[Dm]The roof is leaking and the [C/D]wind is how[Dm]ling

MIDDLE 8
And [Bb]me, I'[Gm]m getting [F]stronger by the [C]minute
[Bb]My wife's ex[Gm]pecting, but I [F]hope she can [C]wait
[Bb] 'Cos this [Gm]winter looks like it's [F]gonna be another [C]bad one

[C]God I hope it's not [Dm]late
VERSE 3
[Dm]Ma and Pa lived here, and [C/D]theirs before [Dm]them
[Dm]Tried their hardest to [Bb]make it a [C]home

[Dm]Hope my children'll try [Bb] to [C]make it their [Dm]own
