Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Searching for winter themed ballads.
Canadians often have a vivid image of winter;

River – Joni Mitchell
It's coming on Christmas, They're cutting down trees.
Putting up reindeer, Singing songs of joy and peace,
Oh, I wish I had a river I could skate away on.

Snow – Jesse Winchester - resident in Canada
I was tuning in the six o’clock newscast
When the weatherman mentioned snow
As soon as I heard that four letter word
I was making my plans to go

Someday Soon – Ian Tyson
So blow you old Blue Norther, blow my love to me

Calgary – Ian Tyson
Drive me to the airport, 'cause my baby's waiting
Way up north in Calgary the ice is breaking
Color that jet plane going, color me gone
Down on the Gulf of Mexico with the sunlight shifting
I was playing cards and losing while the blizzard's drifting
In Calgary she's waiting, all alone

Song for a Winter’s Night – Gordon Lightfoot
The fire is dying now, my lamp is growing dim
The shades of night are liftin'
The mornin' light steals across my windowpane
Where webs of snow are driftin'
