      Tom T. Hall - It Sure Can Get Cold In Des Moines Música y Letra

      The Iowa weather was 13 below 
      I had come to Des Moines for a radio show 
      I awoke in the evening from a traveler's sleep 
      With notions of something to eat
      
      The old elevator slid down past the floors 
      My head and my eyes said "You should have slept more." 
      The man at the desk said the restaurant was closed 
      Outside it was 14 below
      
      The lounge was still open and so I walked in 
      In place of my food I had two double gins 
      I looked 'round the room, as a tourist would do 
      That's when I saw the girl in the booth
      
      She sat there and cried in the smoky half-dark 
      The silent type crying that tears out your heart 
      Her clothes were not cut in the new modern way 
      And her suitcase had seen better days
      
      Nobody asked her what caused her such pain 
      Nobody spoke up, yet no one complained 
      Without even asking, I knew why she cried 
      Life is just like that sometimes
      
      The man at the desk said, "It's 15 below." 
      The bellhop said "Yeah man, that's cold...that's cold." 
      I went back to my room and I wrote down this song 
      Oh it sure can get cold in Des Moines
