I know that spring is comin’ boys,
let me tell you what I've seen
The grass on the slopes north of the house
has started turning green.

The snowdrift out behind the barn is
Fast meltin’ away,
The cows are keepin' their heads down,
nibbling a little more each day.

I know that spring is comin' boys,
let me tell you what I've heard.
The spring peepers calling from the sloughs
And today this little bird

Perched on a limb and filled the air
with a joyous spring time song
That seemed to loosen my old, cold bones
knowin' spring's comin' won't be long.
