by Sleddoggin Staff on April 18, 2012

Yukon Quest – song – won a YQ song contest back in the early 1990′s. On the album, “Out of the shadows” by David Ruthstrom and Jeannie Robertson 1995 (rare) Ruthstrom and Robertson Haven’t heard about R&R in about a decade – would like to hear any news. Lyrics: It’s twenty below, out here In the snow, But it’s fifty below deep inside me my heart feels as cold As the Yukon River flow Whose frozen memories remind me Of the ones who carried the mail Down these trails, singin’ We ain’t chainin’ up, We’re drivin’ on, boys, We ain’t chainin’ up We’re drivin’ on. (Chorus) And here’s to the snow-blind heroes, Frontier pioneers- all crazy at best Who challenge the country ‘Cross the Northwest, Out on the Yukon Quest, Out on the Yukon Quest. My team is “tough-tires” and Strong, We’ve trained hard and long For the slowest is as fast as we’ll run. In that cut-band downstream, Sleepin’ cold, I dreamed Of the red lantern waitin’ when I’m done. But if it’s Fairbanks or Whitehorse My team will take me home, Cuz we ain’t chainin’ up, We’re drivin’ on, boys, We ain’t chainin’ up We’re drivin’ on. (Chorus) A thousand reasons why These volunteers and I, Are out here on These Northern Parallels. When it’s all said and done, Our race has just begun, And the legends of The Midnight Sun will tell Of the ones who came To challenge themselves, singin’ We ain’t chainin’ up, We’re drivin’ on, boys, We ain’t chainin’ up We’re drivin’ on. (Chorus) And here’s to the ones Who challenge themselves – Out
