January’s always bitter,
But Lord this one beats all
The wind ain’t quit for weeks now,
And the drifts are ten feet tall
I been all night drivin' heifers
Closer in to lower ground
Then I spent the mornin' thinkin'
'Bout the ones the wolves pulled down.

Charlie Barton and his family
Stopped today to say goodbye
He said the bank was takin' over,
The last few years were just too dry
And I promised that I’d visit,
When they found a place in town
Then I spent a long time thinkin'
'Bout the ones the wolves pulled down.

Lord, please shine a light of hope
On those of us who fall behind.
And when we stumble in the snow,
Could you help us up, while there’s still time?

Well, I don’t mean to be complainin' Lord,
You’ve always seen me through
And I know you got your reasons
For each and every thing you do
But tonight outside my window,
There’s a lonesome mournful sound
And I just can’t keep from thinkin'
'Bout the ones the wolves pulled down.

Oh Lord, keep me from bein'
The one the wolves pull down.
