  1. Blue Snow

From the recording Midnight at the Hilltop Hotel

Twenty eight inches of snow in March.

Lyrics

Well the kid's gone acting crazy 'bout seventeen.
He's all full of piss and vinegar man
And he's out there on the scene.
I can only hope he remembers wrong from right.
'Cause it's a real rough ride for a lonesome child
In the beginning of his lifetime of those
(Chorus)
Long and really cold hard winters.
The snow so deep its heart is chilly blue.
And kids well they don't know about the snow.
You pile it deep enough you pile it long enough,
When it’s deep they're gonna know.
Well the cook stove is holding last night's beans.
I'm eating from the can again,
'Cause that's the way I've always been.
And it's another barley breakfast for God's own drunk.
Well it's a real rough ride for a lonesome guy,
In the middle of the month of March and
(Chorus)
Man it's been a really long hard winter.
The snow so deep her heart is chilly blue.
And old folks they know all about the snow.
You pile it deep enough you pile it long enough,
When its gets deep that's how they know.
Well I will lay me down now 'cause I'm just tired.
I've carried this shovel 'round the whole damn world,
I walked a real high, real live wire.
And I have laughed and I have cried and I have sworn.
On the inside I'm all fired up but the outside just all
worn out from those...
(Chorus)
Long and really cold hard winters.
The snow so deep its heart is chilly blue.
And old folks they know all about the snow.
You pile it deep enough you pile it long enough,
When its deep you're gonna know.
