Saginaw Michigan Lyrics

Artist: David Houston
Album: Twelve Great Country Hits

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
Not good enough to claim his daughter's hand
Now I'm up here in Alaska looking around for gold
Like a crazy fool I'm diggin' in the frozen ground so cold
But with each new day I pray I'll 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 a coming home please wait for me
You can tell your dad I'm coming back a richer man
I've hit the biggest strike in Klondyke history
Her dad met me in Saginaw Michigan
He gave me a great big party with champagne
Then he said son you're a wise ambitious man
Will you sell your father-in-law your Klondyke claim
Now he's up there in Alaska a diggin' in the cold cold ground
Like a greedy fool is a lookin' for the gold I never found
It serves him right no one here is missing him
Least of all the newly weds of Saginaw Michigan
Least of all the newly weds of Saginaw Michigan
We're the happiest man and wife in Saginaw Michigan
