Lost up in no-man's land 
       G7            C 
In the Northwest Territories

They were lost up in no-man's land

verse 1 

C  
On November the eighth of seventy two 
G7                  C 
North of the arctic circle 

A plane took off for Cambridge Bay 
        G7              C 
And the pilots name was Hartwell 
     F                 C 
They had to make it to Yellowknife  
G7                     C 
Although the night was stormin 
   F                    C 
To save the lives of an Eskimo boy 
      G7              C 
And a pregnant Eskimo woman. 

verse 2 


"oh Mr.Hartwell"said the nurse 
 G7                   C 
"I pray that you will guide us 

To save the life of the woman with her child 
        G7            C 
And the boy with appendicitis   
        F                    C 
But the wind it blew and the storm it grew 
        G7           C 
And the signal of controita 
     F                   C 
They missed by miles and flying wild 
     G7                  C 
They crashed beside Lake Hota

Now Judy Hill the federal nurse  
    G7             C 
She never lived to waken  
  
And the lives of the mother and child 
     G7              C 
Were both soon after taken 
        F             C 
But the pilot woke to find himself  
        G7              C 
And the Eskimo boy were livin 
F              C 
Left in pain beside the plane  
   G7                  C 
To search the sky's of heaven 

verse 4 


Day by day the pilot lay 
     G7              C 
With both his ankles broken  

And it took the lad everything he had 
        G7            C 
Just to keep the fire stokin 
      F             C 
While in the sky to far away 
    G7              C 
The rescue team was seekin  
      F                C 
For a signal wave that might be traced 
   G7               C 
To Hartwell's radio beacon

Verse 5 


After nineteen days the arial search 
    G7            C 
Was said to be completed 

Until someone cried their still alive 
        G7               C 
And the search must be repeated 
        F                C 
And the day the beep was finally heard 
     G7              C 
Is a day we'll all remember  
  F             C 
A man was found safe and sound

On the ninth day of December

Harwell said"he should have died  
   G7                C 
at thirty five below zero" 
  
And the reason Hartwell did services 
       G7             C 
Is the boy had died a hero 
    F                      C 
"he brought me food when I couldn't move, 
      G7              C 
While he himself grew feeble,

Yes,Davy Kutook  died a saint 
      G7            C 
And a credit to his people"
