lyrics

I ran aground in the rainy northwest,
But northwest aint north enough for me
So I packed my bags, made a sideways egress
Cause no one can tell me where to be

Moving to Alaska where from the past I'm freed
Moving to Alaska where no one knows me
Nothing left to ask ya, we said all there is to say
Moving to Alaska where things will go my way

I want to perch in a bird's eye nest
Where all I see are hills of green
When summer sun turns to winter's test
I'll stick it out by fire's gleam

Moving to Alaska where hills are verdant green
Moving to Alaska where no one knows me
Nothing left to ask ya, we said all there is to say
Moving to Alaska where things will go my way

If she asks for whereabouts, say I can't be reached
Don't be swayed by screaming shouts, stand your ground for me
She'll move on before too long, and I will be redeemed
But whatever you say just please don't tell her I'm

Moving to Alaska where from the past I'm freed
Moving to Alaska where you can't find me
Nothing left to ask ya, we said all there is to say
Moving to Alaska where things will go my way
