This arrangement combines some elements of both the piano
and the slide guitar for one acoustic guitar

Tune bottom E string down to D to match 4th string

automatically suggest.

[Verse 1]
Dm                     Dm7      Dm  C/D            Dm *
    The roof is leak - ing, and the wind is howl - ing,
Dm                     Dm7              Bb/D         C/D *
    The kids are cry - ing, 'cause the sheets are so cold,
Dm                     Dm7        Dm  C/D             Dm *
      Woke this morn - ing, found my hands were fro - zen,
Dm                     Dm7
     I've tried to fix the fire,
         Bb/D          C/D *            Dm    C/D Dm
But, you know,  ...the damn thing's too old!


[Verse 2]
Dm                   Dm7        Dm  C/D               Dm *
    It's been months now, since we heard from our Mar -y,
Dm           Dm7         Bb/D       C/D *
    I wonder if she ever made the coast,
Dm                           Dm7   Dm  C/D             Dm *
    Well, she, and her young man, they both moved out there,
Dm                       Dm7    Bb/D            C/D *  Dm *
    But I sure hope they write,      ...just to let us know!


[Verse 3]
    Bb *  Gm                 F    Dm7 *   Cadd9
And me,       I'm getting stronger by the minute,
Bb *                  Gm            F       Dm7 *  Cadd9
     My wife's ex - pecting, but I hope she can    wait,
Bb *               Gm
     'Cause this winter looks like...
          F          Dm7 *  Cadd9
...It's gonna be a - nother  bad one,
Bb *        Gm               F    Dm7      Cadd9
      But spring'll soon be here,  ...oh - oh-----,
Cadd9                     Dm
      But I hope it's not late----!

[Verse 4]
Dm             Dm7        Dm   C/D           Dm *
    Ma and Pa lived here, and theirs before them,
Dm                          Dm7    Bb/D      C/D
    They tried their hard - est to make it a home,
Dm                Dm7  Dm    C/D            Dm *
    Seems so long now since they passed o - ver,
Dm                  Dm7         Bb/D      C/D           Dm *
   'Hope my child - ren ...will try ...to make it their own!


[Verse 5]
Dm                        Dm7      Dm  C/D            Dm *
    Ma, my roof is leak - ing, and the wind is howl - ing,
Dm                     Dm7             Bb/D          C/D *
    The kids are cry - ing, 'cause the sheets are so cold,
Dm                     Dm7      Dm  C/D             Dm *
      Woke this morn - ing, and my hands were fro - zen,
