Snows are a-falling on Douglas Mountain
Snows are a-falling so deep

Snows are a-falling on Douglas Mountain

Putting all the bears to sleep / Putting the bears to sleep

Trimming the wicks on Douglas Mountain
Shining my chimney so bright (Shine IN my chimney so bright?)
Trimming the wicks on Douglas Mountain
So God can bring the night /
So God can bring the night

Rise Up Singing lyrics not in the Raffi Singable Songbook (read: apocryphal):

Cedars are a-growing on Douglas Mountain
Cedars are a growing so high
Cedars are a-growing on Douglas Mountain
Joining the earth to the sky / Joining the earth to the sky

Sun's going down on Douglas Mountain
The night's are so long and so cold
Sun's going down on Douglas Mountain
And I am feeling old / And I am feeling old

It's a peaceful Christmas eve at home here in Bangkok. I hope you're all enjoying yourselves too, wherever you are.
