the wind blew cold lyrics – hank williams iii

the wind blew cold

well, i was standing on a corner at the flat out in [?] in nashville, north caroline
waiting for a woman that was putting me down and leaving me way behind
and the wind was cold, the wind blew cold.

i walked around the corner to have a cup or coffee
and i met a good buddy instead
we moved across the river for a shot of white lightning that the moose me out of my head
and the wind was cold, the wind blew cold.

i can’t forget, that lonesome day
nothing seemed to go my way
i got put down, by the woman i love
and the wind blew cold lord, lord, the wind blew cold.

started walking and i thumbed across the hotspring mountains there and the knoxville tennessee
i hear a freight train, was a-landing before the wind blow
and no one talking to me
and the wind was cold, the wind blew cold

a couple of fellows and a lot truck moving
took me to the tennessee line
we got to talking and a-drinking over troubles
on a bottle of home made wine
and the wind was cold, the wind blew cold

i can’t forget, that lonesome day
nothing seemed to go my way
i got put down, by the woman i love
and the wind blew cold lord, lord, the wind blew cold
and the wind blew cold lord, lord, the wind blew cold.
