When It's Springtime In Alaska (Cash Johnny)

I mushed from Port Barrol through a blizzard of snow Been out prospecting for two years or so Pulled into Fairbanks, the city was a boon So I took a little stroll to the Red Dog Saloon When I walked in the door, the music was clear Prettiest voice I had heard in two years The song she kept singing would make a man's blood run cold When it's springtime in Alaska, it's forty below It was red headed Luie that was singing so sweet I reached down and took the snow packs off of my feet I reached for the gal that was singing the tune We did the Eskimo hop all around the saloon Where the caribou crawl and the grizzly bear hug We did our dance on a Kodiak rug The song she kept singing would make a man's blood run cold When it's springtime in Alaska, it's forty below Well, I was as innocent as I could be I didn't know that Luie 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
