Verse 1:

A                     Amaj7            A/F#              A7
When Winter's shadowy fingers first pursue you down the street

         D               Dmaj7         Bm7/F#           D7
And your boots no longer lie about the cold around your feet

       G                   Gmaj7/F#      E7
Do you spare a thought for Summer whose passage is complete

      A               Amaj7           A/F#
Whose memories lie in ruins and whose ruins lie in heat

     Dm      Dsus2 E7    Aadd9 E11    A Asus4add6  A  Asus4add6           
When Winter......  comes howl- ing    in.


Verse 2:

         A               Amaj7              A/F#               A7
When the wind is singing strangely, blowing music through your head

         D               Dmaj7               Bm7/F#          D7
And your rain-splattered windows make you de-cide to stay in bed

       G                       Gmaj7/F#           E7
Do you spare a thought for the homeless tramp who wishes he was dead

          A                     Amaj7            A/F#
Or do you pull your bed-clothes higher, dream of Summertime instead,

     Dm      Dsus2    E7    Aadd9 E11    A Asus4add6  A  Asus4add6  
When Winter......     comes howl--ing    in.


Verse 3:

The creeping cold has fingers that caress without permission

And mystic crystal snowdrops only aggravate the condition

Do you spare a thought for the gypsy with no secure position

Who's turned and spurned by village and town and the Magistrate's decision,

When Winter....  comes howling in.


Verse 4:

When the turkey's in the oven and the Christmas presents are bought

And Santa's in his module - he's an American astronaut -

Do you spare a thought for Jesus, who had nothing but his thoughts,

Who got busted - just for talking, and befriending the wrong sorts,

When Winter....  comes howling in.


     Dm      Dsus2 E7    Aadd9 E11 
When Winter......  comes howling in.
