The Devil Went Up To Alaska

The Devil Went Up To Alaska

July 7, 2020

We decided to have a little fun and honor an American legend. Enjoy our little ditty, sung to the tune of “The Devil Went Down To Georgia.”

The Devil went up to Alaska

He was looking for some jobs to steal

He was in a bind, ‘cause he was way behind

And he was willing to make a deal.

When he came across this old man sippin a latte’, drinkin it hot

The Devil jumped on an oil barrel and said “Boy, let me tell you what…”


I bet you didn’t know it, but I’m a petrol lawyer, too,

And if you care to take a dare, I’ll make a bet with you.

Now you’ve made a lot of money, boy, but let’s finish your career with a flair

You can screw the industry one more time, let me tell you how and where.


The man said “my name’s Robin, and it might be a sin,

But let’s partner up, before this state becomes the best its ever been.”



Robin grab your eco friends, sing your B.S. like a bard

‘Cause oilfield workers know their day-to-day is hard.

If you lose, your friends will say “tough luck” as they buy a drink,

But if you win, jobs in oilfields will shrink!


 The Devil said to Robin “go ahead and start this show”

And they fired up a group to push their plan, let momentum grow.

They coerced voters, gathered signatures, all with an evil ‘hiss’

And when eco-extremists joined in, it sounded somethin’ like this.


But to the rescue OneAlaska formed sayin’ “You can’t ruin our state”

So sit right in that chair, the voters will crush you, you just wait, sayin:



Triplin’ the tax won’t fix this state

Voters will see through it, just you wait

Pickin’ on industry isn’t smart

PFDs won’t grow from this, don’t you start


 Come November 3rd, the Devil and Robin’s plan, it will be beat

And they’ll lay their campaign down, with another crushing defeat

Alaskans warned you of your loss, via in-person or on phone,

But we’ll tell you now, you son of a gun, leave the oil jobs alone.


 Repeat Chorus
