Song Description

This song is from the point of view of a homeless person about to die

Story Behind the Song

A poor homeless old woman goes to lay down on the cold cold ground to die accompanied by angels who harmonize with her.


Cold Cold Ground

Chorus Don?t want to lay down on the cold cold ground
For I heard that the temperature is going down
Next day my body surely will be found
If I lay down on the cold cold ground.

1 The mission is full so they turn me away
I got to find another place to stay
Can?t walk no more for the pain in my feet
The first thing I got to do is find a seat
Maybe I?ll knock on the old church door
And maybe they will let me sleep on the floor
I hope they will have some food to eat
They may even have a little meat.


2 (½ verse solo)
See all the people out there passing by
Not one of them can spare a smile
Across the road some one just fell down
He?s gone to lay down on the cold cold Ground.


Br. Feel my eyes a closing I just want to sleep
There are many friends who I will meet
For soon I won?t be able to hear a sound
Because I?m going to lay down on the cold ground.
