You take a ricket[A]y plane from Sea[B]ttle up into Ancho[D]rage
You ste[A]p off the platform sta[B]ring at the midnight sun[D]
Jump in my pic[A]kup, brother, we'll dr[B]ive
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
The mountains [A]rise from ocean to[B] sky in Homer,[D] Alaska
They'll the steal[A] your breath and your trou[B]bles in the blink of an [D]eye
[A] [B] [C#min] 
[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"
She'll push a mason [Emin]jar across the bar and say "Mister[B], welcome home!"
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]
Now, Home[A]r is a town full of misfi[B]t toys, rene[C#min]gade wo[B]men and runaw[A]ay boys
[Emin]Everyobody's got some kind of story here in H[B]omer town.
Guess sometime[Emin]s you gotta go to the end of the earth, just to [B]turn yourself around
[A] [B] [A] [B] 
Brother,[D] you just might stay. If you're running away to Alaska, Alaska, Alaska, Alaska
