Alaska


I think I'll move to Alaska.
I hear it's much cooler there.
Lot's of wide open spaces
With no people everywhere.

I think I'll move to Alaska.
Up where the north wind does blow.
Find a deep old empty cave
And sit and watch the snow.

I think I'll move to Alaska.
I want to get out of this town.
Away from people, places, things
All that's getting me down.

I think I'll move to Alaska.
To just run away from home.
It's one of those days all year long
And I want to be alone.

(1974)
