Verse 1: D Ddim D7 When Winter's shadowy fingers first pursue you down the street G Bm Em G7 And your boots no longer lie about the cold around your feet C Em A Do you spare a thought for Summer whose passage is complete D Ddim D7 Whose memories lie in ruins and whose ruins lie in heat Gm G A (D Dsus4, D, Dsus4, D)x2 When Winter.... comes howling in. Verse 2: When the wind is singing strangely, blowing music through your head And your rain-splattered windows make you decide to stay in bed Do you spare a thought for the homeless tramp who wishes he was dead Or do you pull your bed-clothes higher, dream of Summertime instead, When Winter.... comes howling 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. Gm G A Intro.... When Winter.... comes howling in. p.s. I consider this to be one of the most potent Christian songs ever written. I am not Christian myself, but the sentiments expressed apply universally to all Masters, their followers' attitudes, and their remembrance... particularly Verse 4... Dexter N.
