Lyrics

(Tillman Franks)

Chorus:
Way up north to Alaska, way up north to Alaska
North to Alaska, goin' north, the rush is on.
North to Alaska, goin' north, the rush is on.

Big Sam left Seattle in the year of ninety-two
With George Pratt his partner, and brother Billy too
They crossed the Yukon River and found a bonanza gold
Below that old white mountain, just a little southeast of Nome.

Sam crossed the majestic mountains to the valleys far below
He talked to his team of huskies as they mushed on through the snow
With the Northern Lights a-runnin' wild in the land of the midnight sun
Yes, Sam McCord was a mighty man in the year of nineteen-one.

Where the river is winding, big nuggets they're finding,
North to Alaska, goin' north, the rush is on.

Chorus:
Way up north to Alaska, way up north to Alaska
North to Alaska, goin' north, the rush is on.
North to Alaska, goin' north, the rush is on.

George turned to Sam with his gold in his hand
Said 'Sam, "You're a looking' at a lonely, lonely man
I'd trade all the gold that's buried in this land
For one small band of gold placed on sweet little Jeannie's hand."

"Cause a man needs a woman to love him all the time
Remember Sam a true love is so hard to find
I'd build for my Jeannie a honeymoon home
Just below that old white mountain just a little southeast of Nome..."
