    ____________________
   / 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 ina 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. *** interlude: | A | - | - | - | verse: | A | - | - | E | - | | E | - | - | A | | A | - | - | D | | E | - | - | interlude verse interlude verse (piano solo) interlude verse outro: | D9 | - | (repeat till fade out) 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? I have also submitted a full transcription of the piano and bass part: tabs.ultimate-guitar.com/n/norah_jones/cold_cold_heart_guitar_pro.htm
