[Verse 1]
E                                   B7
I mushed from Port Barren through a blizzard 
   E
of snow.
E       
Been out prospecting for two years or so.
E                     
Pulled into Fairbanks, the city was a-boom.
E                                 A       E
So, I took a little stroll to the Red Dog saloon.

[Verse 2]
E                           B7        E
As I walked in the door the music was clear.
E
The prettiest voice I had heard in two years.
E                              
The song she was singin' made a man's blood run 
E
cold.
E                                   A     E
When it's springtime in Alaska it's forty below.
E                                   A     E
When it's springtime in Alaska it's forty below.)

[Verse 3]
E                             B7          E
It was red headed Lil who was singin' so sweet.
E       
I reached down and took the snow packs off my feet.
E                         
I reached for the gal who was singin' the tune.
E                          A         E
We did the Eskimo hop all around the saloon.

[Verse 4]
E                               B7           E
Where the caribou crawl and the grizzly bear hug.
E
We did our dance on a Kodiak rug.
E                                
The song she kept singing made a man's blood run 
E
cold.
E                                   A     E
When it's springtime in Alaska it's forty below.

[Verse 5]
E                 B7        E
I was as innocent as I could be, I didn't know Lil 
E
was big Ed's wife to be.
E
He took out his knife and he gave it a throw.
E                                      A          E
When it's springtime in Alaska I'll be six feet below.

[Outro]
 E                                       A          E
(When it's springtime in Alaska he'll be six feet below.)
