I'm looking for the words to an old song that is a companion piece to "Redwing" -- It's called Snowdeer and the chorus goes something like

My little Snowdeer, say you will hold dear,

From your side I'll never part, every trail leads to your heart.....

Thanks for your help.

I've learned this as an instrumental and only recently heard the words. Its on t he tape "Over the Edge" by Mountain Fling (700 Tower Rd, Christianburg, VA 24073) . The words go by so fast I had trouble understanding them all, but here's how it sounds. If anyone has corrections, please post them. Snow Deer Sweet Snow Deer mine, moon will shine through the pine while Mohawk sleeps; Let u s creep to the vale, your cowboy lover, your heart will cover, Don't hesitate; it is late, ponies wait for you and me by the tree in the valley Come cease sleepin g. Let's hit the trail. (Chorus) My pretty Snowdeer say you'll go, dear; From your side I'll never part; Every trail leads to your heart. It's time to marry, no time to tarry. Let me ca rry you from here, my sweet Snow Deer

The red men come, let them come, there'll be some left on that trail let itself unto me prolong the story with love and glory. And after all you may call, may we come and fly away while we may. Don't you see those red lights gleaming, Safe t here we'll be.

First verse begins with words Snow Deer only once. I tried to post the title on a separate line but it didn't work.

Thanks, those words help. I have heard it for years as a fiddle tune, but only heard someone sing the words a few years ago.
