GUEST,Matt_R Lyr/Chords Req: Teardrops Falling in the Snow (11) Lyr Add: TEARDROPS FALLING IN THE SNOW (McCarty) 26 Mar 01


Page by page our lives are written
In the Master's book above
Wonder if he makes an entry
For each darlin' mother's love
Like the one I saw this mornin'
In her though the station door
She was cryin', softly cryin'
Teardrops falling in the snow

As she came up to the window
Passing me, I let her through
She was waiting for a casket
One draped in red white & blue
Then she said "I'll wait outside, Sir
Soon I know you're train will blow"
I could see her through the window
Teardrops falling in the snow

Then the whistle of the engine
Broke the silence of the air
As the train was slowly stopping
Upon her lips I saw a prayer
On the box there was a number
And the name was right below
As she looked upon the casket
Teardrops falling in the snow

There's a new-made grave a-waiting
And it's depths are dark and cold
Just to claim this mother's darlin'
War for her has taken toll
But I'm sure they'll meet up yonder
Where God's children always go
And I always will remember
Teardrops falling in the snow
