Donna Reed

Donna Reed

There’s children singing carols
On the street beside my house
They’re out spreading Christmas cheer
And I could use some right now

Winter always takes me back
To the time where we first met
When our lives were full of hope
We didn’t know better yet

Chorus:
It was Christmas Eve
The night we said our good byes
The snow was falling hard outside
And there was coldness in your eyes
You said Santa Claus never brought us what we need
You went looking for Jimmy Stewart
I went looking for Donna Reed

You went back home to Texas
Where it never ever snows
I wound up here in Nashville
Where the winters are too cold

I sent you a Christmas card
It came back address unknown
I even tried to call you
Your roommate said you’d moved on

Bridge:
I hope you finally found your Jimmy
I gave up on Donna years ago
These days I think a wonderful life
Is nothing but an old TV show

Chorus:
It was Christmas Eve
The night we said our good byes
The snow was falling hard outside
And there was coldness in your eyes
You said Santa Claus never brought us what we need
You went looking for Jimmy Stewart
I went looking for Donna Reed
