Old Man Winter

oh winter why d'you last so long

why d'you keen and howl 

why d'you grieve and growl

why d'you last so long

oh winter why d'you snow so deep

cold as the crypt

and white as a sheet

why d'you snow so deep

 

you have my submission 

there's no need to be so fierce

and if you want to ruin me

oh winter

you're halfway there

 

oh winter what d'you want from me

i've got nothing you crave 

i've got nothing you need

what d'you want from me

 

oh winter what have you done to me

i'm not the woman

i used to be 

what have you done to me

 

i am a sinner

with much to answer for

how can i wash my sins away

with winter

howling at my door

 

oh sister can you hear my voice

there's a fire in the grate

and a place for you to stay

oh sister can you hear my voice

oh sister can you hear my voice

above the keening winter gale

i will sing for you 

so you will know the way
