or
Leon Russell

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
