Ebm                    B                               Ebm    B
You're as cold as ice; you're willing to sacrifice our love

You’re closing the door, you leave the world behind

You’re digging for gold, you’re throwing away

A fortune in feelings, but someday you’ll pay

I’ve seen it before, it happens all the time

You’re digging for gold, you’re throwing away

A fortune in feelings, but someday you’ll pay


[Solo]

[Chorus]

Ebm     Bb7    Fdim7
Cold    as     ice - you know that you are
Ebm     Bb7    Fdim7
Cold    as     ice - as cold as ice to me
Ebm     Bb7    Fdim7  B  Ebm  B
 B
Cold    as     ice
Ebm                   B               Ebm         B
You’re as cold as ice, cold as ice, I know, yes I know
Ebm                   B               Ebm      B
You’re as cold as ice, cold as ice, I know, oh yes I know
Ebm                   B               Ebm            B
You’re as cold as ice, cold as ice, I know, oh yes I know
Ebm                        B
You’re as cold as ice... (to fade)

Here's my interpretation of the song. I've also included the chords I use to play it.
Form 2 B barre chord sounds nearly identical to the Form 1. However, it makes it a little
to play the song for some guys, since it's in the same area as other chords in that 
I have not included the intro to this song. Advanced guitarists can use Ebm and B
fragments, while alternating between the Ab and Gb on the second string to mimic the 
part. Credit goes to Curt B. for the intro. Anyone wanting to learn how to play that part 
drop me a PM.

Down 1/2 step it sounds closer to the original

Thanks for the comment, Jock68. I'm using the album Foreigner as a reference for this version. I just played along with it again and it sounds technically correct as I've written it. It is possible they played the original down 1/2 step, but I rarely, if ever, play in dropped tunings. So, if you play it as written in standard tuning, everything should work out fine. Thanks again!

Very nice job. Good catch on those aug and dim chords. Personally I like playing it Am, capo'd to whatever fret to adjust the key (for the brutally high album key of Ebm, capo on 6). Makes it really easy to play the riff if your'e doing it solo on acoustic.

Here's how I play it:

B+ = x2100x
Fdim = 1x010x

Riff:
Am7sus (x02030) - Am7 / F6 (xx3231) F

Verse 1
Am (riff) F Am F
You're as cold as ice; you're willing to sacrifice our love
Am F Dm
You never take advice, someday you?ll pay the price, I know
C B+
I?ve seen it before, it happens all the time
Dm F [G]
You?re closing the door, you leave the world behind
C B+
You?re digging for gold, you?re throwing away
Dm E Am F
A fortune in feelings, but someday you?ll pay

Verse 2
Am F Am F
You?re as cold as ice; you?re willing to sacrifice our love
Am F Dm
You want paradise, but someday you?ll pay the price, I know
C B+
I?ve seen it before, it happens all the time
Dm F G
You?re closing the door, you leave the world behind
C B+
You?re digging for gold, you?re throwing away
Dm E F
A fortune in feelings, but someday you?ll pay

Solo
Am F Dm C E

Bridge:
Am E7 Fdim
Cold as ice - you know that you are
Am E7 Fdim
Cold as ice - as cold as ice to me
Am E7 Fdim F Am F
F
Cold as ice
Am F Am F
You?re as cold as ice, cold as ice, I know, yes I know
Am F Am F
You?re as cold as ice, cold as ice, I know, oh yes I know
Am F Am F
You?re as cold as ice, cold as ice, I know, oh yes I know
Am F
You?re as cold as ice... (to fade)
