North To Alaska Lyrics - Johnny Horton

Review The Song (1)



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

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

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

Below that old White Mountain just a little southeast of Nome

Where the river is windin'...

Three versions of the song | Reviewer: Lee Ann Sontheimer Murphy | 11/6/2007

Just an FYI or trivia nugget - there were three recorded versions of this song and the line Johnny loved best was not in the final cut that was released...."It was so tough in Nome, Alaska, that canary birds sang bass"!!!!
