When It's Springtime In Alaska

Lyrics Shared By: Jennifer

Johnny Cash and June Carter:
When it's springtime in Alaska, it's forty below

Johnny:
I mushed from Point Barrow through a blizzard of snow
Been out prospecting for two years or so
Pulled into Fairbanks the city was a boom

Johnny and June:
So I took a little stroll to the Red Dog Saloon

June: Yes, he took a little stroll to the Red Dog Saloon

Johnny:
When I walked thru the door, the music was clear
The prettiest voice I had heard in two years
The song she kept singing would make a man's blood run cold

Johnny and June:
When it's springtime in Alaska, it's forty below

June:
When it's springtime in Alaska, it's forty below

Johnny:
It was redheaded Lil that was singing so sweet
I reached down and took the snowpacks off my feet
I reached for the gal that was singing the tune

Johnny and June:
We did the Eskimo Hop all around the saloon

June:
We did the Eskimo Hop all around the saloon

Johnny:
With a caribou crawl and the grizzly bear hug
We did our dance on a Kodiak rug
The song she kept singing would make a man's blood run cold

Johnny and June: When it's springtime in Alaska, it's forty below

Johnny and June:
When it's springtime in Alaska, it's forty below

Johnny:
I was as innocent as I could be
I didn't know that Lil was big Ed's wife to be
He took out his knife and he gave it a throw

Johnny and June:
When it's springtime in Alaska Johnny: I'll be six feet below

June:
When it's springtime in Alaska, he's six feet below
