Girl in Saskatoon Lyrics

(Johnny Cash - Johnny Horton)
© '60 House Of Cash, BMI / Unichappell Music, BMI

I left a little town a little south of Hudson Bay
I couldn't find a thing to make a rounder want to stay
I fought the wind across the barren waste and the crystal dunes
Goin' for to marry the girl from Saskatoon

I'm glad I realized that no one could take her place
My heart was beatin' for her like the winter beat my face
But knowin' that I'd see her made my spirit bright as June
I'm freezin' but I'm burnin' for the girl in Saskatoon

South and west and followin' the cold December sun
I bedded down in the caragana when my daily trek was done
Then up and pressin' onward by the light of the morning moon
A prodigal returnin' to the girl in Saskatoon

Then I found a trail that had packed beneath the snow
I made the final miles where the prairie lilies grow
A steeple on a church glistened by the prairie moon
I'm freezin' but I'm burnin' for the girl in Saskatoon

But my journey was forgotten when I held her in my arms
My wonderlust was stifled by possession of her charms
And kneeling neath the steeple where we couldn't wait till June
I found eternal spring with the girl in Saskatoon
