Standing In The Cold
2016/Hank Thomas


I'd like to tell you all my story
'bout this woman that I used to know
She was long, she was lean
And downright awful mean
She left me standing in the cold

I asked, her 'xactly what's her problem
She told me that I ought to know
Now I'm drinkin' sour mash 'cause she took off with my stash
And left me standing in the cold

I only smoke to keep myself from drinkin'
I only drink when I run out of smoke
I had to walk down to this bar 'cause she took off in my car
And left me standing in the cold

Lead Break

Thanks for listenin' to my story
I guess it's time for me to go
'Cause I'm running out of cash and she took off with my stash
And she left me standing in the cold

I only smoke to keep myself from drinkin'
I only drink when I run out of smoke
I had to walk down to this bar 'cause she took off with my car
And left me standing in the cold

I only smoke to keep myself from drinkin'
I only drink when I run out of smoke
Now I'm drinkin' sour mash 'cause she took off with my car
And left me standing in the cold
Now I'm drinkin' sour mash 'cause she took off with my stash
And left me standing in the cold
And left me standing in the cold
