North to Alaska by Johnny Horton

North to Alaska




生於1925年的強尼哈頓(Johnny Horton),
是我最喜愛的歌星之一。
這個【老式情歌】專欄的第二首歌
就是他的<低語的松林>

當時我寫道: 「他最擅長演唱民謠說歷史的歌,
例如“The Battle of New Orleans”
唱英國攻打紐奧良的故事,
“Sink the Bismarck”
唱德國的俾斯麥戰艦被擊沉的故事,
和“North to Alaska”(北國尋金記),
但是我偏好他的抒情鄉村歌曲。」
後來又貼了他的“All for the Love of a Girl“
倒是一直沒有貼過他的歷史民謠歌曲,
現在趕緊為大家貼這首“North to Alaska”。

這首歌是Mike Phillips在1960年所寫,
在鄉村歌曲排行榜升上榜魁,
在流行歌曲排行榜也高居第四,
也是同名的西部電影《北國尋金記》的片首曲。

North to Alaska

North to Alaska go north the rush is on
North to Alaska go north the rush is on

Big Sam left Seattle in the year of ninety-two
With George Pratt his partner and brother Billy too
They crossed the Yukon river and they found the bonanza gold
Below that old white mountain
Just a little south-east of Nome
Sam crossed the Majestic mountains to the valleys far below
He talked to his team of huskies
As he mushed on through the snow
With the northen lights a-runnin' wild
In the land of the midnight sun
Yes Sam McCord was a mighty man
In the year of nineteen-one
Where the river is windin' big nuggets they're findin'
North to Alaska go north the rush is on
North to Alaska go north the rush is on

George turns to Sam with his gold in his hand
Said Sam you're lookin' at a lonely lonely man
I'd trade all the gold that's buried in this land
For one small band of gold to place on sweet little Jenny's hand
'Cause a man needs a woman to love him all the time
Remember Sam a true love is so hard to find
I'd build for my Jenny a honeymoon home
Below that old white mountain
Just a little south-east of Nome
Where the river is windin' big nuggets they're findin'
North to Alaska go north the rush is on
North to Alaska go north the rush is on
