Chet Atkins, best known as a guitar player and music producer, actually sang this song somewhere along the way in his career. Would anyone have the words??

Aha! Found it!

I Still Write Your Name in the Snow
(Chet Atkins and Billy Edd Wheeler)

I'm almost sorry now I caught you messin' round,
You packed up your pickup and boogied out of town;
Well, darlin', I thought you'd like to know,
That I still write your name in the snow.

When the snowflakes fall, I always see
The happy you and me that used to be.
And when the snow has covered all the ground,
I hear your name, and have to write it down.

Well, do you think of me when you're feelin' low,
And wish you could write my name in the snow?

Once I had an inklin' that you'd come back again;
I see now that I was just tinklin' in the wind.
You hurt me more than you will ever know,
But I still write your name in the snow.

When the snowflakes fall, I'll always see
The happy you and me that used to be.
I write your name as pretty as can be,
But it's hard to dot the "i" and cross the "t."

Do you think of me when you're feelin' low,
And wish you could write my name in the snow?

Sonofagun, I'm tired of livin' this way,
I'm mighty down. (last line unclear)


transcribed by ear from the Milestones Complilation CD, by Billy Edd Wheeler

Irreverent as it may be, I can't see that song title without wondering what he's writing in the snow with.

One farmer came over another in chuch and advised the second that he wanted his son to stop bragging about seeing his daughter.
The second asked how he knew it was his son.
The first replied that the son spelled the name in urine and he recognized the handwriting.

Last line: "Son-of-a-gun, I'm tired of living this way, God-a-mighty-damn." It's a typical I-IV-V chord country song.

Chet must have been influenced by this song: I'LL STILL WRITE YOUR NAME IN THE SAND by Buddy Starcher.

This may have been a sequal to "I Traced Her Little Footsteps through the Snow" and "Rain and Snow."

I was wondering myself about the font color and the writing instruement.

"I can't see that song title without wondering what he's writing in the snow with."
Maybe this - from Vance Randolph's 'Pissing in the Snow and other Ozark folktales.
Jim Carroll

Told by Frank Hembree, Galena, Mo., April, 1945. He heard it in the late 1890's. J. L. Russell, Harrison, Ark., spun me the same yarn in 1950; he says it was told near Green Forest, Ark., about 1885.

One time there was two farmers that lived out on the road to Carico. They was always good friends, and Bill's oldest boy had been a-sparking one of Sam's daughters. Everything was going fine till the morning they met down by the creek, and Sam was pretty goddam mad. "Bill," says he, "from now on I don't want that boy of yours to set foot on my place."
"Why, what's he done?" asked the boy's daddy.
"He pissed in the snow, that's what he done, right in front of my house!"
"But surely, there ain't no great harm in that," Bill says.
"No harm!" hollered Sam. "Hell's fire, he pissed so it spelled Lucy's name, right there in the snow!"
"The boy shouldn't have done that," says Bill. "But I don't see nothing so terrible bad about it."
"Well, by God, I do!" yelled Sam. "There was two sets of tracks! And besides, don't you think I know my own daughter's handwriting?"

It's hard to imagine anyone not familiar with the joke singing the song. And it's a bit surprising how well-known the joke became throughout rural America.
