WHEN IT'S SPRINGTIME IN ALASKA
Words and music by Johnny Horton & Tillman Franks
As recorded by Johnny Horton

I mushed from Point Barrow through a blizzard of snow.
Been out prospecting for two years or so.
Pulled into Fairbanks; the city was a boom,
So I took a little stroll to the Red Dog Saloon.

As I walked in the door, the music was clear,
The purtiest voice I had heard in two years.
The song she was singin' made a man's blood run cold:
"When it's springtime in Alaska, it's forty below."

It was red-headed Lil who was singin' so sweet.
I reached down and took the snow packs off my feet.
I reached for the gal who was singin' the tune.
We did the Eskimo Hop all around the saloon.

With the Caribou Crawl and the Grizzly Bear Hug,
We did our dance on a Kodiak rug.
The song she kept singin' made a man's blood run cold:
"When it's springtime in Alaska, it's forty below."

I was as innocent as I could be.
I didn't know 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.
