At The First Fall Of Snow

Brothers Osborne

I talked with a stranger so sad and forlorn
His garments were sack cloth all tattered and torn
He told me a story of sorrow and woe
His heart went to heaven at the first fall of snow

He spoke of his angel a dear baby girl
He loved every footstep he loved every curl
But she went to heaven just one year ago
The angels came for her at the first fall of snow

He still have the dolly the one that she used to love
He held and caressed it and he gazed up above
He whispered my darling you're waiting there I know
I'll bring you your dolly at the first fall of snow

And there as I listened my eyes filled with tears
I know she was part of his happier years
His frail bady trembled he spoke soft and low
I'll be with my darling at the first fall of snow

I just couldn't tell how I felt inside
I patted his shoulder my feeling's too high
He smiled as we partred cause he didn't know
That we both lost our baby at the first fall of snow
