Can anyone settle an argument between me and the wife?

Does anyone have or know the proper lyrics to SKI-ING IN THE SNOW?

The Invitations copy |I have is slightly muffled and Wigans Ovation seem to be making them up!

The Wigan Ovations version

Verse 1

Days are growing colder, snow's a fallin upon the hill.

I gotta get my gear out ready for the winter's chill

You know my wood pickin' fire's gonna fasten me down,

And the wood that I chop that­s really gonna run on down.

Chorus

Run on down, ski-ing in the snow

In the up down ski-ing in the snow

And that night we all stayed warm in the cabin below,

Though we've been buried my love,

There Loss Is Greater I know.

( with my baby, good lookin' baby)

Verse 2

And did you see the snow man with a couple of skiers all around,

Movin' down the mountain everybody's putting me down.

(all around up and down, up and down)

You know I got to go climb to the top of the hill,

And make it all the way down beside of her still.

Repeat Chorus

Verse 3

With that girl that I love tellin' me she loves me so,

And i'm a winter fool, let her go into his arms

(with my baby good lookin' baby)

Down, ski-ing in the snow

Run on down ski-ing in the snow

Run on down ski-ing in the snow (repeat to fade)

The Invitations version (the differences):

In the first chorus the last two lines are:

Though we've been buried, my love,

There's nothing greater I know.

In Verse 2 they sing:

And did you see the snow man with a couple of skiers all around,

Movin' down the mountain there's nobody putting me down.

(all around up and down, up and down)

a crowd will be there to the top of the hill

and they get all the way down without a spill

In the second chorus the last two lines are:

I'll be there with my love

There's nothing greater i know

Verse 3 they sing:

With that girl that I love tellin' me she loves me so,

we'll have a wonderful warm love in the winter I know

(come on baby, kiss me baby)

Come Down, ski-ing in the snow

Run on down ski-ing in the snow (repeat to fade)

Hope this helps Tommo.

INVITATIONS:-

Day's are growing cold

The snows a- piling up on the hill
I gotta get my gear out ready for a winter spill
You know my wood pickin' fire's gonna fasten me down,
And the wood that I chop 's really gonna run on down.
Chorus
(Run on) Down ski-ing in the snow
Its a-all around ski-ing in the snow
 
And at night we'll all stay
Warm in the cabin below 
Though we've been buried my love,
There's nothing greater I know.
 
Good looking baby
(Good looking baby)
 
And did you see a snowman with a couple skiers around,
(all around, upward bound, yet in town)Yeah
Movin' down the mountain, there's nobody putting me down.
(all around, upward bound, yet in town)Yeah
a crowd will be climbed to the top of the hill
and make it all the way down without a spill
 
(Repeat Chorus)
 
 
And at night we'll all stay
Warm in the cabin below 
ll be in there with my love
There's nothing greater I know
Good looking baby
 
Baby
(down)
 
With that girl that I love tellin' me she loves me so,
we'll have a wonderful warm love all the winter we know
Good looking baby (Good looking baby)
Come Down, ski-ing in the snow

Baby, Run on down, ski-ing in the snow

 

Not here to start an argument but the phrases in italics are not right and the only ones I'm not sure of. Wigan's Ovation version is so different it'll take me another week so Merry Christmas!
