It Sure Can Get Cold In Des Moines

Höfundur lags: Tom T. Hall Flytjandi: Tom T. Hall Sent inn af: Anonymous
[C]The Iowa weather was [G7]thirteen [C]below
I had [F]come to Des Moines for a [C]radio show
I [F]awoke in the evening from a [C]traveler's [Am]sleep
[C]With notions of [G7]something to [C]eat  

The [F]old elevator slipped [C]down past the floors
My [F]head and my eyes said you [C]should have slept [G7]more   
The [F]man at the desk said the [C]restaurant was [Am]closed
[C]Outside it was [G7]fourteen [C]below

The lounge was still open and [G7]so I walked [C]in  
In [F]place of my food I had [C]two double gins
I [F]looked round the room as a [C]tourist would [Am]do   
[C]That's when I saw the [G7]girl in the [C]booth

She [F]sat there and cried in the [C]smoky half dark
The [F]silent type crying that [C]tears out your [G7]heart
Her [F]clothes were not cut in [C]the new modern [Am]way   
[C]And her suitcase had [G7]seen better [C]days

Nobody asked her what [G7]caused her such [C]pain
[F]Nobody spoke up yet no [C]one complained
[F]Without even asking I [C]knew why she [Am]cried
[C]Life is just [G7]like that some[C]times

The [F]man at the desk said it's [C]fifteen below
The [F]bellhop said yeah man [C]that's cold that's [G7]cold   
I [F]went back to my room and I [C]wrote down this [Am]song   
[C]Oh it sure can get [G7]cold in Des [C]Moines

The Iowa weather was thirteen below
I had come to Des Moines for a radio show
I awoke in the evening from a traveler's sleep
With notions of something to eat

The old elevator slipped down past the floors
My head and my eyes said you should have slept more
The man at the desk said the restaurant was closed
Outside it was fourteen below

The lounge was still open and so I walked in
In place of my food I had two double gins
I looked round the room as a tourist would do
That's when I saw the girl in the booth

She sat there and cried in the smoky half dark
The silent type crying that tears out your heart
Her clothes were not cut in the new modern way
And her suitcase had seen better days

Nobody asked her what caused her such pain
Nobody spoke up yet no one complained
Without even asking I knew why she cried
Life is just like that sometimes

The man at the desk said it's fifteen below
The bellhop said yeah man that's cold that's cold
I went back to my room and I wrote down this song
Oh it sure can get cold in Des Moines
