Snowing On Raton

Song Author Townes Van Zandt Performer: Emmylou Harris Submitted by: Anonymous
[C]Well when the [G7]wind don't blow in Ama[C]rillo
And the [G7]moon along to Gunnison don't [C]rise
Shall I [F]cast my dreams upon your [C]love babe
And lie beneath the [F]laughter of your [C]eyes

My [G7]mother thinks the road is long and [C]lonely
[G7]Little brother thinks the road is straight and [C]fine
Little [F]darling thinks the road is soft and [C]lovely
I'm thankful that old [F]road is a friend of [C]mine

Well it's snowing [F]on Ra[C]ton  
Come [G7]morning I'll be through them hills and [C]gone

I'll [G7]bid the years goodbye you cannot still [C]them
You [G7]cannot turn the circles of the [C]sun  
You [F]cannot count the miles until you feel [C]them
And you cannot hold a [F]lover that is [C]gone

Well [G7]tomorrow the mountains will be [C]sleeping
[G7]Silently the blanket green and [C]blue
Oh but I [F]shall hear the silence they are [C]keeping
I'll bring all their [F]promises to [C]you  

It's snowing [F]on Ra[C]ton  
Come [G7]morning I'll be through them hills and [C]gone
Snowing [F]on Ra[C]ton  
Come [G7]morning I'll be through them hills and [C]gone

Well when the wind don't blow in Amarillo
And the moon along to Gunnison don't rise
Shall I cast my dreams upon your love babe
And lie beneath the laughter of your eyes

My mother thinks the road is long and lonely
Little brother thinks the road is straight and fine
Little darling thinks the road is soft and lovely
I'm thankful that old road is a friend of mine

Well it's snowing on Raton
Come morning I'll be through them hills and gone

I'll bid the years goodbye you cannot still them
You cannot turn the circles of the sun
You cannot count the miles until you feel them
And you cannot hold a lover that is gone

Well tomorrow the mountains will be sleeping
Silently the blanket green and blue
Oh but I shall hear the silence they are keeping
I'll bring all their promises to you

It's snowing on Raton
Come morning I'll be through them hills and gone
Snowing on Raton
Come morning I'll be through them hills and gone
