CHRISTMAS EVE CAN KILL YOU (Dennis Linde) The Everly Brothers - 1972 The winter's flaking snow is brushing through the pinewood trees I stuck my hands down deep inside my coat I think of years ago and half remembered Christmas trees And faces that still warm me with their glow The cold and empty evening hangs around me like a ghost I listen to my footsteps in the snow The sound of one man walkin' through the snow can break your heart But stopping doesn't help, so on I'll go And Christmas Eve can kill you When you're trying to hitch a ride to anywhere The icy air I'm breathin' is all that keeps me on my feet I feel like I've been walking all my life A car goes running by, the man don't even turn his head Guess he's busy being Santa Claus tonight The saddest part of all is knowing if I switched with him I'd leave him stumblin' ragged by the road I'd ride that highway to the arms of my sweet family And forget about the stranger in the cold And Christmas Eve can kill you When you're trying to hitch a ride to anywhere And as I walk I'm singin' to myself, Oh Silent Night Hoping I can save those other souls Oh, God forgive the man who drives right by the other man Have pity on the stranger in the cold 'Cause Christmas Eve can kill you When you're trying to hitch a ride to anywhere (Transcribed by Bill Huntley & Mel Priddle - August 2005)
