I've always liked the song "Haulin in the Wood" that appeared on the album "Old Wood and Winter Wine" by Bill Staines and Guy Van Dusen 1977. I would like to sing it at our Soltice celebration, but I no longer have access to my old vinyl and it doesn't seem to be available anywhere.
And amazingly, I can't find the lyrics anywhere. Can anyone help me out?

I couldn't find a recording of Bill Staines singing this, but I found this on Spotify. I hope it serves the purpose.
HAULING IN THE WOOD
As sung by Bridget Ball & Christopher Shaw on "Mountain Snow and Mistletoe" (1991)
1. Temp'rature's down; there's a change in the weather
And the snow's comin' in just as light as a feather,
And the stove-side's warm; you couldn't feel better
When you're livin' like you think you should.
All my friends gather in around the old pot-belly
Singin' old-time songs, "Let the sun shine, Nelly."
Keepin' warm in the corner is my old dog Bailey,
And I'm haulin' in the wood.
CHORUS: And I got enough time for some peace of mind.
It's more than I've had for a long, long time.
Set yourself down; have some winter wine
While I'm haulin' in the wood.
2. Drop a log on the fire; stomp your feet on the floor.
Watch the flames jump high; keep the winter from the door.
Smell the smoke in the air; hear the good oak roar.
It's a thing that gets you feelin' mighty good.
It's cold in the mornin' with the fire down low.
It's up and out early, lordy, don't you know
That the sun's comin' up with a cold mornin' glow
And I'm haulin' in the wood. CHORUS
3. It all the simple livin'; it's the takin' things slow,
The choppin' an' the splittin' in the soft fallin' snow,
The fire in the evenin' with the warm yellow glow
Gets you thinkin' that you're livin' like you should.
There's a reason to my life: a heart full o' cheer,
An arm full o' oak an' some hickory here,
A good woman's voice makin' music in my ear,
And I'm haulin' in the wood. CHORUS TWICE
