The Blizzard

Song Author Harlan Howard Performer: Jim Reeves Submitted by: Anonymous
[G]There's a blizzard coming on  how I'm [C]wishing I was [G]home
for my pony's lame  and he can hardly [D7]stand
Listen [G]to that norther sigh  if we [C]don't get home we'll [G]die  
But it's [D7]only seven miles to Mary [Em]Ann's
It's [D7]only seven miles to Mary [G]Ann's

You can bet we're on her mind  for it's [C]nearly suppe[G]r-time
And I'll bet there's hot biscuits in the [D7]pan   
Lord my [G]hands feel like there froze  and there's a [C]numbness in my [G]toes
But it's [D7]only five more miles to Mary [Em]Ann's
It's [D7]only five more miles to Mary [G]Ann's

That wind's howling and it seems mighty [C]like a woman's [G]scream
And we'd best be moving faster if we [D7]can   
Dan just [G]think about that barn with the [C]hay so soft and [G]warm
For it's [D7]only four more miles to Mary[Em] Ann's
It's [D7]only three more miles to Mary [G]Ann's

[G]Dan get up you ornery cuss or [C]you'll be the death of [G]us  
I'm so weary but I'll help you if I [D7]can   
Alright [G]Dan perhaps it's best if we [C]stop a while and [G]rest
For it's [D7]still a hundred yards to Mary [Em]Ann's
It's [D7]still a hundred yards to Mary [Em]Ann's

Late that night the storm was gone [C]they found him there at dawn [G]    
He'd made it but he just couldn't leave old [D7]Dan   
Yes they [G]found him there on the plains [C]hands froze to the [G]reigns
He was [D7]just a hundred yards form Mary [Em]Ann's
He was [D7]just a hundred yards from Mary [G]Ann's

There's a blizzard coming on  how I'm wishing I was home
for my pony's lame  and he can hardly stand
Listen to that norther sigh  if we don't get home we'll die
But it's only seven miles to Mary Ann's
It's only seven miles to Mary Ann's

You can bet we're on her mind  for it's nearly supper-time
And I'll bet there's hot biscuits in the pan
Lord my hands feel like there froze  and there's a numbness in my toes
But it's only five more miles to Mary Ann's
It's only five more miles to Mary Ann's

That wind's howling and it seems mighty like a woman's scream
And we'd best be moving faster if we can
Dan just think about that barn with the hay so soft and warm
For it's only four more miles to Mary Ann's
It's only three more miles to Mary Ann's

Dan get up you ornery cuss or you'll be the death of us
I'm so weary but I'll help you if I can
Alright Dan perhaps it's best if we stop a while and rest
For it's still a hundred yards to Mary Ann's
It's still a hundred yards to Mary Ann's

Late that night the storm was gone they found him there at dawn
He'd made it but he just couldn't leave old Dan
Yes they found him there on the plains hands froze to the reigns
He was just a hundred yards form Mary Ann's
He was just a hundred yards from Mary Ann's
