Song For A Winter's Night
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(G) The lamp is (D) burning low u(Em)pon my table (C) top
The (G) snow is (D) softly (G) falling (D)
The (G) air is (D) still in the (Em) silence of my (C) room
(G) I hear your (D) voice softly (G) calling
If I could (D) only (C) have you (D) near
(Bm) To breathe a (Em) sigh or (Am) two (D)
(G) I would be (D) happy just to (Em) hold the hands I (C) love
(G) On this (D) winter night with (G) you

The smoke is rising in the shadows overhead
My glass is almost empty
I read again between the lines upon each page
The words of love you sent me
If I could know within my heart, that you were lonely too
I would be happy just to hold the hands I love
On this winter night with you

The fire is dying now, my lamp is growing dim
The shades of night are lifting
The morning light steals across my windowpane
Where webs of snow are drifting
If I could only have you near, to breathe a sigh or two
I would be happy just to hold the hands I love
(G) And to be (D) once again with (B7) you (Em)
(G) On this (D) winter night with (G) you
