"Shaking Out the Snow" as written by Nanci Griffith and James Hooker....
Snowing, through South Dakota I once drove,
With the wife of my best pal,
Who cloaks her heart from cold with gold.
It was well into the winter,
Of December in the cold.
Off to see Mount Rushmore,
Staring through the snow.
And to gamble with the boys of Deadwood as we drove.

Snowing, I am shaking out the snow.
Oh, the cold that is within my heart,
I'm gonna shake out all that snow.
Riding years ago,
Through the South Dakota roads.
When the laughter could thaw Enderby,
And shake me from the snow.
Like a hurricane through Florida,
I'll shake out all this snow.

Snowing, one Christmas morn' when I was four.
My brother told me it was warm,
So a swimsuit I adorned.
Then he sent me to the weather,
And behind me locked the doors.
A four year old in a swim suit,
And brand new plastic skates.
Out into the snow to catch this cold,
I cannot shake.

Snowing, I am shaking out the snow.
Oh, the cold that is within my heart,
I'm gonna shake out all that snow.
Riding years ago,
Through the South Dakota roads.
When the laughter could thaw Enderby,
And shake me from the snow.
Like a hurricane through Florida,
I'll shake out all this snow.

Snowing, yeah, it snows in Tennessee.
The place where I now make my life.
Is still snowing down on me.
I'd prefer Antarctica,
Perhaps the land of Enderby.
Where the weather is my heart,
And I'm closer to the sea.
Since I cannot ever seem to shake,
The snow out of me.

Snowing, I am shaking out the snow.
Oh, the cold that is within my heart,
I'm gonna shake out all that snow.
Riding years ago,
Through the South Dakota roads.
When the laughter could thaw Enderby,
And shake me from the snow.
Like a hurricane through Florida,
I'll shake out all this snow.

And all across the states you see,
The tractors and the ploughs.
Clearing out the roads,
And the bridges north and south.
Something they did learn,
And I just don't seem to know,
How to clear a passage,
And shake out all the snow.
