Riding down Slow / on this Mountain road
From Bristol Tennessee down to Oak Hill /

we claimed we’d seen the light / Each show and night
Please hold me tight / There ain’t no light for me, oh minnie

Chorus:

Well the
sky is slowly fading
I’m so lonesome I could cry
All I can see / from my backseat laid down
Is snow and sky and pine

The Cadillac is climbing / up the hill
/ Trying to take me home /But
I’m here still

What goes up / must come back down
What was lost can still be found
Safe and sound

Chorus

Starting every morning
With sleeping pass the noon
Another state / same state of mind
same snow and sky and pine

Chorus

Outro

"Snow and Sky and Pine" is a song inspired by the tragic story of how music legend Hank Williams died in the backseat of his car on his way between gigs. Being so loved yet being so alone. The dream isn’t always what it seams to be. Too many creative souls has fallen victim to burnout and addiction when becoming a commodity of an industry. Hank Williams wrote the country hit “I saw the light” but at the end of his life, as he sank into depression, he said to his Minnie “There ain’t no light for me”.
