    Lyrics

    Snowing through South Dakota I once drove
    With the wife of my best pal
    Who cloaks her heart from cold with gold
    It was well into the winter
    Of December in the cold
    Off to see Mount Rushmore staring through the snow
    And to gamble with the boys of Deadwood
    As we drove

    Snowing, I am shaking out the snow
    Oh, the cold that is within my heart
    I'm gonna shake out all that snow
    Riding years ago
    Through the South Dakota roads
    When the laughter could thaw Enderby
    And shake me from the snow
    Like a hurricane through Florida
    I'll shake out all this snow

    Snowing, one Christmas morn' when I was four
    My brother told me it was warm
    So a swimsuit I adorned
    Then he sent me to the weather
    And behind me locked the doors
    A four year old in a swim suit and brand new plastic skates
    Out into the snow to catch this cold
    I cannot shake

    Snowing, I am shaking out the snow
    Oh, the cold that is within my heart
    I'm gonna shake out all that snow
    Riding years ago
    Through the South Dakota roads
    When the laughter could thaw Enderby
    And shake me from the snow
    Like a hurricane through Florida
    I'll shake out all this snow

    Snowing yeah, it snows in Tennessee
    The place where I now make my life
    Is still snowin' down on me
    I'd prefer Antarctica
    Perhaps the land of Enderby
    Where the weather is my heart and I'm closer to the sea
    Since I cannot ever seem to shake the snow
    Out of me

    Snowing, I am shaking out the snow
    Oh, the cold that is within my heart
    I'm gonna shake out all that snow
    Riding years ago
    Through the South Dakota roads
    When the laughter could thaw Enderby
    And shake me from the snow
    Like a hurricane through Florida
    I'll shake out all this snow

    All across the states you see
    The tractors and the plows
    Clearin' out the roads
    And the bridges north and south
    Something they did learn
    And I just don't seem to know
    How to clear a passage
    And shake out all the snow
