From PeteSeeger.net:

SNOW, SNOW
Words and Music by Pete Seeger (1964)
TRO - (c) 1965 (renewed) Melody Trails, Inc., NY

CHORUS: Snow, snow, falling down;
Covering up my dirty old town.

Covers the garbage dump, covers the holes,
Covers the rich homes, and the poor souls,
Covers the station, covers the tracks,
Covers the footsteps of those who'll not be back.

Under the street lamp, there stands a girl,
Looks like she's not got a friend in this world.
Look at the big flakes come drifting down,
Twisting and turning, round and round.

Covers the mailbox, the farm and the plow.
Even barbed wire seems — beautiful now.
Covers the station, covers the tracks.
Covers the footsteps of those who'll not be back.

A great song. I saw Pete play a couple of times many years ago. A guy I was friendly with way back then knew Pete quite well. Said he was one of the warmest most generous people he ever met, shy in some ways and very unassuming.

This is interesting- I'm sure many here know about Chordify, but it's the first I've seen it. http://chordify.net/chords/pete-seeger-snow-snow-n333k333
