Snowy and cold. This song rolled out of me in about half an hour. First take recording. I may revisit the song and add harp. But I kind of like it simple.

Goodbye, baby. I gotta leave your town. (x2)
And go down home where folks like having me around.

I'm going down home, where the snow don't fly. (x2)
I'll miss you. And that's no lie.

I tried up here. In this cold northern town.
I need sunshine, baby. And folks who want me around

You could come with me, but you say you can't. (x2)
Mmmmm Mmmmm Mmmm.

I'm going down home, where the snow don't fly. (x2)
I'll miss you, baby. And that's no lie.

Thanks, Patrick.  Yup.  I am a bit weary of hibernating inside.   I think you may get your wish tomorrow.  Warmer and light snow.  Hi to Janet.

Sounding good John! I like that style of finger picking too!

Hopefully we can get out of this deep freeze soon, I'd almost prefer some snow and warmer temps than this bitter cold crap. Stay warm :-)
