SAGINAW MICHIGAN by Lefty Frizell
           
     Oh I was born in Saginaw Michigan
     I grew up in a house in Saginaw Bay
     My dad was a poor hard workin' Saginaw fisherman
     To many times he came home with to little pay
     
     I loved a girl ,in Saginaw Michigan
     The daughter of a wealthy wealthy man
     But he called me the son of a Saginaw fisherman
     I wasn't good enough to take his daughter's hand
     
     That's why I went up to Alaska,digging the cold cold ground
     Like a fool I'm digging in this frozen ground so cold
     But I know someday I'll strike it rich and go back home
     Go back home to my love in Saginaw Michigan
     
     I wrote my love in Saginaw Michigan
     I said honey I'm coming home please wait for me
     And you can tell your dad ,I'm coming back a rich man
     I made the biggest strike in Klondike history
     
     Her dad met me in Saginaw Michigan
     He gave me a great big party with champagne
     He said son you're a young wise ambitious man
     Why don't you sell your father-in-law your Klondike mine
     
     Now he's up there in Alaska
     Digging the cold cold ground
     The greedy man he's looking for the gold I never found
     No one here is caring much or missing him
     Most of all the newly weds in Saginaw Michigan
