Saginaw Michigan Lyrics

I was born in Saginaw Michigan
I grew up in a house on Saginaw bay
My dad was a poor hard working Saginaw fisherman
Too many nights he came home with too little pay

I loved a girl in Saginaw Michigan
The daughter of a wealthy, wealthy man
But he called me, "That son of a Saginaw fisherman"
Not good enough to claim his daughter's hand

That's why I'm up here in Alaska looking around for gold
Like a crazy fool I'm diggin' in this frozen ground so cold
But with each new day, I pray I'll strike it rich and then
I'll go back home and claim my love in Saginaw Michigan

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

Her dad met me in Saginaw Michigan
He gave me a great big party with champagne
Then he said, "Son you're a wise, young, ambitious man
Will you sell your father-in-law your Klondike claim?"

So now he's up there in Alaska diggin' in the cold, cold ground
The greedy fool is a lookin' for the gold I never found
It serves him right and no one here is missing him
Least of all the newly weds of Saginaw Michigan

Least of all the newly weds of Saginaw Michigan
Least of all the newly weds of Saginaw Michigan
