The Lyrics

Last week, LittleCupCakes suggested I do this about the "Iditarod"..an annual dogsled team race across Alaska...so, here it is, LCC (It started on Saturday, March 1'st...winning time last year was 8 days, 22 hours...so, someone should have won it over the weekend)
Way up north, (Fast Through Alaska)
Way up north, (Fast Through Alaska)
Fast Through Alaska,
Away up north, the race is on
Fast Through Alaska,
Away up north, the race is on

The teams start in Willow...every year, first week of March
They cross frigid country..where wild wolves howl and arch
Along the Bering Sea coast..in a land where few men trod
To those white Nome mountains,..and it's called the Iditarod

It's Alaska's great tradition,..that began in "Seven-Three"
Fifty teams, a thousand huskies run,..every team has a wish to be
Arrivin' first with the fastest time,..when the long gruelin' trek is done
Gotta' make it in less than nine days...for a chance to have it won

While the gale winds are blowin'
Strong Huskies keep goin'
Fast Through Alaska
Away up north, the race is on

Way up north, (Fast Through Alaska)
Way up north, (Fast Through Alaska)
Fast Through Alaska,
Away up north, the race is on
Fast Through Alaska,
Away up north, the race is on

Blizzards and white outs..await all the teams
Wind chill's less one hundred,..but it cannot freeze their dreams
Through frost lidded eyes,..they view the Northern Lights
And strive to keep their bodies warm..'gainst a bitter wind that bites

'Cause a man's gotta do what..his heart tells him to do
The ultimate grand challenge..for animals, too
So, mush, mush you Huskies,..there's no time to roam
The days and nights are mountin',..and we gotta' be first in Nome..

Tired Huskies are mushin'
On dogsleds they're rushin'
Fast Through Alaska
Away up north, the race is on
Fast Through Alaska
Away up north, the race is on

Way up north, (Fast Through Alaska)
Way up north, (Fast Through Alaska)
Way up north, (Fast Through Alaska)

The ~Iditarod~ will end late Mar 10 or early 11. Lance MacKey(37 yrs) is in the lead, with Jeff King(51yrs) in second. MacKey has won the 25th annual ~YUKON Quest ~ Fairbanks to WhiteHorse, Yukon in February, of which he is a 4-time champion! He is also a cancer survivor!
