Snow, snow, snow, snow, snow -

A  E7    D9  A     D9    E7   AM7 F#m  D9  C#m7-5 F#7
It won't be long before we'll all be there  with snow;

Bm7-5 E7/9            D Cdim  A        F#m       D9   E7   A
Snow, snow, I wanna wash my hands, my face and hair with snow.

 A        E7  D9   A   D9 E7   AM7 F#m  D9 C#m7-5 AM7 F#7
Snow...I long to clear a path, and lift a   spade of snow;

Bm7-5  E7     D   E7  D  Cdim  A    F#m    E7/6 E7   A
Snow,  oh, to see a great big man entirely made of snow.

E7    A           Cdim  Bm7-7         E7
Snow, where it's snowing all winter through,

 D9            Cdim    A
That's where I want to be;

F#m               C#m7-5            D9
Snowball throwing, that's what I'll do;

Bm7-5     B7       E7   Cdim   E7
How I'm longing to ski through the

 A     E7    D9   Fdim   A
Snow, snow, snow, snow, snow,

A       E7    D9  A     D9  E7  AM7  D9 A  F#m  C#m7-5 F#
Those glist'ning hou - ses that seem to be built  of  snow;

Bm7-5  E7     D  Fdim E7       D       E7     Fdim     A
Snow, oh, to see  a  mountain covered with a quilt of snow.

E7       Fdim          A    A7
What is Christmas with no snow?

E7       Fdim           A   E7
No white Christmas with no snow.

 A    D9   Fdim   A

    C#m7-5     E7                  Cdim    AM7
I'll soon be there with snow, I'll wash my hair with snow,

   Bm7-5     F#7              C#m7-5  F#7  C#m7-5  B
And with a spade of snow, I'll build a man that's made of snow;

   Bm7-5     E7     Cdim      E7   Bm7-5  E7    Cdim   E7
I'd like to stay up with you, but I recommend a little shut-eye --

Fdim  F#7         E7   D9  A     D9    Dm6   A
Go to sleep, and dream of snow, snow, snow, snow.

Thanks to recent visitor Charlie S., for this suggestion, and for pointing me back to a movie that produced several members of this group of additions.

*I had never known it, but Vera Ellen never actually sang in the 1954 film. Thanks to recent visitor Diana Carreiro, I learned that Ellen's parts were actually performed by two individuals. Though uncredited officially, the solo vocal parts generally attributed to Vera Ellen in the film were actually voiced by Trudy Stevens. Another vocalist, Gloria Wood, sang "background vocals" for Ellen in group numbers.
