SONG: SNOWIN ON RATON
ARTIST: TOWNS VAN ZANDT

Note: Ther weren't any accurate tabs out there showing how Towns played it
      This is the way Towns plays it on the youtube videos I've watched
       Sometimes he sings the chorus once between verses, sometimes twice
       Should be finger picked using alternating bass line with thumb.

CAPO 2ND


  D            A                   D
Well when the wind don't blow in Amarillo,
    A                                 D
And the moon along the Gunnison don't rise,
   G                              D
Shall I cast my dreams upon your love babe,
     D             A                 D
And lie beneath the laughter of your eyes.

CHORUS:
      D      G    D         G
It's snowin' on Raton..., come morning,
         A                     D
I'll be through them hills and gone.

A, D

D     A                                D
Oh Mother thinks the road is long and lonely,
      A                                        D
Little brother thinks the road is straight and fine,
   G                                            D
Well little darling thinks the road is soft and lovely,
  D                   A                  D
I'm thankful that old road's a friend of mine.

CHORUS:   THEN A,D

D     A                                     D
Ah, bid the years good-bye, you cannot still them,
       A                                D
Well you cannot turn the circles of the sun,
  G                                        D
Well you cannot count the miles until you feel them,
  D                 A               D
And you cannot hold a lover that is gone.

CHORUS:  THEN A,D

D      A                               D
Well, tomorrow the mountains will be sleeping
  A                             D
Silent beneath a blanket green and blue
   G                                     D  
Ah but I shall hear the silence they are keeping
  D                 A             D
I'll bring all their promises to you.

CHORUS: x2 (repeat the last line of the course at the end)
