INTRO:(Spoken, ad lib.)
(Capo First fret for original.)
A few years ago there lived a lover
by the name of Jimmy Jones..
who really snowed the girls and left them cold,
and gained the title of 'The Great Snowman.'

I remember the day, when the snow melted away.
And the Great Snowman was wed.
He said, yes, I do..
and little Linda said it too,
E B E B
and the Great Snowman was we..eh..eh..ed.
Now, Jimmy Jones was the Snowman's name,
he put all the other local lovers to shame.
He had good looks and a big fine car,
And went around breaking all the girlie's hearts.
Until one day the Great Snowman found,
Linda Lou, who started melting him down..
He bought a ring and they set the day
B B7 B
and the Great Snowman started melting away.
Now, the Great Snowman and his loving spouse,
live in a little sub-division house.
They got six kids and his mother-in-law,
and expecting another kiddie in the Fall.
His old Cadillac needs the paint retouched,
it's full of baby diapers and bottles and such,
F# B B7 B
the Great Snowman has outgrown..all his flashy Caddy clothes.
