It's snowing out there in the gloaming
I've sat here and watched it all night
The kids will be thrilled when they awaken
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 will grow
Cause I can't stand the thought of my darling
Lying there in the deepening snow

[ steel ]
Little Jimmy climbs up on my knee now
Saying mommie 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 is meant for his daddy
Lying there in the deepening snow

Won't you please make the winter go quick Lord...

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