It Sure Can Get Cold In Des Moines
Written and Recorded by Tom T. Hall
A/A time 
C 
The Iowa weather was  
G7 
thirteen 
 
 
C 
below
 
I had  
F 
come to Des Moines for a  
C 
radio 
 
show
 
I  
F 
awoke in the evening from a  
C 
traveler's 
 
 
Am 
sleep
C 
With notions of  
G7 
something to  
C 
eat
 
The  
F 
old elevator slipped  
C 
down past the floors
 
My  
F 
head and my eyes said you  
C 
should have slept  
G7 
more
 
The  
F 
man at the desk said the  
C 
restaurant was  
Am 
closed
C 
Outside it was  
G7 
fourteen 
 
 
C 
below
 
The lounge was still open and  
G7 
so I walked  
C 
in
 
In  
F 
place of my food I had  
C 
two double gins
 
I  
F 
looked round the room as a  
C 
tourist would  
Am 
do
C 
That's when I saw the  
G7 
girl in the  
C 
booth
 
She  
F 
sat there and cried in the  
C 
smoky half dark
 
The  
F 
silent type crying that  
C 
tears out your  
G7 
heart
 
Her  
F 
clothes were not cut in  
C 
the new modern  
Am 
way
C 
And her suitcase had  
G7 
seen better  
C 
days
 
Nobody asked her what  
G7 
caused her such  
C 
pain
F 
Nobody spoke up yet no  
C 
one 
 
complained
F 
Without even asking I  
C 
knew why she  
Am 
cried
C 
Life is just  
G7 
like that some
C 
times
 
The  
F 
man at the desk said it's  
C 
fifteen 
 
below
 
The  
F 
bellhop said yeah man  
C 
that's cold that's  
G7 
cold
 
I  
F 
went back to my room and I  
C 
wrote down this  
Am 
song
C 
Oh it sure can get  
G7 
cold in Des  
C 
Moines
