Johnny Cash – Saginaw Michigan tab
Originally by lefty frizzel A E A I was born in Saginaw, Michigan D A E I grew up in a house on Saginaw bay A D My dad was a poor, hard working Saginaw fisherman A E A too many times he came home with too little pay I loved the girl in Saginaw, Michigan The daughter of a wealthy, wealthy man But he called me "That son of a Saginaw fisherman" And I could end up to claim his daughter's hand. Chorus: D A Now I'm up here in Alaska looking around for gold E A like a crazy fool I'm diggin in these frozen grounds a cold D A But with each new day I pray I'll strike it rich and then E A I'll go back home and claim my love in Saginaw, Michigan I wrote my love in Saginaw, Michigan I said,"Honey, I'm comin' home please wait for me And you can tell your dad I'm comin' back a richer man I've hit the biggest strike in Klondike history." Her dad met me in Saginaw, Michigan He threw me a great big party with champagne And he said,"Son, you wise, young, ambitious man, Will you sell your father all your Klondike claim?" Chorus: Now he's up there in Alaska diggin' in the cold, cold ground The greedy fool is lookin' for the gold I never found It serves him right and no one here is missin' him At least not the newlyweds of Saginaw, Michigan. E A We're the happiest man and wife in Saginaw, Michigan E A He's ashamed to show his face in Saginaw, Michigan
