                ***Chorus:
F          C      
Lost up in no-man's land
       G7             C     
In the Northwest Terri-tories
          F          C      
They were lost up in no-man's land
    G7              C      
The Marten Hartwell story
    G7              C       
The Marten Hartwell story
C
On November the 8th of '72
G7                  C   
North of the Arctic Circle
C
A plane took off from Cambridge Bay
        G7               C        
And the pilot's name was Hartwell
   F                 C      
He had to make it to Yellowknife
  G7                    C       
Al-though the night was stormin'
   F                    C                        
To save the lives of an Eskimo boy
      G7              C       
And a pregnant Eskimo woman.
C
"Oh, Mr. Hartwell," said the nurse
   G7                 C       
"I pray that you will guide us
C
To save this woman with her child
        G7              C       
And the boy with appendi-citis."
        F                     C      
But the wind, it blew and the storm, it grew
        G7           C       
And the signal of Kan-twoita        
     F                   C      
They missed by miles and flying wild
     G7                  C       
They crashed beside Lake Hota.

***Chorus
C
Now Judy Hill, the federal nurse
    G7             C       
She never lived to waken
C
And the life of the mother and her child
     G7              C       
Were both soon after taken
        F             C      
But the pilot woke to find himself
        G7              C       
And the Eskimo boy were livin'
F              C     
Left in pain be-side the plane
   G7                  C        
To search the skies of heaven.
C
Day by day the pilot lay
     G7              C       
With both his ankles broken
C
And it took the lad everything he had
   G7            C   
To keep the fire stokin'
      F              C      
While in the sky too far away
    G7               C       
The rescue team were seakin'
  F                C      
A signal wave that might be traced
    G7               C       
The Hartwell's radio beacon

**Chorus
C 
After nineteen days the aerial search
    G7            C       
Was said to be com-pleted
C
Until someone cried, "They're still alive
        G7               C       
And the search must be re-peated."
        F                C      
And the day the beep was finally heard
        G7              C       
Was the day we'll all re-member
  F             C      
A man was found safe and sound
       G7           C       
On the 9th day of De-cember.
C
Hartwell said he should have died
   G7       C       
At 35 below zero
C
And the reason Hartwell did survive
    G7             C       
The boy had died a hero,
    F                      C      
"He brought me food when I couldn't move
      G7              C       
While he himself grew feeble
     F            C       
Yes, Davy Koutouk died a saint
      G7            C       
And a credit to his people
F            C   
Davy Koutouk died a saint
      G7            C       
And a credit to his people."

***Chorus

***repeat last line of chorus slowly***
