It Sure Can Get Cold In Des Moines
Written and recorded by Tom T. Hall
[3/4 time]

C G7 C
The Iowa weather was thirteen below
F C
I had come to Des Moines for a radio show
F C Am
I awoke in the evening from a traveler's sleep
C G7 C
With notions of something to eat

F C
The old elevator slipped down past the floors
F C G7
My head and my eyes said you should have slept more
F C Am
The man at the desk said the restaurant was closed
C G7 C
Outside it was fourteen below

G7 C
The lounge was still open and so I walked in
F C
In place of my food I had two double gins
F C Am
I looked round the room as a tourist would do
C G7 C
That's when I saw the girl in the booth

F C
She sat there and cried in the smoky half dark
F C G7
The silent type crying that tears out your heart
F C Am
Her clothes were not cut in the new modern way
C G7 C
And her suitcase had seen better days

G7 C
Nobody asked her what caused her such pain
F C
Nobody spoke up yet no one complained
F C Am
Without even asking I knew why she cried
C G7 C
Life is just like that sometimes

F C
The man at the desk said it's fifteen below
F C G7
The bellhop said yeah man that's cold that's cold
F C Am
I went back to my room and I wrote down this song
C G7 C
Oh it sure can get cold in Des Moines
