Ten Degrees And Getting Colder Recorded by J.D. Crowe Written by Gordon Lightfoot
C He was standing by the highway with a sign that just said mother D7 G7 When he heard a driver coming bout a half a mile away C So he held the sign up higher where no decent soul could miss it G7 C It was ten degrees or colder down by bolder dam that day
He was raised up in Milwaukee though he never was that famous D7 G7 He was just a road musician to the taverns he would go C Singing songs about the rambling the loving girls and gambling G7 C How the world fell on his shoulders back in Boulder I don't know
It was out in Arizona he heard the lady listening D7 G7 To each word that he was saying to each line that he would write C So he sat down by her table and they talked about the weather G7 C Ninety-eight point six and rising down by Boulder dam that night
F And she told him she would take him G7 C For a ride in the morning sun F Back in Boulder he had told her G7 C I don't know when I’ve had a better friend
Now he's traded off his Martin but his troubles are not over D7 G7 His feet are almost frozen and the sun is sinking low C Won't you listen to me brother if you ever loved your mother D7 G7 Please pull off on the shoulder if you're going Milwaukee way C G7 C It's ten degrees and getting colder down by Boulder dam today
