Saginaw Michigan
recorded by Lefty Frizzell
written by Bill Anderson and Don Wayne

G               D7      G               
I was born   in Saginaw Michigan 
       C       G                D7
I grew up in a house on Saginaw Bay
             G                         C
My dad was a poor hard working Saginaw fisherman
         G                  D7              G
Too many times he came home with too little pay
                 D7      G
I love a girl in Saginaw Michigan
    C             G               D7
The daughter of a wealthy wealthy man
              G                        C
But he called me that son of a Saginaw fisherman
         G         D7                  G
Not good enough to claim his daughters hand

        C                  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
         C                                  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
       C                G                    D7
I said Honey I'm coming home please wait for me
                  G                     C
You can tell your dad I'm coming back a richer man           
          G                 D7       G
I hit the biggest strike in Klondike history
                   D7      G
Her dad met me  in Saginaw Michigan           
   C                   G              D7
He gave me a great big party with champagne                       
             G                          C
Then he said Son  you're a wise young ambitious man             
         G                     D7                G
Will you sell you're father in law your Klondike claim
         C                   G
Now he's up there in Alaska  digging in the cold cold ground       
    D7                             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
         D7                            G
Least of all the newly weds of Saginaw Michigan
             D7                      G
The happiest man and wife in Saginaw Michigan
