SQUAWS ALONG THE YUKON
(C) There's a Salmon-colored girl who (F) sets my heart awhirl
Who (G7) lives along the Yukon far a-(C) way
Where the Northern Lights, they shine, (C) she rubs her nose to mine
She (G7) cuddles close and I can hear her (C) say.
(*OOGA-OOGA MOOSKA), which (C) means that I love you
If (G7) you'll be my baby, I'll (*OOGA-OOGA MOOSKA) (G7) you
Then I take her hand in mine and (C) set her on my knee
The (G7) Squaws along the Yukon are good enough for (C) me.
She makes her underwear from hides of Grizzly bear
And bathes in ice cold water every day
Her skin, I love to touch, but I just can't touch it much
Because her fur-lined Parkas' in the way.
She's got the Air Corps down, the Sourdoughs hang around
(*Chechakos) try to date her night and day
With a landing gear that's fine and a fusilage divine
And a smile that you can see a mile away.
TAG: Carry me back to old Alaska
The Squaws Along The Yukon are good enough for me.
