I found comfort and courage in bottles of whiskey
I swear to you friends that that life is some risky
I have backed away quickly from those who tried to burn me

And stopped up my ears that no one should learn me
But the lady beside me is the one I have chosen
To walk through my life like a coat from the cold

I have flown like a bird from each cage that confined me
And broken every one of the ties that bind me
And I have danced me around some sad ol' situations

And taken my share of them sweet temptations
But the lady beside me is the one I have chosen
To walk through my life like a coat from the cold
To walk through my life like a coat from the cold
