When It's Spring Time 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
