FOOTMARKS IN THE SNOW
 
div
 
Some lovers like the summer time when they can stroll about
Spooning in the meadows may be grand without a doubt
But give to me the winter time, for the girl I have made mine
Was captured while the snow was on the ground.

Chorus: I traced her little footmarks in the snow.
I traced her little footmarks in the snow
I bless that winter's day when Nellie lost her way
And I traced her little footmarks in the snow.

I called to see the girl I loved one winter's afternoon
That she had gone out walking, they informed me very soon
They said she'd strolled away, but where, they could not say
So I started off to find her in the snow.

Chorus:

I saw her little footprint just outside the cottage door
I traced it down a country lane, I traced it to the moor
I found she'd lost her way, there she stood in blank dismay
Not knowing where to steer for in the snow.

Chorus:

I called her, she saw me, and as we were walking home
She promised me that never more without me would she roam
I'm happy now for life, for her I've made my wife
Whose footmarks I traced plainly in the snow.

Chorus:
