Cooder, Ry - Footprints In The Snow Lyrics




Well, some folks like the summertime they can walk about
Strolling through the meadow green it's pleasant there's no doubt
But to me the wintertime is the best of all
'Cause I found her when the snow on the ground

Now, I traced her little footprints in the snow
I found her little footprints in the snow
I bless that happy day when Nellie lost her way
'Cause I found her when the snow was on the ground

Now the Ladies Garment Workers walked out last wintertime
One little union kitty was a dear sweetheart of mine
She walked around all winter on the picket line
But I found her when the snow was on the ground

Now, the Union Strike Committee didn't like me hangin' round
Don't interfere with sisters while the strike is on
Don't go around behaving like a ring-tailed tom
But I found her when the snow was on the ground

'Cause I traced her little footprints in the snow
I found her little footprints in the snow
And I bless that happy day when Nellie lost her way
'Cause I found her when the snow was on the ground

She's somewhere out there marching with the union band
We'll get back together when the pension check comes in
But every time the snow falls, it brings back memories
'Cause I found here when the snow was on the ground

I traced her little footprints in the snow
Yah, I found her little footprints in the snow
I bless that happy day when Nellie lost her way
'Cause I found her when the snow was on the ground

  3. Daydreams of a Vintage Girl

    Such a cute little song :) I honestly hadn't ever heard this one before, and my local community radio station played it near Christmas a few days ago. Glad I ran across it! I love the accordion in this :)

  4. Manon Coppens

    I found my doggy in the woods in the midst of winter, in France, hungry, 9 months old... I bless that happy day when she lost her way 'cos we found her when the cold was in the woods. And I cannot resist it when it snows, to walk on singing this song while photographing her little footprints in the snow.

    As a hardcore fan of Cooder how can I miss this album I'm at a loss. The only area he hasn't yet invading is classics I presume and please don't tell me I'm wrong. This is a serendipity thing for me. On top of that your video is astonishing. Thanks a lot.

  6. bluesharp59

    Ry cooder is so cool . thanks for this great video. liked also.

  7. Llygadydydd

    Thank you, glad you like Ry's music.

    You're right, the font I used is one of my favourites... and you'll find it in mostly all of my channel videos except an older re-upload of mine.

    Sometimes people take videos from others and post them as their own as you know. So some time ago I recognized one or two of my uploads on other channels through this font. They took them without asking... I wasn't amused at all.

  8. Llygadydydd

    I'm delighted that you enjoyed the video. Thank you for watching.
