Christmas in Alaska

Christmas in Alaska is like no other
Oh, any airline, fly me back home
back home to Alaska
back to my warm cabin
under Denali’s great heights
and the northern lights
Even lays the new snowfall
out on the tundra
cold winds blow
across this great state
Cheers to the midnight sun
Cheers to the Eskimo
Cheers to Nome and to Juneau
To live and die here is my fate
to live and die here is my fate
My Alaska, my Alaska
home for Christmas and forever
My Alaska, my Alaska
forever and a day

Around America

From monuments to statues
the Brooklyn and Golden Gate bridges
and everything else around America
America is beautiful indeed
All languages spoken
every state and commonwealth represented
and all religions practiced
all free for you and for me
all free for you and for me
all around America
Let’s unite and work together as one
to keep her alive and well and free
free for you and for me
free for you and for me
Let’s unite and work together as one
around America again
around America again
around America again

The Rocky Mountains

While I was out flying one day
far below me arose
The Rocky Mountains
so awesome and so beautiful
so glorious and so grand
so high and so mighty
like sentries in line you stand
Braving winter’s bitter cold and snow
spring’s driving sheets of rain
summer’s blazing heat and sun
and the morning and evening chill
when autumn falls again
Oh, you splendid and superb and wondrous
Rocky Mountains

Christmas In New England

The beaches and boats in the harbor
are abandoned now
as snow begins to fall
weighing heavy on the limbs and lines
I hope they don’t break
And it’s Christmas in New England again
with traditions all their own
all changed forever by the new norm
Oh, the carolers still carol
and the church choirs still sing
Glory to the newborn king
now all together but all on screen
Skiers and snowboarders still race down
the snow covered hills
as skaters still skate on the frozen pond
just outside of town
Their masks in place
and distance they keep
just in case
And there is still room for you at
Ye Olde Maxwell Inn
so come on in, help yourself to
food and drink and warm your soles
by the fire in the fireplace
