"When It's Springtime In Alaska" lyrics

When It's Springtime In Alaska

When it's springtime in Alaska
It's forty below

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

Yes, he took a little stroll
To the Red Dog saloon

When I walked through the door
The music was clear
The 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

When it's springtime in Alaska
It's forty below

It was red headed Lil
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

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

When it's springtime in Alaska
It's forty below

I was as innocent
As I could be
I didn't know that 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

When it's springtime in Alaska
He's six feet below
