CABIN IN THE VALLEY (Kix Brooks / Kenny "Boudro" Gray) Brooks & Dunn - 1996 Today I climbed the hillside with the snowcapped evergreens Stared down in the valley at a Christmas memory Saw a young boy in a cabin hang a stockin' on a peg Peace on Earth was ours down in the valley Christmas dinner's cookin', the turkey's golden brown There's a big old fire ablazin', all the family's gathered 'round There was nothin' quite as pretty in the cities or the towns As my cabin in the valley when the snow is on the ground Mama still still plays carols on those worn out ivory keys And Papa's hooked his old team up to fetch the Christmas tree I watch my boy climb on a limb, shakin' loose the mistletoe Just the way I did not so long ago Christmas dinner's cookin', the turkey's golden brown There's a big old fire ablazin', all the family's gathered 'round Well, there's nothin' quite as pretty in the cities or the towns As my cabin in the valley when the snow is on the ground Christmas dinner's cookin', the turkey's golden brown There's a big old fire ablazin', all the family's gathered 'round Well, There's nothin' quite as pretty in the cities or the towns As my cabin in the valley when the snow is on the ground (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - October 2005)
