David Houston - Saginaw Michigan Lyrics

David Houston Lyrics

Saginaw Michigan Lyrics
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
