Like A Coat From The Cold - Guy Clark

    I found comfort and courage in bottled whiskey
    I swear to you old friend, that high life sure get's risky
    I have walked away gently from those I thought would burn me
    I blocked up my ears so that no one could learn me

    But the lady beside me is the one I've chosen
    To walk through life with me, like a coat from the cold

    I have flown like a bird from every cage that confines me
    And broken every one of the ties that bind me
    I have danced me around all these sad ole situations
    I've taken my share of those sweet invitations
