Thompson Hank Lyrics
SQUAWS ALONG THE YUKON
Recorded by Hank Thompson
Words and music by Cam Smith
[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.
