John DenverAlaska And Me

When I was a child and I lived in the city I dreamed of Alaska so far away And I dreamed I was flying over mountains and glaciers Somehow I knew I'd live there one day Well it took me some growin', and a fair bit of schoolin' And a little bit of trouble to get on the move And I felt like a loser but I turned out the winner When I came to Alaska the land that I love Here's to Alaska, here's to the people Here's to the wild and here's to the free Here's to my life in a chosen country Here's to Alaska and me I was born in a cabin on Little Mulchatna Raised in hard times but I had a good life From the first time I flew with my father a singin' I knew that I'd wind up a bush pilot's wife We sleep near the sound of a slow running river And wake up most mornings to a drizzling rain And we live every day like the first or the last one With nothin' to lose and heaven to gain Here's to Alaska, here's to the people Here's to the wild and here's to the free Here's to my life in a chosen country Here's to Alaska and me Oh, for the fire on a cold winters night Once more to gaze at the great northern lights For all of the beauty my children will see Here's to Alaska and me Here's to Alaska, here's to the people Here's to the wild and here's to the free Here's to my life in a chosen country Here's to Alaska and me
