The Blizzard
recorded by Jim Reeves
written by Harlan Howard

G                                     C             G
There's a blizzard coming on  how I'm wishing I was home
for my pony's lame  and he can hardly stand
       G                           C                    G
Listen to that norther sigh  if we don't get home we'll die
         D7                       Em
But it's only seven miles to Mary Ann's
     D7                       G
It's only seven miles to Mary Ann's
                                        C           G
You can bet we're on her mind  for it's nearly supper-time
And I'll bet there's hot biscuits in the pan       
        G                                          C              G
Lord my hands feel like there froze  and there's a numbness in my toes
         D7                           Em
But it's only five more miles to Mary Ann's
     D7                           G
It's only five more miles to Mary Ann's
                                        C              G
That wind's howling and it seems mighty like a woman's scream
And we'd best be moving faster if we can
         G                              C               G
Dan just think about that barn with the hay so soft and warm
         D7                          Em
For it's only four more miles to Mary Ann's
     D7                            G
It's only three more miles to Mary Ann's
G                             C                      G
Dan get up you ornery cuss or you'll be the death of us
I'm so weary but I'll help you if I can
        G                           C                G
Alright Dan perhaps it's best if we stop a while and rest
         D7                            Em
For it's still a hundred yards to Mary Ann's
     D7                            Em
It's still a hundred yards to Mary Ann's
                                   C                            G
Late that night the storm was gone they found him there at dawn
He'd made it but he just couldn't leave old Dan
         G                             C                  G
Yes they found him there on the plains hands froze to the reigns
       D7                             Em
He was just a hundred yards form Mary Ann's
       D7                             G
He was just a hundred yards from Mary Ann's
