Goin up to Alaska
Up to the land of the midnight sun
Where the whale and the polar bear run
Oer the icy blue sea

Goin up to Alaska
Up to the north and the pioneer life
Where courage and strength still survive
And a man can be free






American Child, does the call of the wild
Ever sing through the mist of your dreams
Does it fly with the wind when you waken again
When its gone do you know what it means

Can you picture the time when a man had to find
His own way through the cold
To come back again to all that youve been
Cant you see that its time to come home

To the flowers and seas and the rivers and the trees
And the earth whos the mother of all
A promise once made - will it shine, will it fade
Will we rise with the vision or fall

Goin up to Alaska
Up to the land of the midnight sun
Where the whale and the polar bear run
Oer the icy blue sea

Goin up to Alaska
Up to the north and the pioneer life
Where courage and strength still survive
And a man can be free

Men can be free
Goin up to Alaska
Goin up to Alaska
Goin up to Alaska
