Verse1

There wDas a little boy Conce upon a time, who in Gspite of his young age and small sGize, knew his mind. For Devery copper penny and Cclover he would find, make a Gwish for better days, the Gend of hard times for no more...

Chorus

Ccold feet. CDold cold cold cold cold Gfeet... G (now keep playing D C G G for the verses and C D G for the choruses the whole song...)

Verse2

His cDlothes were alway clean, Chis face was always scrubbed, there was Gfood on the table, enough to Gfill him up. His Dhouse was full of life, his Chouse was full of love, but when Gwinterdays arrived, there was Gnever money enough to shod this Ccold feet, cDold cold cold cold fGeet... G

Verse3

He grew Dup to be a worker Cdetermined to succeed, he made a Glife for himself free from Gworldly wants or needs. But with no- Dbody to share the life he'd made no- Cbody to keep him warm Gat night, when he'd go to sleep he'Gd sleep alone with his... Ccold feet, cDold cold cold cold feGet...G

Verse4

One nDight he walked the street looking Cto the heaven above searching Gfor a shooting star, a beGnevolved god. When a Dwoman passing by brushed his Carm he turned and found love. He then Gwished for the courage to ask this stGranger who she was to not have... Gcold feet, Dcold cold cold cold fGeet... G

Verse5

One year Dlater he stood beside her. He vowed I'll give you Ceverything you want. She said, "I'll Gtake some love from my heart to kGeep your body warm, you won't have... Ccold feet, cDold cold cold cold Gfeet"...G

Verse6

He Dthought she'd like the party life and Cwant the finer things, so he Gpromised more than he could by, He'd Gpromised her the sun and the moon to not have... Ccold feet, Dcold cold cold cold fGeet... G

Verse7

He wDorked day and night, his Cfingers to the bone. GHis worried mind, guilty conscience drive him on. He can Dgive her what she needs. He wants to Cgive her what he thinks she wants. Her Gsad eyed face, his empty Gpockets drive him onG__________G_ and his... Ccold feet, Dcold cold cold cold Gfeet...G

Verse8

He'd Dstruggled all his life to Cbe an honest man, proud that the Gdirt on his palms was the sGoil of the land, but some Dguys he knew from high school days Csaid they had a plan to get Grich real quick and they could coGunt him in if he don't have... Ccold feet, cDold cold cold cold fGeet... G

Verse9

He tDhought about their offer, Caccepted it without qualms. GDreamt about the life he'd buy, the Gcomfort that would come without... Ccold feet, cDold cold cold cold Gfeet... G

Verse10

He decDided to drive the car, he de- Ccided to carry the gun, to take the Gbiggest risk of all to prove his lGoyalty to his friends. He de- Dcided to tell his wife Cthings would soon turn around. He said,"The Glittle boy is dead, a Gman stands with you now, without... Ccold feet, cDold cold cold cold feGet... G Without ... Ccold feet, Dcold cold cold cold fGeet..." G

Verse11

He tDhought he'd set his clock right. He Cthought he'd read his wath. He Gleft in such a hurry, he didn't Gthink to wish for luck. Makes no Ddifference if you're early, no Cdifference if you're late, Gwhen you're out of time. The Gflowers have been laid. You're Gsix feet underground with Ccold feet, coDld cold cold cold feGet... That's all. The rythm and the malody for each single verse varies... Hope you enjoy the song, peat...
