Lyrics

THE COLD’LL KILL YA
Copyright 2004 Dave King

‘twas the coldest winter remembered in years
The snow was relentless and so were the tears
Too little warmth’ll send you right to your grave
‘cause the cold’ll kill ya, that’s what they say

Flames shootin’ high from a garbage can
Cold bodies huddled over warming their hands
Passin’ the bottle to warm their insides
Weather’s not as cold as the look in their eyes

Shadowy figure with an outstretched thumb
He’s tryin’ to catch a ride but getting’ none
In search of shelter from the storm
‘fraid he just might die if he don’t ever get warm

Much too fast
The days pass by
Life is gone
In just a blink of an eye
In just a blink of an eye

Now Mary, she loved Johnny
At least that’s what she said
She’d turn off the light and roll over to her side of the bed
Johnny, he’d just lie there in the dark wide-awake
Thinkin’ to himself, yeah the cold’ll kill ya
Yeah that’s what they say

Yeah the cold’ll kill ya
That’s what they say
Yeah the cold’ll kill ya
That’s what they say
