Lyrics

First there was a winter's night
He thought it such a lovely sight
Snow upon his door step
And hanging from the trees
First there was a winter's night

It was 1941
Their little marriage just begun
I think his name was Greenberg
There's no one here to say
It was 1941

And there's nothing prepares us
For what life puts before us
Sometimes crying's really all
We can do

These handsome boys strode in
Beat him in his own kitchen
Stripped his wife of everything
And left her on the floor
When those handsome boys strode in

They took him to a train
Handsome boys laughing at his pain
He didn't have his shoes on
No one seemed to care
When they took him to the train

And there's nothing prepares us
For what life puts before us
Sometimes crying's really all
We can do

But first there was a winter's night
He thought it such a lovely sight
Put him in a cattle car
He would never leave
But first there was a winter's night
