Tammy Wynette The Deepening Snow Lyrics

Last updated: 02/21/2011 10:00:00 AM

It's snowing out there in the gloaming
I've sat here and watched it all night

The kids will be thrilled when they waken
And look at the fields deep and white

But the snow makes me think of my darling
For he hated the snow and the cold

Now he lies in a grave back in Knoxville
With a headstone that's just one year old

Won't you please make the winter go quick Lord
So the flowers around him can grow

For I can't stand the thought of my darling
Lying there in the deepening snow

Little Jimmy climbs up on my knee now
Saying mommy what causes the snow

And I tell of the wonderful father
Who cares for us all here below

Then I hold him so close and I kiss him
And he kissing back doesn't know

That my kiss was meant for his daddy
Lying there in the deepening snow

Won't you please make the winter go quick Lord
So the flowers around him can grow

For I can't stand the thought of my darling
Lying there in the deepening snow

Lying there in the deepening snow

Thanks to P Holz for submitting The Deepening Snow Lyrics.
