Cold As A Knife

from Road Songs by Alex McMurray

lyrics

west of the wind and east of you
and i don't know what i'm gonna do
thought i'd found the perfect town
but they been throwing your name around
they're closing down the 84
and i can't hold this wheel no more
hide my memory in my boot
leave my name in another suit

and it's cold it's cold
it's cold it's cold
it's cold as a knife right here

old man crying on the telephone
little girl about half grown
went all wrong but she couldn't say
why'd she throw it all away
and in the end she's just like me
in the navy in '93
got drunk on a watch and then
never had to look at Norfolk again

and it's a cold it's a cold
it's cold it's cold
it's cold as a knife right here

i wanna say the road is just a killer
it’s long and cold and black
i gotta see what’s over that hill
but the road will never bring me back

that one time we all were there
with the wine and the folding chairs
pitching horseshoes in the sun
and we laughed just like anyone
but now we’re scattered just dry leaves
and i got nothing up my sleeves
you’re my soul my sin my star
good luck to you wherever you are

and it's cold it's cold
it's cold it's cold
it's cold as a knife right here
