Like a Coat From the Cold


C G/B Am - Am7/G - D/F# - G F G7 C G/B Am - Am7/G - D/F# - G F G7 C G/B Am Am7/G F G C G I found comfort and courage in bottles of whiskey, Am Am7/G F D7/F# G7 But I swear to you, friend, that that life is pretty risky. C G/B Am Am7/G F G C G I have backed away quickly from those that would burn me Am Am7/G F D7/F# G And stopped up my ears that no one should learn me. F G C F G C But the lady beside me is the one I have chosen Dm G F G C G/B Am - Am7/G - D/F# - G F G7 To walk through my life, like a coat from the cold.

I have flown like a bird from each cage that confined me
And broken every one of the ties that would bind me.
I have danced me around some sad old situations,
Taken up my share of those sweet invitations.


F G C F G C But the lady beside me is the one I have chosen Dm G F G C G/B Am - Am7/G - D/F# - G To walk through my life, like a coat from the cold. Dm G F G C G/B Am - Am7/G - D/F# - G F C To walk through my life, like a coat from the cold.

(Words and music by Guy Clark, 1974)
