One cold night, I was out in the frost and snow
One cold night, I was out in the frost and snow
I didn't have a penny, I couldn't find no place to go

Way, down the lane, I thought I see'd a fire
Way, down the lane, I thought I see'd a fire
'Fore I could make it there to warm my hands, the hobos had put it out

I was so cold my feets was near about froze
I was so cold my feets was near about froze
And I didn't have a penny, I couldn't find no place to go

I come to a house, I knocked up on the door
I come to a house, I knocked up on the door
They wouldn't accept my company because I didn't have on no clothes

Hmmm, my feets was near about froze
Hmmm, my feets was near about froze
I didn't have a penny, I couldn't find no place to go

I looked and saw old lady standing in the door
I looked and saw old lady standing in the door
She said, "Come in, daughter, how in the world that you trying to go?"
