WHY IS IT COLD?

WORDS & MUSIC:   Earl P. Reinhalter



        INTRO:  Am - E7 - Am - E7 - Am
                (like chorus)


                Am
       CHORUS:  why is it cold? (why is it, why is it)
                E7
                why is it cold?

                why so freezing cold?
                Am
                why is it cold? (why is it, why is it)
                E7                     Am
                cold right next to the fire.


                  Dm                      Am
            I.  I stoke the flames with reminders
                   G               Am
                of warm days we've known.
                   Bb                      F
                if only you'd show me some kindness,
                    B7         E
                I'd feel less alone.


                (repeat chorus)


                    Dm                 Am
           II.  you never say that you love me.
                    G          Am
                you only look away.
                     Bb                F
                then why are you still with me?
                        B7             E        A7
                please, tell me what's changed.

                why so freezing cold?
                Dm
                why is it cold? (why is it, why is it)
                A7                     Dm
                cold right next to the fire.


                  Gm                      Dm
          III.  I stoke the flames with reminders
                   C               Dm
                of warm days we've known.
                   Eb                      Bb
                if only you'd show me some kindness,
                    E7         A
                I'd feel less alone.

                Am
                why is it cold?

                N.C.          E7  Am
                to the fire?
