska a-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 valleys far below
He talked to his team of huskies as he mushed 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 nineteen-one

Where the river is windin' big nuggets they're findin'
North to Alaska a-go north the rush is on
Way up north (north to Alaska) way up north (north to Alaska)
North to Alaska a-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'...
