Winter Will Take Me Away by Phil Underwood Six inch of ice, four feet of snow Boats locked in the cut, no place to go No work for the men, no food for the kids Winter will take me away I lie in my cabin, I shiver and shake No wood for the stove, no fire can I make I try to get warm but I'm failing, I quake Winter will take me away Once a young boatman so proud and so bold My loved passed away, now I am old My toes and my fingers are stiff with the cold Winter will take me away Autumn a far distant memory long gone Spring a far distant hope will not come I shall not hear the cuckoo, nor feel the warm sun Winter will take me away Winter will take me today I'd like to thank Phil Underwood for giving me permission to reproduce his lyrics and use his recording of this excellent song. Phil is a playwright/musician who tours two canal based shows : Roses and Castles and Canals of Old England which are well worth looking out for.
