Leon Russell Footprints In The Snow

Some folks like the summertime when they can walk about

Strolling through the meadow green, it’s pleasant there’s no doubt

But give me the wintertime when the snow is on the ground

For I found her when the snow was on the ground

I traced her little footprints in the snow

I found her little footprints in the snow, Lord

I bless that happy day that Nellie lost her way

For I found her when the snow was on the ground

I dropped in to see her, there was a big round moon

Her Mother said she’d just stepped, but’d be returning soon

I found her little footprints and I traced them through the snow

And I found her when the snow was on the ground

Oh, I traced her little footprints in the snow

I found her little footprints in the snow, Lord

I bless that happy day that Nellie lost her way

For I found her when the snow was on the ground

Now she’s up in Heaven, she’s with the angel band

I know I’m gonna meet her in that promised land

But every time the snow falls it brings back memories

For I found her when the snow was on the ground

Oh, I traced her little footprints in the snow

I found her little footprints in the snow, Lord

I bless that happy day that Nellie lost her way

For I found her when the snow was on the ground
