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
