Well Skinny cut the deck,
And Archie dealt the cards,
Wendy brought out drinks,
That Charlie mixed behind the bar,
Well I'm taking off my gloves,
And unzipping my coat,
There's three feet of snow in Buffalo.

A disappointing year,
Now our Bills are 1 and 9,
And friends keep getting laid off,
What seems like all the time,
Well the city will plow the runways and then they'll plow the roads,
there's four feet of snow in Buffalo.

This is truly a great song. I love the singers voice. So raw and genuine, endearing and original. A really emotional performance. Lyrically, a lot of Dylan influence, but I don't think its derivative at all. I like the bridge a lot. The guitar work is good and the rhythm really drives the song. I can't wait to finish this review and (hopefully) download this song.

The song has real heart... and it's delivered with conviction.

Entertaining. I can easily imagine a group of friends around a camp fire, listening to your singing.
