Chorus:
[F]Lost up in [C]no-man's land
In the [G7}Northwest Terri[C]tories
They were [F]lost up in [C]no-man's land
The [G7]Marten Hartwell [C]story
The [G7]Marten Hartwell [C]story

On November the 8th of '72
[G7]North of the Arctic [C]Circle
A plane took off from Cambridge Bay
And the [G7]pilot's name was [C]Hartwell
He [F]had to make it to [C]Yellowknife
Al[G7]though the night was [C]stormin'
To [F]save the lives of an [C]Eskimo boy
And a [G7]pregnant Eskimo [C]woman.

"Oh, Mr. Hartwell," said the nurse
"I [G7]pray that you will [C]guide us
To save this woman with her child
And the [G7]boy with appendi[C]citis."
But the [F]wind, it blew and the [C]storm, it grew
And the [G7]signal of Kan[C]twoita                      <-- "Kantwoita"?
They [F]missed by miles and [C]flying wild
They [G7]crashed beside Lake [C]Hota.
Chorus Now Judy Hill, the federal nurse She [G7]never lived to [C]waken And the life of the mother and her child Were [G7]both soon after [C]taken But the [F]pilot woke to [C]find himself And the [G7]Eskimo boy were [C]livin' [F]Left in pain be[C]side the plane To [G7]search the skies of [C]heaven. Day by day the pilot lay With [G7]both his ankles [C]broken And it took the lad everything he had To G7keep the fire Cstokin' While [F]in the sky too [C]far away The [G7]rescue team were [C]seakin' A [F]signal wave that [C]might be traced The [G7]Hartwell's radio [C]beacon Chorus After nineteen days the aerial search Was [G7]said to be com[C]pleted Until someone cried, "They're still alive And the [G7]search must be re[C]peated." And the [F]day the beep was [C]finally heard Was the [G7]day we'll all re[C]member A [F]man was found [C]safe and sound On the [G7]9th day of De[C]cember. Hartwell said he should have died At [G7]35 below [C]zero And the reason Hartwell did survive The [G7]boy had died a [C]hero, "He [F]brought me food when I [C]couldn't move While [G7]he himself grew [C]feeble Yes, [F]Davy Koutouk [C]died a saint And a [G7]credit to his [C]people [F]Davy Koutouk [C]died a saint And a [G7]credit to his [C]people."
