Old Man Winter
Things haven't been the same since sunshine left town The days got shorter and the leaves all fell down The birds have all headed south, I thought of taking their advice Leave this old North Country leave this bed of ice The wind blows a bitter chill and water in my eyes Old Man Winter ain't no friend of mine Don't think for a second boy I'm still wet behind the ears I've been shoveling this same old shit for damn near 30 years That factory closed its doors 6 or 7 years ago Sent my dad to the unemployment line and his job down Mexico One day he went out for pack of smokes and my brother went off to war Now it's a few winters later and I ain't seen either no more So don't think for a second boy this is all new to me I'd love you to be the one who stays but you wouldn't be the first to leave If you think you're ready now to see another winter through I say get out your shovel boy cause we got some work to do
