D7 G


I was born

D7           G
In Saginaw, Michigan

       C       G                D7
I grew up in a house on Saginaw Bay

             G          G7               C
My dad was a poor, hard-working Saginaw fisherman

          G                 D7              G
Too many times he came home with too little pay

I loved a girl

D7           G
In Saginaw, Michigan

     C             G               D7
The daughter of a wealthy, wealthy man

              G       G7                C
But he called me that son of a Saginaw fisherman

         G              D7                   G
And not good enough to claim his daughter's hand


        C                  G
Now I'm up here in Alaska looking around for gold

        D7                             G                
Like a crazy fool I'm digging in this frozen ground so cold

          C                                  G
But with each new day I pray I'll strike it rich and then

              D7                                 G
I'll go back home and claim my love in Saginaw, Michigan


I wrote my love

D7           G
In Saginaw, Michigan

        C                G                   D7
I said honey I'm coming home please wait for me

                       G       G7            C
And you can tell your dad I'm coming back a richer man

           G                 D7           G
I hit the biggest strike in Klondike history

Her dad met me

D7           G
In Saginaw, Michigan

    C                   G              D7
He gave me a great big party with champagne

             G             G7          C
Then he said son you're a wise young ambitious man

          G                  D7                 G
Will you sell your father-in-law your Klondike claim


             C               G
Now he's up there in Alaska diggin' in the cold, cold ground

     D7                            G              
The greedy fool is looking for the gold I never found

    C                                  G
It serves him right and no one here is missing him

         D7                             G
Least of all the newlyweds of Saginaw, Michigan

                   D7                        G
We're the happiest man and wife in Saginaw, Michigan

                 D7                        G
He's ashamed to show his face in Saginaw, Michigan
