Alaska And Me

This song is by John Denver and appears on the album Higher Ground (1989).

When I was a child and I lived in the city
I dreamed of Alaska so far away
And I dreamed I was flying over mountains and glasciers
Somehow I knew that I'd live there one day

Well it took me some growin' and a fair bit of schoolin'
And a little bit of trouble to get on the move
And I felt like loser but I turned out the winner
When I came to Alaska the land that I love

Here's to Alaska here's to the people
Here's to the wild and heres to the free
Here's to my life in a chosen country
Here's to Alaska and me

I was born in a cabin on little Mulchatna
Raised in hard times but I had a good life
From the first time I flew with my father a singin'
I knew that I'd wind up a bush pilots wife

We sleep near the sound of a slow running river
And wake up most mornings to a drizzling rain
And we face every day like the first or the last one
With nothing to lose and heaven to gain

Here's to Alaska here's to the people
Here's to the wild and heres to the free
Here's to my life in a chosen country
Here's to Alaska and me

Oh for a fire on a cold winters night
And once more to gaze at the great Northernlights
For all of the beauty my children will see
Heres to Alaska and me

Here's to Alaska here's to the people
Here's to the wild and heres to the free
Here's to my life in a chosen country
Here's to Alaska and me
