The Rolling Stones "Winter" Guitar Chords


Rolling Stones Goats Head Soup album cover

This isn't one of their most famous songs, but it sure is a great one. What a beautiful use of the suspended 2 chord which rings throughout the song. Beautiful lyrics that you can really imagine in your mind, and such a melancholy groove it's wonderful to listen to on a Sunday afternoon.


Unfortunately, all the guitar chord charts I could find online are wrong, so here are the correct ones.


You could play the Dsus2 like this x00750 which I think is how he plays it. Or you could just play a standard Dsus2 in open position xx0230.

Intro: | Dsus2 | A | repeat 3x

Dsus2 A

And it sure been a cold, cold winter

Dsus2 A

And the wind ain't been blowin' from the south

Dsus2 A

It's sure been a cold, cold winter

Dsus2 A

And a lotta love is all burned out


Dsus2 A

It sure been a hard, hard winter,

Dsus2 A

My feet been draggin' 'cross the ground

D A

And I hope it's gonna be a long, hot summer,

E D E

and a lotta love... will be burnin' bright

Dsus2 E

And I wish I been out in California

Dsus2 E

when the lights on all the Christmas trees went out

Dsus2 E

But I been burnin' my bell, book and candle,

Dsus2 E

and the restoration plays have all gone 'round

Dsus2 A

It sure been a cold, cold winter,

Dsus2 A

My feet been draggin' 'cross the ground

Dsus2 A

And the fields has all been brown and fallow,

E Dsus2 E

and the springtime take a long way around

D E

Yeah, and I wish I been out in Stone Canyon

Dsus2 E

When the lights on all the Christmas trees went out

D sus2 E

But I been burnin' my bell, book and candle,

Dsus2 E

and the restoration plays have all gone 'round


[Dsus2 and A for the rest of the song...]


Sometimes I think about you, baby,

Sometimes I cry about you.

Sometimes I wanna wrap my coat around you,

Sometimes I wanna keep you warm.

Sometimes I wanna wrap my coat around you,

Sometimes I wanna but I can't afford you.
