Song : WHEN IT'S SPRINGTIME IN ALASKA 

Intro. E – A - E

    E                               B7          E
I marched from Point Barrow thru a blizzard of snow,

been out prospectin' for two years or so,

pulled into Fairbanks, the city was a boom,
                                  A          E
so I took a little stroll to the Red Dog Saloon.
 
      E                      B7          E
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,
                                      A       E
when it's springtime in Alaska, it's forty below.
                                              A       E
(Backup)When it's springtime in Alaska, it's forty below

          E                   B7           E
It was Redheaded Lil who was singin' so sweet,

I reached down and took the snowpacks off my feet,

I reached for the gal who was singin' the tune,
                            A            E
we did the Eskimo Hop all around the saloon.

        E                      B7          E
With a 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,
                                      A      E          
when it's springtime in Alaska, it's forty below.
 
 E                B7         E
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,
                                         A          E
when it's springtime in Alaska, I'll be six feet below.
                                                  A              E
(Backup)When it's springtime in Alaska, he'll be six - feet - below
