lyrics

oh Alaska, oh Alaska
with your sad August song
summer's ending, my sweet Alaska
winter will be long

you played your part, Alaska
when you held my heart

oh the eagle, oh the eagle
breath in your wings
follow the Kenai, my brave eagle
see what it brings

counting stars, Alaska
thought they were ours

the deepest ocean, the deepest ocean
I have ever known
dark waters of your ocean
drench my soul

but you held me close, Alaska
when the waves did roll

but oh Alaska, oh Alaska
with your sad August song
summer's over, my sweet Alaska
now that you're gone

did you know, Alaska
a year ago
that you'd go?
