Cold Cold Heart

A7
D
D

I tried so hard my dear to show that you're my every dream

Why can't I free your doubtful mind and melt your Cold Cold Heart.

Why do you run and hide from life, to try it just ain't smart

Why can't I free your doubtful mind and melt your Cold Cold Heart.

There was a time when I believed that you belonged to me

The more I learn to care for you, the more we drift apart

Ramblin' Man (Hank Williams)

Am
I can settle down and be doin' just fine
E7
Am
Til I hear an old train rollin' down the line Then I hurry straight home and pack
E7
Am
And if I didn't go, I believe I'd blow my stack I love you baby, but you gotta understand
E7
Am
When the Lord made me, he made a ramblin' Man. Some folks might sa-ay that I'm no good That I wouldn't settle down if I could But when that open ro-oad starts to callin' me There's somethin' o'er the hill that I gotta see Sometimes it's har-rd but you gotta understand When the Lord made me, He made a Ra-amblin' Man. I love to see the tow-owns a-passin' by And to ride these rails 'neath God's blue sky Let me travel this la-and from the mountains to the sea 'Cause that's the life I believe He meant for me And when I'm go-one and at my grave you stand Just say God called home your Ra-amblin' Man.



So Lonesome I Could Cry (Hank Williams)

As played by Seasick Steve and Amy LaVere in 2008.
Tuning: DADF#AD (Open D)
D
Hear that lonesome whipoorwill He sounds too blue to fly The midnight train is whining low I'm so lonesome I could cry I've never seen a night so long When time goes crawling by The moon just went behind a cloud To hide hide its face and cry Did you ever see a robin weep When leaves begin to die? That means he's lost the will to live I'm so lonesome I could cry The silence of a falling star Lights up a purple sky And as I wonder where you are I'm so lonesome cry
