	  		Intro 

G 

verse 1 

It was a cold night 
                 Em 
And the snow lay around 
I pulled my coat tight 
                    C 
Against the falling down 
And the sun was all 
                    G     Em 
And the sun was all down 
And the sun was all 
                    C     G 
And the sun was all down 

verse 2 

I am a poor man 
                     Em 
I haven't wealth nor fame 
I have my two hands 
                  C 
And a house to my name 
And the winter's so 
                    G     Em 
And the winter's so long 
And the winter's so 
                    C     D 
And the winter's so long
