Lyrics:
It's twenty below, out here
In the snow,
But it's fifty below deep inside me
my heart feels as cold
As the Yukon River flow
Whose frozen memories remind me
Of the ones who carried the mail
Down these trails, singin'
We ain't chainin' up,
We're drivin' on, boys,
We ain't chainin' up
We're drivin' on.

(Chorus)
And here's to the snow-blind heroes,
Frontier pioneers- all crazy at best
Who challenge the country
'Cross the Northwest,
Out on the Yukon Quest,
Out on the Yukon Quest.

My team is "tough-tired" and strong,
We've trained hard and long
For the slowest is as fast as we'll run.
In that cut-bank downstream,
Sleepin' cold, I dreamed
Of the red lantern waitin' when I'm done.
But if it's Fairbanks or Whitehorse
My team will take me home,
Cuz we ain't chainin' up,
We're drivin' on, boys,
We ain't chainin' up
We're drivin' on.

(Chorus)
A thousand reasons why
These volunteers and I,
Are out here on
These Northern Parallels.
When it's all said and done,
Our race has just begun,
And the legends of
The Midnight Sun will tell
Of the ones who came
To challenge themselves, singin'
We ain't chainin' up,
We're drivin' on, boys,
We ain't chainin' up
We're drivin' on.

(Chorus)
And here's to the ones
Who challenge themselves -
Out on the Yukon Quest boys,
Out on the Yukon Quest.
