Hank Williams – Cold Cold Heart lyrics

I tried so hard my dear to show that youre my every dream.
Yet youre 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

Youll never know how much it hurts to see you sat and cry
You know you need and want my love yet youre afraid to try
Why do you run and hide from lies, to try it just aint 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

Cold Cold Heart meanings

  • u
    One of Hank Williams' best songs. Not only lyrically but melodically as well. Here is an example of the melody matching the words in an excellent marriage all in a three chord song! Each note expresses the feeling of what is said here. Hank's strong suit was mostly his lyrics written in a very straightforward to the point style. Like Jimmy Rogers he had a gift for simple words in a very clever manner. The interpretation is plain and simple, he loves the woman but she's had bad experiences so she's reluctant to love again so he hopes to melt her cold cold (two colds) heart.
