SHE CAME OUT OF THE COLD [2] (Tom Evans/Pete Ham)
[Iveys demo from "Without You, The Tragic Story of Badfinger (2nd edition book)" CD - recorded 1967 - released U.S. 2000]

The wind, it whispered coldness on the window
The headlights showed the darkness through the rain
When silhouetted there against the roadside
Was a girl who I'd learned to love that very day

She came out of the cold
Would I ever hold the girl from the cold?
She came out of the cold

We laughed and talked together on the way
I knew then I'd be foolish not to say
"I'd like to see you here again tomorrow"
As we stopped outside her house, I said "Goodnight"

She came out of the cold
Tomorrow, she's mine to have and to hold
She came out of the cold

Excitedly, the next night I arrived there
Asked her mother, was her daughter there inside?
The tears flowed from her eyes, she sadly told me
"A year ago last night, my baby died"

She came out of the cold
Oh, how I wish I was never told
She came out of the cold.

SHE CAME OUT OF THE COLD (Tom Evans/Pete Ham)
[Iveys demo from "94 Baker Street -The Pop Psych Sounds of the Apple Era, 1967-1969" CD - recorded 1967 - released U.S. 2003]

The wind, it whispered coldness on the window
The headlight showed the darkness through the rain
When silhouetted there against the roadside
Was a girl I'd learned to love that very day

I stopped politely, asked where she was going
She said she'd had some trouble with her car
I offered her a lift and she accepted
So we talked the darkened way towards her home

She came out of the cold
Would I ever hold the girl from the cold?
She came out of the cold
We laughed and talked together on the way
I knew then I'd be foolish not to say
"I'd like to see you here again tomorrow"
As we stopped outside her house and said "Goodnight"

She came out of the cold
Tomorrow, she's mine to have and to hold
She came out of the cold

Excitedly, the next night I arrived there
Asked her mother, was her daughter there inside?
The tears flowed from her eyes
She sadly told me, "A year ago last night, my baby died"

She came out of the cold
Oh, how I wish I'd never been told
She came out of the cold.
