You take a ricket[A]y plane from Sea[B]ttle up into Ancho[D]rage

Bring your t[C#min]roubles down highw[B]ay nine.[A]
I've got a pull[Emin]-out couch and a job lined up at a canner[B]y
You hitch a ride t[Emin]o Homer, Alaska, brother, the drinks will be on[B] me
Raise a glas[D]s, lift a chalic[Emin]e
[A]Welcome to Alice's Champ[B]agne Palace
The fin[C#min]est bar on the s[B]trip in Homer, Alas[A]ka, Al[B]aska
If you're from New Yor[D]k, Da[Emin]llas, y[A]ou'll find a home at the Champa[B]gne Palace
[C#min] [B] [Emin] 
[A]Alice'l[B]l pour you a cold one, go ahead and ask her, if you're running away
to A[D]laska, Alaska

[B]You'll hear [A]a band with a steel guitar, there's a window seat right at the bar
[Emin]The whales are breaching and Alice is preaching "like a rollin[B]g stone"

You've never bee[A]n to a prettier [B]place than Homer, Alaska[D]
You've never[A] met a kinder face[B] than the one behind the bar[D]
