Springtime In Alaska

Johnny Horton

SPRINGTIME IN ALASKA Recorded by Johnny Horton Words and music by Tillman Franks & Johnny Horton
CAPO: 2nd FRET/KEY: E/PLAY: D I [D] mushed from Point Barrow thru a [A7] bizzard of [D] snow Been out prospectin' for two years or so Pulled into Fairbanks the city was a boom So I took a little stroll to the [G] Reddog [D] Saloon.
As I walked in the door the music was clear The purtiest voice I had heard in two years The song she was singin' made a man's blood run cold When It's Springtime In Alaska, it's forty below.
(When It's Springtime In Alaska, it's forty below.)
It was Red-headed Lil who was singin' so sweet I reached down and took the snowpacks off my feet I reached for the gal who was singin' the tune We did the Eskimo Hop all around the saloon.
With a Caribou Crawl and the Grizzly Bear Hug We did our dance on a Kodiak rug The song she kept singin' made a man's blood run cold When It's Springtime In Alaska, it's forty below.
I was as innocent as I could be I didn't know Lil was big Ed's wife to be He took out his knife and he gave it a throw When It's Springtime In Alaska, I'll be six feet below.
TAG: (When It's Springtime In Alaska, he'll be six feet below.)
