Snowshoe Thompson
Recorded by Johnny Horton
Written by Paul Howard and Buddy Ebsen

C G7
In 1855 in old California
C
A man was a looking in the paper one day
F
Uncle Sam needs a postman to carry the mail
C G7 C
Through the High Sierra Mountains over God forsaken trails

G7
Snow Shoe Thompson told 'em he swore he was the man
C
I'll get through them mountains if anybody can
F
He took a pair of snowshoes he took a pair of skis
C G7 C
And led out through that mountains where a normal man would freeze

F C
He was cautious as a mountain cat fleet as a deer
F C
Tough as a grizzly bear he knew no fear
F
He lived a life of danger bringin' mountain people news
C G7 C
Cause Snow Shoe Thompson packed the mail on through

G7
In the High Sierra Mountains it was 32 below
C
Blue blizzard fairly whistled bringin' 40 feet of snow
F
No one dared to venture on the slippery mountain trails
C G7 C
But Snow Shoe kept a comin' he was packin' US mail

G7
His face was weather beaten from his many rugged miles
C
But he knew it was worth it when he'd see the people smile
F
His deeds are not forgotten they stay in the Hall of Fame
C G7 C
They stay in old Squaw Valley to Snow Shoe Thompson's name

Repeat #3
