MAXY HOGG lyrics : "Cold Mountain Blues"

Piling up this firewood to prolong the night-time's warmth
And keep my cigarettes lit 'til the morning is reborn
You see, in my deepest darkest dreams my days are short and few

The windy hills of old cold mountain's where I take my cue

The war lives on until the memory can be erased

The whisky dances by my hip to hide my sorrowed face
I hold a loaded pistol to my head for old time's sake
You to would be eager to escape this awful fate


CHORUS
Cold mountain

Cold mountain blues

Don't give up on me my dear I'm only losing touch

I fough the only way I could but may have fought too much
A younger hand would seize this land and build up something new
Old cold mountain's killing me but babe I must stay true


Oh Lord, if you've stood witness to the contours of my scheme
Guide me through your winters wild until my slate is clean

Spare my friends and family, please nurse them back to health
Show them that the hand they've known was tnot the one you dealt


REPEAT CHORUS

MIDDLE8

You know I'm waiting for the sun to come x2

A chill runs down the sharpened ridge and rests among the gale

It's felt by every single man who's lived to tell this tale
For past the peak and through those clouds awaits a soothing view
Until that day I'm stuck on old cold mountain paying dues


REPEAT CHORUS
