Deepening Snow

Song Author Harlan Howard Performer: Connie Smith Submitted by: Anonymous


[C]It's snowing out there in the gloaming
I've sat here and watched it all [F]night
The [G7]kids will be thrilled when they waken
And look at the fields deep and [C]white


But the snow makes me think of my darling
For he hated the snow and the [F]cold
Now [G7]he lies in a grave back in Knoxville
With a headstone that's just one year [C]old  


Won't you please make the winter go quick Lord
So the flowers around him can [F]grow
For [G7]I can't stand the thought of my darling
Lying there in the deepening [C]snow


Little Jimmy climbs up on my knee now
Saying mommy what causes the [F]snow
And [G7]I tell of the wonderful father
Who cares for us all here [C]below


Then I hold him so close and I kiss him
And he kissing back doesn't [F]know
That [G7]my kiss is meant for his daddy
Lying there in the deepening [C]snow


Won't you please make the winter go quick Lord
So the flowers around him can [F]grow
For [G7]I can't stand the thought of my darling
Lying there in the deepening [C]snow

[G7]Out there in the deepening [C]snow

It's snowing out there in the gloaming
I've sat here and watched it all night
The kids will be thrilled when they waken
And look at the fields deep and white

But the snow makes me think of my darling
For he hated the snow and the cold
Now he lies in a grave back in Knoxville
With a headstone that's just one year old

Won't you please make the winter go quick Lord
So the flowers around him can grow
For I can't stand the thought of my darling
Lying there in the deepening snow

Little Jimmy climbs up on my knee now
Saying mommy what causes the snow
And I tell of the wonderful father
Who cares for us all here below

Then I hold him so close and I kiss him
And he kissing back doesn't know
That my kiss is meant for his daddy
Lying there in the deepening snow

Won't you please make the winter go quick Lord
So the flowers around him can grow
For I can't stand the thought of my darling
Lying there in the deepening snow

Out there in the deepening snow
