I have only ever encountered Footprints in the Snow in a bluegrass context, and was a little surprised to find a recording of Melvin Wine playing it.  This is a nice old time arrangement.  Look out for short lines containing three measures rather than four, giving this a somewhat crooked sound.

This tune has no comments.
