Winnipeg Waltz

from by Owen Temple

lyrics

Two frozen rivers with ice like boulders
Cracking past Portage and Main
Dark downtown buildings, one glowing tavern
Breaking loose from winter's chains

Winter wind whistling the outside air
Inside it's like we found summer somewhere
My car's all rusted from road crew salt
And doing the Winnipeg waltz

Railroads and water, Assiniboine and Red,
The reasons why we're here
The center of the continent, the middle of it all
Hanging out and drinking beer

It's too cold to snow now but we don't care
Inside it's like we found summer somewhere
My car is all rusted from road crew salt
And doing the Winnipeg waltz

I love you more in the frozen winter
I think about you beneath your clothes
lets have one more drink in this crowded tavern
I'll kiss your chilly lips and your frozen nose

Winter wind whistlin' the outside air
Inside it's like we found summer somewhere
You won’t turn to a pumpkin or a pillar of salt
From doing the Winnipeg waltz
