Bobby Bare - 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 times 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
And said I wasn't good enough for his daughter's hand
That's why I went up to Alaska searchin' around for gold
Like a crazy fool I was diggin' in the frozen ground so cold
But with each new day I pray I'd 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 comin' home please wait for me
And you can tell your dad I'm coming back a richer man
I've hit the biggest strike in Klondyke history
So her dad met me in Saginaw Michigan
He gave me a great big party and we served champagne
Then he said son now you're a wise young ambitious man
Now won't you sell your father-in-law your Klondyke claim
So now he's up there in Alaska diggin' in the cold cold ground
Why the greedy fool is lookin' for the gold I never found
It serves him right and no one here is a missin' him
Least of all the newly weds of Saginaw Michigan
Least of all us newly weds of Saginaw Michigan (Saginaw Michigan)
