OUT IN THE COLD, COLD SNOW
 
div
 
I wander alone through the city
Not a friend in the world do I know
Not a crust, not a bite as I trudge through the night
Out in the cold, cold snow..
They think I'm a tramp or a hiker
But it's pride that compels me to go
Past the homes of the posh through the slush and the slosh
Out in the cold, cold snow.

Chorus: Out in the cold, cold snow.
Out where the cold winds blow
No-one to love me and nowhere to go
Out in the cold, cold snow.


It's all through the bloke that I married
When he gambled and spent all the dough
Then he slung me, Oh heck, by the back of the neck
Out in the cold, cold snow.
He left me with one little off-spring
Cast your eye on our John Willie Joe
Does it seem worth a kiss to be landed like this
Out in the cold, cold snow.

Chorus:

One dark night I jumped in the river
For to end all my weal and my woe
But I just missed the flood, so I stuck in the mud
Out in the cold, cold snow.
I've only the rags that I'm wearing
All my silks went in pawn long ago
But I keep out the wet with my red flanelette
Out in the cold, cold snow.

Chorus:

Last night I was chased by a bandit
He took me for the Duchess of Bow
'Where's your town house?' he cried, and to him I replied
Out in the cold, cold snow.
I don't seek revenge on my 'usband
'Cause to blazes I'm sure he will go
Then how glad he would be to change places with me
Out in the cold, cold snow.

Chorus:
