Deep Water Ice And Snow   Don Edwards




This is a great song. The verses are more of a talkin part, then sing the
chorus lines

Deep Water, Ice and Snow    4/4      Don Edwards;

(C) Deep water, (F) ice and snow
And with a (G) thousand cattle, (C) we had to go
To get the cattle to the (F) other side
You can (G) bet your life we had to (C) ride

(C) Now the railroad was (F) but a mile away
But (G) some men and horses (C) would die that day
We held the herd on a (F) ridge close by
As (G) the north wind blew (C) the snowflakes by

(C) Well we were all chilled (F) our bodies thru
But (G) from cold or fear, (C) nobody knew
So we lit us a smoke and (F) we watched her blow
Now (G) slack your cinches, (C) we gotta go

(C) Deep water, (F) ice and snow
And with a (G) thousand cattle (C) we had to go

(C) Well I pointed the men and (F) we hit her fast
But (G) our luck by now was (C) a fadin fast
That man was a talkin (F) from down below
As (G) my horse and I were (C) next to go

(C) Well my horse turned over and (F) I floated free
But (G) the waves was so high, (C) I couldn't see
Then my horse swam by and (F) I grabbed his tail
He (G) dragged me outa that (C) icy hell

(C) Deep water, (F) ice and snow
And with a (G) thousand cattle (C) we had to go

(C) Well I'll never forget (F) that terrible day
When (G) grown men cried and (C) I heard some pray
We crossed the cattle (F) to the other side
Just (G) to save a (C) vain mans pride

(C) Well the hell I've seen was (F) mighty cold
But (G) the other kinds worse (C) or so I'm told
Well I just hope (F) when I have to go
It (G) ain't in deep water, (C) ice or snow

(C) Deep water, (F) ice and snow
And with a (G) thousand cattle (C) we had to go
To get the cattle to (F) the other side
You (G) can bet your life we had to (C) ride
