Cold Feet  Tracy Chapman







[G] [G]  
[D] [C] [G] [G]  
There w[D]as a little boy
[C]once upon a time, who in
[G]spite of his young age and small s[G]ize, knew his mind. For
[D]every copper penny and
[C]clover he would find, make a
[G]wish for better days, the [G]end of hard times for no more...
[C]cold feet. C[D]old cold cold cold cold [G]feet... [G]
(now keep playing D C G G for the verses and C D G for
the choruses the whole song...)
His c[D]lothes were alway clean,
[C]his face was always scrubbed, there was
[G]food on the table, enough to [G]fill him up. His
[D]house was full of life, his
[C]house was full of love, but when
[G]winterdays arrived, there was [G]never money enough to shod this
[C]cold feet, c[D]old cold cold cold f[G]eet... [G]
He grew [D]up to be a worker
[C]determined to succeed, he made a
[G]life for himself free from
[G]worldly wants or needs. But with no-
[D]body to share the life he'd made no-
[C]body to keep him warm
[G]at night, when he'd go to sleep he'[G]d sleep alone with his...
[C]cold feet, c[D]old cold cold cold fe[G]et...[G]
One n[D]ight he walked the street looking
[C]to the heaven above searching
[G]for a shooting star, a be[G]nevolved god. When a
[D]woman passing by brushed his
[C]arm he turned and found love. He then
[G]wished for the courage to ask this st[G]ranger who she was to not have...
[G]cold feet, [D]cold cold cold cold f[G]eet... [G]
One year [D]later he stood beside her. He vowed I'll give you
[C]everything you want. She said, "I'll
[G]take some love from my heart to k[G]eep your body warm, you won't have...
[C]cold feet, c[D]old cold cold cold [G]feet"...[G]
He [D]thought she'd like the party life and
[C]want the finer things, so he
[G]promised more than he could by, He'd
[G]promised her the sun and the moon to not have...
[C]cold feet, [D]cold cold cold cold f[G]eet... [G]
He w[D]orked day and night, his
[C]fingers to the bone.
[G]His worried mind, guilty conscience drive him on. He can
[D]give her what she needs. He wants to
[C]give her what he thinks she wants. Her
[G]sad eyed face, his empty [G]pockets drive him on[G]__________[G]_ and his...
[C]cold feet, [D]cold cold cold cold [G]feet...[G]
He'd [D]struggled all his life to
[C]be an honest man, proud that the
[G]dirt on his palms was the s[G]oil of the land, but some
[D]guys he knew from high school days
[C]said they had a plan to get
[G]rich real quick and they could co[G]unt him in if he don't have...
[C]cold feet, c[D]old cold cold cold f[G]eet... [G]
He t[D]hought about their offer,
[C]accepted it without qualms.
[G]Dreamt about the life he'd buy, the [G]comfort that would come without...
[C]cold feet, c[D]old cold cold cold [G]feet... [G]
He dec[D]ided to drive the car, he de-
[C]cided to carry the gun, to take the
[G]biggest risk of all to prove his l[G]oyalty to his friends. He de-
[D]cided to tell his wife
[C]things would soon turn around. He said,"The
[G]little boy is dead, a [G]man stands with you now, without...
[C]cold feet, c[D]old cold cold cold fe[G]et... [G]
Without ... [C]cold feet, [D]cold cold cold cold f[G]eet..." [G]
He t[D]hought he'd set his clock right. He
[C]thought he'd read his wath. He
[G]left in such a hurry, he didn't [G]think to wish for luck. Makes no
[D]difference if you're early, no
[C]difference if you're late,
[G]when you're out of time. The [G]flowers have been laid. You're [G]six feet underground with
[C]cold feet, co[D]ld cold cold cold fe[G]et...
That's all. The rythm and the malody for each single verse varies...
Hope you enjoy the song, peat...
