Footprints In The Snow

Footprints In The Snow

Escrita por Rupert Jones (Bill Monroe)

Interpretada por Buddy & Bob

Clásico del Bluegrass popularizado por Bill Monroe, aunque con un origen presumiblemente anterior, y objeto de múltiples versiones desde 1945, Buddy y Bob lo incluyeron en su repertorio y dejaron registrada una temprana versión en la que, a pesar de la mala calidad sonora, puede apreciarse la creciente competencia instrumental y en las armonías vocales de ambos.

Now some folks like the summertime

When the they can walk about

Strolling through the meadow green

It's pleasant there's no doubt

But give me the wintertime

When the snow is on the ground

For I found her when the snow on the ground

 

I traced her little footprints in the snow

I found her little footprints in the snow

I bless that happy day when Nellie lost her way

For I found her when the snow was on the ground

 

I dropped in to see her

There was a big round moon

Her mother said she just stepped out

But would be returning soon

I found her little footprints

And I traced them in the snow

I found her when the snow was on the ground

 

I traced her little footprints in the snow

I found her little footprints in the snow

I bless that happy day when Nellie lost her way

For I found her when the snow was on the ground

 

Now she's up in heaven she's with the angel band

I know I'm going to meet her in that promised land

But every time the snow falls it brings back memories

For I found her when the snow was on the ground

 

I traced her little footprints in the snow

I found her little footprints in the snow

I bless that happy day when Nellie lost her way

For I found her when the snow was on the ground
