Cold Cold Rain

The Giving Tree Band - Vacilador

Featured on:

Lightning struck the day I left

In your defense I do regret

I’d be lying to say I never thought of you


But I had to live another way

If I wanted to live another day

‘Cause I can’t help but do the things I do


And I was standing

In the cold

Cold cold rain

When a north wind

A north wind blew

My love away


Whiskey soaked by the firelight

That pale moon was on the rise

And stars shone through the darkest of the night


And I could tell things weren’t quite right

You were gone like a bird in flight

And I couldn’t even lift my hand to fight


When they came to take me down

I was glad that you were not around

But why’d you tell them where I could be found


And clouds filled up that lonely sky

And I will see it by and by

But off into the darkness I did ride
