Jerry Jeff Walker – Like A Coat From The Cold lyrics

Guy Clark



I found comfort and courage from bottles of whiskey.
I swear to you friends these old high times sure seem risky.
I have backed away gently from those who tried to burn me.
And blocked up my ears that no one should learn me.

Chorus
But the lady beside me is the one I have chosen
To walk through life with me
Like a coat from the cold

I have flown like a bird from every cage that confined me
And broken every one of the ties that bind me
I have danced me around some sad ol' sad ol situatioons
And taken my share of those sweet invitations

Chorus
