    "Winter Song" Lyrics

    Bill Morrissey

    Smoke 'em if you got 'em
    You're not too far from the bottom
    and it's still so early in the day
    She told me what she taught 'em
    We're just halfway into autumn
    But when winter comes, it's here to stay

    The snow falls pretty and it covers up the ground
    and it hides
    what will not go away
    Down in the city she buys clothes by the pound
    just to fool me

    into thinking her way

    Come sing a winter tune
    a winter tune so gay
    It's too bad the check had to come so soon
    and I hear it's your turn to pay

    Well, her eyes were blue and her eyes were green
    and you never knew
    which ones you'd see
    They would stare through a film of cosmoline
    and they were always trained
    right on me

    She said he went insane
    in a Ford Fairlane
    parked beside a stand of hemlock trees

    They were safe out of the rain
    when he finally made his claim
    and he didn't ask and didn't say please


    There weren't nobody
    on that mountain road
    when you slide off deep into the snow
    Now the night is getting cold
    and has a very good hold
    with no reason to ever let go

    Your own Mother Earth wants to call you home
    and protect you
    from all harm
    She's so lonely in the night
    and if you only held her tight

    there'll be no need for alarm


    You never travel steerage
    when you're in a Boston marriage
    No matter what the people may say
    You found yourself a lover
    Drag her underneath the cover
    and show her where the hound dogs bay

    An after dinner cigarette
    another shot of anisette
    Adjust the seat in the Fairlane
    You gave them what they want
    in the finest restaurant
    and you didn't cry or didn't name names
