VERSE 1
Dm                          C/D        Dm
The roof is leaking and the wind is howling
Dm                       Bb            C
Kids are crying 'cos the sheets are so cold
Dm                           C/D           Dm
I woke this morning found my hands were frozen
Dm                                  Bb       C                Dm
I've tried to fix the fire, but you know the damn thing's too old
 
VERSE 2
Dm                            C/D              Dm
It's been months now since we heard from our Mary,
Dm                   Bb       C
I wonder if she ever made the coast
Dm                          C/D            Dm
She and her young man, they both moved out there
Dm                         Bb       C      Dm
But I sure hope they write, just to let us know
 
MIDDLE 8
    Bb    Gm        F        Dm        C
And me, I'm getting stronger by the minute
Bb          Gm             F        Dm      C
My wife's expecting, but I hope she can wait
Bb          Gm                     F          Dm       C
  'Cos this winter looks like it's gonna be another bad one
Bb    Gm                   F  Dm      Cadd2
  But spring'll soon be here, oh oh
                       Dm
God I hope it's not late
 
VERSE 3
Dm                        C/D           Dm
Ma and Pa lived here, and theirs before them
Dm                     Bb        C
Tried their hardest to make it a home
Dm                      C/D          Dm
Seems so long now since they passed over
Dm                      Bb   C             Dm
Hope my children'll try   to make it their own
 
VERSE 1
Dm                          C/D        Dm
The roof is leaking and the wind is howling
Dm                       Bb            C
Kids are crying 'cos the sheets are so cold
Dm                           C/D           Dm
I woke this morning found my hands were frozen
Dm                                  Bb       C                Dm
I've tried to fix the fire, but you know the damn thing's too old
 
MIDDLE 8
    Bb    Gm        F        Dm        C
And me, I'm getting stronger by the minute
Bb          Gm             F        Dm      C
My wife's expecting, but I hope she can wait
Bb          Gm                     F          Dm      C
  'Cos this winter looks like it's gonna be another bad one
Bb    Gm                F    Dm    Cadd2
  But spring'll soon be here, oh oh
                       Dm
God I hope it's not late
