Cold as Christmas (in the Middle of the Year)  Elton John

This is pretty similiar to the one found on "jumbo jimbo's" except that version has the
placement quite wrong
Standard Tuning
intro: F C D/E C
[G]We still sit at separate t[Em7]ables
And we sl[C]eep at different t[G]imes
And the w[D]arm wind in the palm tr[Em]ees
Hasn't he[C]lped to change our minds
[G]It was the lure of the t[Em7]ropics
That I th[C]ought might heal the s[G]cars
Of a love[D] burned out by s[Em]ilence
In a marr[C]iage minus heart
And I c[B7]all the kids on the telephone
Say there's something wr[Em]ong out here
It's Jul[C]y but it's cold as C[G]hristmas
In the m[D]iddle of the year
The te[Am/E]mperature's up to ninety five
But there's a winter[Am] look [Am/G]in your mother's e[F]yes
And to mel[C]t the tears there's a heat wav[E/G#]e here
So h[F]ow come it's cold as[C] Christmas in the middle of the ye[G]ar[F]
[G]I dreamed of love in a better clima[Em7]te
And for w[C]hat it's really wo[G]rth
I put fai[D]th in the star we follo[Em]wed
To this C[C]aribbean surf
[G]But there's an icy fringe on everyt[Em7]hing
And I can[C]not find the li[G]nes
Where's t[D]he beauty in the beast [Em]we made
Why the f[C]rost in the summertime
