lyrics

'Winter'

Winter, winter is comin'
Leaving no place to hide
Winter, winter is comin'
Better put the cattle inside
Winter, winter is comin'
Heavy on the heels of Fall
Winter, winter is comin'
Listen to the raven call

Winter, winter is comin'
Storm clouds fill the sky
Winter, winter is comin'
Stack the chestnut high
Winter, winter is comin'
Sinners make thy peace
Winter, winter is comin'
The father don't make no backdoor deals

Now I'm a hardworking man do you understand?
Feel the callouses on my hands
But no amount of sweat and blood
Could ever build the life we had
So I write her songs when the days are long
And leave them by the tree
But no amount of poems can rewrite this tragedy

Winter, winter is comin'
Coming in the dark of night
Winter, winter is comin'
Lock the deadbolt tight
Winter, winter is comin'
Coming for the young and old
Winter, winter is comin'
Followers cross your weary souls

Now I'm a well tempered man do you understand?
Mild and civilized
But I curse the icy hand that stole my darling bride
I'm God-fearing too in that Sunday pew
I know my bible page for page
But no amount of praying
Is gonna raise her from that grave

Winter, winter is comin'
Blowing the bluebird south
Winter, winter is comin'
Blowing the smile right off my mouth
Winter, winter is comin'
To cover the world in haze
Winter, winter is comin'
I won't see sun for a hundred days

Now I'm sharp as a tack got a barrel of facts
But one question haunts my mind
Who in all of God's great kingdom want to take a poor farmer's wife?
So I sip red wine in the evening time and shine to help me sleep
But no amount of drinking's gonna save me from these dreams

Winter, winter is comin'
Coming like a burning train
Winter, winter is comin'
The wild winds and the freezing rain
Winter, winter is comin'
Coming if you're ready or not
Winter, winter is comin'
Coming down like the hand of God
