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 And 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 a digging in this 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 And you can tell your dad I'm coming home a richer man I've hit the biggest strike in Klondike history" Her dad met me in Saginaw Michigan He gave me a great big party with champagne Then he said, "Son, you wild young ambitious man Will you sell your father-in-law your Klondike claim" Now he's up there in Alaska digging in the cold cold ground The greedy fool is a-looking for the gold I never found It serves him right and no one here is missing him Least of all the newly weds of Saginaw Michigan We're the happiest man and wife in Saginaw Michigan He's ashamed to show his face in Saginaw Michigan
