Snowplow Blues

Charles Suddeth

I got the snowplow blues,

Let me tell you the news,

Stuck in this awful snow,

I got nowhere else to go.

I got the snowplow blues,

Just waiting for the crews,

I’ve never been this cold,

Let me give you the clues,

Hey, I done lost my gal,

She used to be my pal.
