Strangest thing - I had this running through my head this morning.


WALKING THROUGH YOUR TOWN IN THE SNOW
(Bruce "Utah" Phillips)

I'm walking through your town in the snow,
I'm walking through your town in the snow,
I got no place to go, all the trains are running slow
And I'm walking through your town in the snow

I carry my home on my back,
I carry my home on my back,
But the police only frown, every time I lay it down,
And I'm walking through your town in the snow

Don't these little winter towns all look the same,
Don't these little winter towns all look the same,
The freezing winds may blow, and the mission doors are closed
And I'm walking through your town in the snow

It's getting late and all the bars are closed,
It's getting late and all the bars are closed,
It's so cold that I can't think, and I could really use a drink
And I'm walking through your town in the snow

There's some fellas jungled up in the yard,
There's some fellas jungled up in the yard,
They're cook'in up down there, but I've nothing I can share
And I'm walking through your town in the snow

Maybe I could rustle up a job,
Maybe I could rustle up a job,
But there's nothing I could do, my best working days are through
And I'm walking through your town in the snow

Don't think I'll ever find my way back home,
Don't think I'll ever find my way back home,
I can see my golden years, shinning through the frozen tears

I'm walking through your town in the snow,
I'm walking through your town in the snow,
I got no place to go, all the trains are running slow
And I'm walking through your town in the snow
