Footprints in the Snow

Footprints in the Snow

     C
Now some folks like the summertime
               F
When they can walk about
G7
Strolling through the meadow green
               C
It's pleasant there, no doubt

But give me the wintertime
                       F
When the snow is on the ground
    G7                             G7C
I found her when the snow was on the ground.
(Chorus)
    C                         G7
I traced her little footprints in the snow
                         C
I found her little footprints in the snow
                              F
Bless that happy day when Nellie lost her way
    G7                          C
I found her when the snow was on the ground.
I went out to see her
There was a big, round moon
Her mother said she just stepped out
But would be returning soon
I found her little footprints
And I traced them in the snow
I found her when the snow
Was on the ground.

Now she's up in heaven
She's with the angel band
I know I'm going to meet her
In that promised land
Everytime the snow falls
It brings back memories
I found her when the snow
Was on the ground.
