Blaze Foley – Cold Cold World lyrics

I've tried for a long time but I think I can't win
I'd do it all better if I could do it a-gain
Wherever I'm going it's the same place I been
Ain't it a cold, cold world

Outside it was hot but inside I am cold
The eyes of the young met the eyes of the old
And what they were thinking I'll never be told
Ain't it a cold, cold world

Then an old lady asked me bout this new daylight time
I said it don't matter and she said I don't mind
Then the bus driver said you still owe me a dime

Ain't it a cold, cold world

I can't get no job and I can't get no rest
I started out east and I ended up west
And I'm so glad to be here I'm sure, I would guess
Ain't it a cold, cold world

I might have to leave you, I think's what she said
Wish I could sleep 'stead of tossing in bed
And I find myself thinking I'd be better off dead
Ain't it a cold, cold world
Ain't it a cold, cold world
