Demo & Pdf

A Kentucky songwriter and promoter Paul Gilley apparently wrote the lyrics to this song and I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry. He then sold the songs to Hank Williams. Gilley drowned at age 27. Not only did Hank have a #1 hit with this song but so did Tony Bennett, both back in 1951.

Here is another instance where you can use a drop D tuning, but it's always optional.

Here are the chords you'll need for this song:

  • D
  • A7
  • G

In this song I use a little riff to open the song. Due to the drop D tuning, you can use that deep D bass note not only in the strumming pattern, but also in the runs between the chords.

I've added the intro back into the middle of the song but you could extend this out into a full verse break if needed.

Cold Cold Heart Lyrics

I tried so hard my dear to show that you're my every dream
Yet you're afraid each thing I do is just some evil scheme
A memory from your lonesome past keeps us so far apart
Why can't I free your doubtful mind and melt your cold cold heart

Another love before my time made your heart sad and blue
And so my heart is paying now for things I didn't do
In anger unkind words are said that make the teardrops start
Why can't I free your doubtful mind, and melt your cold cold heart

You'll never know how much it hurts to see you sit and cry
You know you need and want my love yet you're afraid to try
Why do you run and hide from life, to try it just ain't smart
Why can't I free your doubtful mind and melt your cold cold heart

There was a time when I believed that you belonged to me
But now I know your heart is shackled to a memory
The more I learn to care for you, the more we drift apart
Why can't I free your doubtful mind and melt your cold cold heart
