I mushed from Port Barrol through a blizzard of snow
Pulled into Fairbanks, the city was a boon

Prettiest voice I had heard in two years
When it's springtime in Alaska, it's forty below
It was red headed Luie that was singing so sweet
I reached for the gal that was singing the tune

We did our dance on a Kodiak rug
When it's springtime in Alaska, it's forty below
Well, I was as innocent as I could be
He took out his knife and he gave it a throw
