As recorded by BILL MONROE: Some folks like the summertime when 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 was on the ground I traced her little footprints in the snow I found her little footprints in the snow, Lord I bless that happy day that Nellie lost her way For I found her when the snow was on the ground (Instrumental Break) I dropped in to see her, there was a big round moon Her Mother said she'd just stepped, but'd be returning soon I found her little footprints and I traced them through the snow And I found her when the snow was on the ground Oh, I traced her little footprints in the snow I found her little footprints in the snow, Lord I bless that happy day that Nellie lost her way For I found her when the snow was on the ground (Instrumental Break) Now she's up in Heaven, she's with the angel band I know I'm gonna 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 Oh, I traced her little footprints in the snow I found her little footprints in the snow, Lord I bless that happy day that Nellie lost her way For I found her when the snow was on the ground *********** As recorded by ROSE MADDOX: Some folks like the summertime when they can walk about Strollin' through the meadow green, it's pleasant there's no doubt But just give me the wintertime when the snow is on the ground For he found me when the snow was on the ground He traced my little footprints in the snow He found my little footprints in the snow, Lord I bless that happy day when I did lose my way He found me when the snow was on the ground (Mandolin Solo) He dropped in to see me, there was a big round Moon Mother said I'd just stepped out, I'd be returning soon He found my little footprints, he traced them through the snow He found me when the snow was on the ground He traced my little footprints in the snow He found my little footprints in the snow, Lord I bless that happy day when I did lose my way He found me when the snow was on the ground (Steel Guitar Solo) Now he's up in Heaven, he's with an angel band I know I'm goin' to meet him in that happy land But every time the snow falls it brings back memories He found me when the snow was on the ground He traced my little footprints in the snow He found my little footprints in the snow, Lord I bless that happy day when I did lose my way He found me when the snow was on the ground ********** As recorded by MARTY ROBBINS: Well, some folks like the summertime when they can walk about Strollin' through the meadow green, well, it's pleasant there's no doubt But give me the wintertime when the snow is on the ground 'Cause I found her when the snow was on the ground I found her little footprints in the snow, Lord Found her little footprints in the snow, Lord Bless that happy day that Nellie lost her way 'Cause I found her when the snow was on the ground (Instrumental Break) When I dropped in to see her, was a yellow moon Her Mama said she'd just stepped, be returnin' soon I found her little footprints and I traced them through the snow And I found her when the snow was on the ground I found her little footprints in the snow I found her little footprints in the snow, Lord Bless that happy day that Nellie lost her way, why Because I found her when the snow was on the ground Well, now she's up in Heaven with an angel band I know I'm gonna see her in that promised land Ev'ry time the snow falls, well, it brings back memories For I found her when the snow was on the ground I found her little footprints in the snow, Lord Found her little footprints in the snow, Lord Bless that happy day that Nellie lost her way 'Cause I found her when the snow was on the ground *********** ALTERNATE VERSION: Some lovers like the summertime, when they can stroll about Spooning in the meadows may be grand without a doubt But give to me the wintertime, for the girl I have made mine Was captured while the snow was on the ground I traced her little footprints in the snow I traced her little footprints in the snow I bless that winter's day, when Nellie lost her way And I traced her little footprints in the snow I called to see the girl I loved one winter's afternoon But she had gone out walking, they informed me very soon They said she'd strolled away, but where they could not say So I started off to find her in the snow I saw her little footprint just outside the cottage door I traced it down a country lane, I traced it to the moor I found she'd lost her way; there she stood in blank dismay Not knowing where to steer for in the snow I called her, she saw me, and as we were walking home She promised me that never more without me she would roam I'm happy now for life, for her I've made my wife Whose footprints I traced plainly in the snow I traced her little footprints in the snow I traced her little footprints in the snow I bless that winter's day, when Nellie lost her way And I traced her little footprints in the snow ********** As re-written and recorded by RY COODER: Well, some folks like the summertime, they can walk about Strolling through the meadow green is pleasant there's no doubt But to me the wintertime is the best of all 'Cause 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 'Cause I found her when the snow was on the ground Now the Ladies Garment Workers walked out last wintertime One little union kitty was a dear sweetheart of mine She walked around all winter on the picket line But I found her when the snow was on the ground Now the Union strike committee didn't like me hanging round Don't interfere with sisters while the strike is on Don't go around behaving like a ring-tailed tom But I found her when the snow was on the ground 'Cause I traced her little footprints in the snow I found her little footprints in the snow And I bless that happy day when Nellie lost her way 'Cause I found her when the snow was on the ground (Instrumental Break) She's somewhere out there marching with a union band We'll get back together when the pension check comes in But every time the snow falls it brings back memories 'Cause 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 'Cause I found her when the snow was on the ground ********** (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - March 2011)
