Album: No Fences (1990)
  • January's always bitter
    But, Lord, this one beats all
    The wind ain't quit for weeks now
    And the drifts are ten feet tall
    I been all night drivin' heifers
    Closer in to lower ground
    Then I spent the mornin' thinkin'
    About the ones the wolves pulled down

    Charlie Barton and his family
    Stopped today to say goodbye
    He said the bank was takin' over
    The last few years were just too dry
    And I promised that I'd visit
    When they found a place in town
    Then I spent a long time thinkin'
    About the ones the wolves pulled down

    Lord, please shine, a light of hope
    On those of us who fall behind
    And when we stumble in the snow
    Could you help us up, while there's still time?

    Well, I don't mean to be complainin', Lord
    You've always seen me through
    And I know you got your reasons
    For each and every thing you do
    But tonight outside my window
    There's a lonesome mournful sound
    And I just can't keep from thinkin'
    About the ones the wolves pulled down

    Oh, Lord, keep me from bein'
    The one the wolves pulled down Writer/s: Stephanie Davis
