Cold, Cold Heart

April 2024

Cold, Cold Heart

By Hank Williams



I’ve 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?

 

Because you run and hide

from life

 

We now have to part.

 

I’ll never free your

doubtful mind

 

or

 

melt your cold, cold heart.
