Em          C             G
  Hey sweet Annie, don't take it so bad
D                              A7
 you know the summer's coming soon
           C               D            Bm             C
though the interstate is choking under salt and dirty sand
        Am                               C
and it seems the sun is hiding from the moon
 
G            C             D          G
 Your daddy told you when you were a girl
     Bm                                     C
the kind of things that come to those who wait
    C         G          C            G
so give it a rest girl, take a deep breath girl
     Am                        C
and meet me at the Bay State tonight
 
----------
Chorus:
 
      D                    C                G
The snow is coming down on our New England town
    D                          Am    
and it's been falling all day long
  C           D     C           Em
what else is new?, what could I do?
    C                                     G
I wrote a valley winter song to play for you
----------
 
G Bm C C  (x2)
 
Em           C            G 
  And late December, can drag a man down
D                          A7
 you feel it deep in your gut
C               D                 Bm              C  
 short days and afternoons spent pottering around
      Am                                   C
in a dark house with the windows painted shut
 
G          C         D         G
 Remember New York staring outside
Bm                              C
 as wreckless winter made its way
 
  C         G             C           G
from Staten Island to the Upper West Side
Am                                 C
whiting out our streets along the way
 
----------
Chorus 2:
 
      D                    C                G
The snow is coming down on our New England town
    D                          Am    
and it's been falling all day long
  C           D      C        Em
what else is new?, what can I do?
     C                                       G
but sing this valley winter song I wrote for you
