Like A Coat From The Cold

Clark Guy

        C  C/B      Am  Am/G   F          C      G
I found comfort and courage in bottles of whiskey
  C     C/B    Am               D            G
I swear to you friend that that life is some risky
       C      C/B  Am   Am/G    F                C
I have backed away quickly from those that would burn me
    C       C/B   Am        D             G
And stopped up my ears that no one should learn me

        F G    C
But the lady beside me
       F   G      C
is the one I have chosen
   F            G
to walk through life
       F    G        C
like a coat from the cold

I have flown like a bird from every cage that confined me
and broken every one of the ties that bind me
I have danced me around some sad ol' sad ol situations
and taken my share of those sweet invitations
