"Snow Deer" lyrics - BOB WILLS

"Snow Deer"

Sweet snow deer mine
Moon's a-shine through the pines
While Mohawks sleep
Let us creep through the vale

Your cowboy lover, your heart will cover
Don't hesitate, it is late, ponies wait
For you and me by the trees in the dale
Hear tom-toms beating, let's hit the trail

My pretty snow deer, say you will go, dear
From your side, I'll never part
Every trail leads to your heart

It's time to marry, no time to tarry
Let me carry you away from here
My sweet snow deer

The red men come
Bullets hum, there'll be some
Left on the trail, I can't fail, cling to me
We'll crown the story with love and glory

Now, after all must I fall, hear my call
And fly away while we may, can't you see?
Those ranch lights gleaming, safe there we'll be
