Saginaw Michigan recorded by Lefty Frizzell written by Bill Anderson and Don Wayne
G I was born in Saginaw Michigan
D7 I grew up in a house on Saginaw Bay
C My dad was a poor hard working Saginaw fisherman
G Too many times he came home with too little pay D7 G I love a girl in Saginaw Michigan
D7 The daughter of a wealthy wealthy man
C But he called me that son of a Saginaw fisherman
G Not good enough to claim his daughters hand
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
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
D7 G I wrote my love in Saginaw Michigan
D7 I said Honey I'm coming home please wait for me
C You can tell your dad I'm coming back a richer man
D7 G I hit the biggest strike in Klondike history
D7 G Her dad met me in Saginaw Michigan
gave me a great big party with
he said Son you're a wise young ambitious
G Will you sell you're father in law your Klondike claim
G Now he's up there in Alaska digging in the cold cold ground
G The greedy fool is lookin' for the gold I never found C
G It serves him right and no one here is missing him
G Least of all the newly weds of Saginaw Michigan
G The happiest man and wife in Saginaw Michigan
