Saginaw, Michigan Lefty Frizzell

Intro: G7-C

  C       G7              C
1)I was born  in Saginaw, Michigan
       F        C               G7
I grew up in a house on Saginaw bay
             C
My dad was a poor, hard working Saginaw fisherman
          F                 G7              C
too many times he came home with too little pay

2) I loved the girl in Saginaw, Michigan
The daughter of a wealthy, wealthy man
But he called me "That son of a Saginaw fisherman"
And I could end up to claim his daughter's hand.
                             F                         C
Bridge1) Now I'm up here in Alaska looking around for gold
G7                                           C         F
like a crazy fool I'm diggin in these frozen grounds a cold
                                                     C
But with each new day I pray I'll strike it rich and then
        G7                                      C
I'll go back home and claim my love in Saginaw, Michigan

3) I wrote my love in Saginaw, Michigan
I said,"Honey, I'm comin' home please wait for me
And you can tell your dad I'm comin' back a richer man
I've hit the biggest strike in Klondike history."

4) Her dad met me in Saginaw, Michigan
He threw me a great big party with champagne
And he said,"Son, you wise, young, ambitious man,
Will you sell your father all your Klondike claim?"

Bridge2) Now he's up there in Alaska diggin' in the cold, cold ground
The greedy fool is lookin' for the gold I never found
It serves him right and no one here is missin' him
At least not the newlyweds of Saginaw, Michigan.

                   G7                       C
We're the happiest man and wife in Saginaw, Michigan
He's ashamed to show his face in Saginaw, Michigan

Verse F should be on the end of the third line.
Then C G7 and C for the verse fourth.

Lyrics and chord placement are wrong. one example: Its not "and I could end up to claim his daughters hand" its "and not good enough, to claim his daughters hand"
