Emmylou Harris ,,Roses in the Snow,,

OK Elsa,nog een ,,Snowsong,, voorlopig de laatste want morgen gaat het dooien.


Emmylou Harris & The Nash Ramblers -Roses in the Snow
Emmylou Harris op haar best,samen met die geweldige Nash Ramblers.
Het gelijknamige album is ook het beluisteren meer dan waard!

I met my darlin' in the springtime
When all the flowers were in bloom
And like the flowers our love blossomed
We married in the month of June

Our love was like a burning ember
It warmed us as a golden glow
We had sunshine in December
And threw our roses in the snow

Now God has taken my darlin'
And left me with a memory
A memory I will always cherish
Are these last words he said to me

Our love was like a burning ember
It warmed us as a golden glow
We had sunshine in December
And threw our roses in the snow

My darlin's buried on the hillside
Where all the wild spring flowers grow
And when winter snows start fallin'
On his grave I'll place a rose

Our love was like a burning ember
It warmed us as cold winds blow
We had sunshine in December
And threw our roses in the snow

Townes & Blaze - Snowin in Raton

Al die sneeuw werk inspirerend ,na het Snow in Aselmo van Van Morrison een andere mooie"Snowsong"Deze keer een van die andere geweldige singer/songwriter Townes van Zandt samen met Blaze Foley


Townes & Blaze Snowin on Raton

by Townes Van Zandt

When the wind don't blow in Amarillo
and the moon along the Gunnison don't rise
shall I cast my dreams upon your love, babe
and lie beneath the laughter of your eyes


It's snowin' on Raton
come morning I'll be through them hills and gone


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


Bid the years good-bye 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


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


Townes Van Zandt (7 maart 1944, Fort Worth, Texas - 1 januari 1997, Smyrna, Tennessee) was een folksinger-songwriter en dichter.




Blaze Foley (born December 18, 1949 in Malvern, Arkansas; died February 1, 1989 in Austin, Texas) was an American singer-songwriter.
