[Way up north, north to Alaska
Way up north, north to Alaska]
North! to Alaska, they're goin' north, the rush is on
North! to Alaska, they're 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 the 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 he 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 windin', big nuggets they're findin'
North! to Alaska, they're goin' north, the rush is on
[Way up north, north to Alaska
Way up north, north to Alaska]
North! to Alaska, they're goin' north, the rush is on
North! to Alaska, they're goin' north, the rush is on
George turned to Sam with his gold in his hand
Said Sam, you're a-lookin' at a lonely, lonely man
I'd trade all the gold that's buried in this land
For one small band of gold to place on sweet little Jenny'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 Jenny a honeymoon home
Below that old white mountain, just a little southeast of Nome
Where the river is windin', big nuggets they're findin'
North! to Alaska, they're goin' north, the rush is on
North! to Alaska, they're goin' north, the rush is on
[Way up north, north to Alaska
Way up north, north to Alaska...]
