"The Big Snow" as written by and Robert Halligan Jr.....
There was no love between John and Joe
If one said stop, well the other said go
Darts of hate shot across the road
Until the big snow
It came like rain but seven feet high
the phone rings John, please! Joe’s wife cried
Its hard to hate when you cant see the sky
Thats when you really know

That the big snow will make you brothers
The big snow will show the way
You learn fast to love each other
When you can’t say no
to the big, big, big, big snow

Joes wife says Come quick! John says What for?
She says A wall of ice is at our front door!
My Joe pushed and pushed, and he collapsed on the floor!
Curse this big snow!
Said John “Hang on, Ill be right there
Shovel squeals, his lungs scream for air
I must push on, but Lord Im scared!
Sometimes you have to go

Cause the big snow will make you brothers
The big snow will show the way
You learn fast to love each other
When you can’t say no
to the big, big, big, big snow

Johns life flashed before his eyes
Recalls the flood of 55
Somehow that time, we all survived
Why not the big snow?
Well he found the door, and he broke on through
And with Johns help, old Joe came to
Joe looks up and smiles and says Who invited you?
Thats when you really know

That he big snow will make you brothers
The big snow will show the way
You learn fast to love each other
When you can’t say no
to the big, big, big, big, big, big, big, big, big, big, big, big snow
