When It's Spring Time In Alaska (It's Forty Below)

This song is by Johnny Horton and appears…

This song has been covered by Johnny Cash under the title "When It's Springtime In Alaska (It's Forty Below)".
I mushed from point barrow through blizzard of snow
Been out prospectin' for two years or so
Pulled into fairbanks, the city was a-boom
So I took a little stroll to the red dog sea-loon

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
When it's springtime in Alaska, it's forty below
(When it's springtime in Alaska it's forty below)

It was redhead lil who was singin' so sweet
I reached down and took the snow packs off my feet
I reached for the gal who was singin' the tune
We did the eskeemo hop all around the sea-loon

With a caribou crawl and a grizzly bear hug
We did our dance on a kodiak rug
The song she kept singin' made a man's blood run cold
When it's springtime in Alaska it's forty below

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
When it's springtime in Alaska I'll be six feet below
(When it's springtime in Alaska he'll be six feet below)
