"Blizzard" as written by and Louis ...
There's a blizzard comin' on, how I'm wishin' I was home
For my pony's lame and he can't hardly stand
Listen to that norther' sigh, if we don't get home we'll die
But it's only seven miles to Mary Anne

It's only seven miles to Mary Anne
You can bet we're on her mind, for it's nearly suppertime
And I'll bet there's hot biscuits in the pan
Lord, my hands feel like they're froze and there's a numbness in my toes
But it's only five more miles to Mary Anne

It's only five more miles to Mary Anne
That wind's howlin' and it seems mighty like a woman's screams
And we'd best be movin' faster if we can
Dan, just think about that barn with that hay so soft and warm
For it's only three more miles to Mary Anne

It's only three more miles to Mary Anne
Dan, get up you ornery cuss, or you'll be the death of us
I'm so weary but I'll help you if I can
All right Dan, perhaps it's best that we stop awhile and rest
For it's still a hundred yards to Mary Anne

It's still a hundred yeards to Mary Anne
Late that night the storm was gone and they found him there at dawn
He'd-a made it but he couldn't leave ol' Dan
Yes, they found him there on the plains, his hands froze to the reins
He was just a hundred yards from Mary Anne
He was just a hundred yards from Mary Anne

    General Commentthis is such a sad song... I remember listening to this song when I was a kid, and just imagining myself in this situation. The words are so visual, you can realy picture the scene with great detail. I just heard this song recently, and I still find it very sad and beautiful.
