       D               D/C#               D/B               D/C
When Winter's shadowy fingers first pur - sue you down the street,
(D)(D/E)(D/F#)  G             G/F#          G/E              [ch]G7/F[/ch]
    And  your boots no longer lie about the cold around your feet,
(G7)(G7/A)(G7/B) C                  C/B           A7                  A7sus4  A7
      Do   you spare a thought for Summer, whose passage is complete?
         D             D/C              D/B
Whose memories lie in ruins, and whose ruins lie in heat,
(D)(D/E)(D/F#) Gm       A7sus4 A7       [ch]Em7/B[/ch]  A7/C#  D   Dsus4   D Dsus4 D
         When winter...            comes howl - ing  in!


           D               D/C#             D/B                D/C
When the wind is singing strangely, blowing music through your head,
(D)(D/E)(D/F#) G              G/F#                 G/E             [ch]G7/F[/ch]
    And your rain-splattered windows make you de - cide to stay in bed,
(G7)(G7/A)(G7/B) C                      C/B                 A7               A7sus4  A7
      Do   you spare a thought for the homeless tramp who wishes he was dead,
            D                    D/C                D/B
Or do you pull your bed-clothes higher, dream of Summertime instead,
(D)(D/E)(D/F#) Gm       A7sus4 A7       [ch]Em7/B[/ch]  A7/C#  D   Dsus4   D Dsus4 D
         When winter...            comes howl - ing  in!


       D                D/C#             D/B                  D/C
The creeping cold has fingers, that ca - ress without per - mission,
(D)(D/E)(D/F#) G              G/F#           G/E                [ch]G7/F[/ch]
         And mystic crystal snowdrops only aggravate the con - dition,
(G7)(G7/A)(G7/B) C                       C/B         A7             A7sus4   A7
      Do   you spare one thought for the gypsy, with no secure po - sition,
        D                       D/C                       D/B
Who's turned, and spurned, by village and town, at the Magistrate's decision,
(D)(D/E)(D/F#) Gm       A7sus4 A7       [ch]Em7/B[/ch]  A7/C#  D   Dsus4   D Dsus4 D
         When winter...            comes howl - ing  in!



            D            D/C#             D/B                  D/C
When the turkey's in the oven, and the Christmas presents are bought,
(D)(D/E)(D/F#) G             G/F#             G/E            [ch]G7/F[/ch]
         And Santa's in his module, he's an American astro - naut,
(G7)(G7/A)(G7/B) C                    C/B             A7                    A7sus4  A7
      Do   you spare one thought for Jesus, who had nothing but his thoughts,
           D             D/C                 D/B
Who got busted just for talking, and be - friending the wrong sorts,
(D)(D/E)(D/F#)  Gm       A7sus4 A7      [ch]Em7/B[/ch]  A7/C#  D   Dsus4   D Dsus4 D
         When winter...            comes howl - ing  in!
(D)(D/E)(D/F#)  Gm       A7sus4 A7      [ch]Em7/B[/ch]  A7/C#  D   Dsus4   D Dsus4 D
