Snowfall in Alabama

(Brian Hendrix)

This song is about a woman who just started a happy life with her husband, when he was sent off to war and never came home. She's shattered and turn, but she learns to appreciate the beauty in the small things in life. No one ever heals from that sort of tragedy, but she learns to cope and figures out ways to still let the happiness in.

She sat and watched the snowfall, down in Alabama It's something you just don't see every year Rare like a tame crow, that sits there at a window Looks heavier when viewing it through tears Memories that take shape; shadows of a love lost Come creeping 'cross the fields of frosted wheat Warming up her cold heart; reflections in the pane That she runs out there to chase in her bare feet (Chorus) Snowfall in Alabama Usually melts before it lands And there's no use trying to save it Just enjoy it while you can On days like these, far and between She holds out her little hand Snowfall in Alabama Makes her want a second chance She remembers how he touched her before they sent him over there How she felt so safe and loved and so complete How he promised her forever, but then it went away Brought the castle walls clean down from underneath Others tried to look upon her, to see her through the darkness A few XXXX XXXXXXX XXXXXXX XXXX XXXXX XXX XXX XXXXX XXX XXX XXXXXXXX XXXXXX XX XXXXXXXX XXXXXX XXXX X XXXXX XXXXX XXX XXX XXXX XXXXX XXXXXXX XXX XXXXX XXXXX XXX XXXXXXXX XXXXXXXX XXX XX XXXXX XXXX XXXXXXX XXX XXXX XX XXXXX XXX XXXX XXXX XXX XXX XXXX XX X XXXXXXXXXXX XXXXXX XXXXXXX XXXX XXXXXXXX XXX XXX XXXXXXXX XXX XXXX XXXXXXXX XXX XXX XXX XXXXXXX XXX XXXXXXXXX XXXX XX XXXXXXX XXXX XXXXXXXXX XXX XXXX XXXXX XXX XXXXX XXXX

Without You

By Brian Hendrix


I knew a girl once, went to school with her, same neighborhood, and she was typically miserable. 'Til she broke up with her man, then she became the strongest person around. I really think this song encapsulates the growth that a "nothing to lose" attitude can have on you, though it's also deeper than that - it touches on the dissonance of love and loss. We all know that feeling where you feel stronger on your own, but still like part of you is with that other person. You still cling onto the way that person made you feel at the best of times, and you live with that. Indefinitely. This one here, which I wrote just before winter '19, is in my top-10 list of personal favorites. Reading it bereft the melody, might take a few tries to figure out how the syllable emphasis works out in the chorus, but it works perfect once you find it.

Save Tonight

By Brian Hendrix


I'm near 40, wrote this one in my early 20s, and it was my first contest placement. A buddy of mine named Leroy was a songwriter, and one day I brought him my stuff. He said he liked it, but my verses were too long, like pages - like Bob Dylan thought "Maybe these songs aren't long enough." And he said I should hone things down, so this is the first song I ever wrote in the typical accepted format. It's just about a busy couple who don't have time to spend together, so they decide to make the time.

The Right Foot

By Brian Hendrix


The colloquial, catchy phrase people love to use is the "wrong foot," suggesting a bad first step into something that doesn't turn out well. Well, what if you got off on the right foot? Imagine how better things could be.

Hang with You

By Brian Hendrix


Liked a girl once. Thought she was awesome. She wanted to be friends. I just wanted a chance to hang out with her. Wrote this for her. Turns out, she wasn't awesome. Such is life. The song's good, though, at least. I consider it a top 20.

Der erste plattdeutsche Songtext hier muss natürlich ein Seemannslied, ein Shanty, sein. Der Text schildert das Leben an Bord eines Segelschiffes.
