Norah Jones - Cold Cold Heart chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
    ____________________
   / Norah Jones        /  This song is a cover of an old country classic
  / Cold, Cold Heart   /  by Hank Williams, released as a single in 1951,
 / Come Away With Me  /  and was simultaneously a big hit for Tony Bennett
/____________________/  in his orchestral adaption.


 key: A mixolydian

Think of the verse-part as a modified 12 bar blues structure, instead in
a 5-4-4-3 bars structure; and of the interlude as simply a pause in between.

What Norah Jones' piano improvisation explores is the concept of playing in
the interval of decims (thirds + 1 octave), that is left hand playing and
right hand following synchronously a third + 1 octave above.

 LYRICS
**********
I 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?

[original third verse omitted in this version:]
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?

There was a time when I believed that you belonged to me,
but now I know your heart is shackled to a memory.
The more I learn to care for you, the more we drift apart.
Why can't I free your doubtful mind and melt your cold, cold heart?
