Ain't this a pity, people ain't this a cryin' shame
Ain't this a pity, people ain't this a cryin' shame

I gave her all of my money, all of my love and everything
Nine below zero, she put me down for another man

Well you know its nine below zero cousin, she put me down

It's nine below zero, she put me down for another man

I'm gonna retire on the delta, layin' out there in the
Fallin' rain
I'm gonna retire on the delta, layin' out there in the
Fallin' rain
You know it's nine below zero people, and my love don't
Mean a thing
