Cold One

Album: The Outsiders (2014)
Charted: 88
  • It was a perfect day for the end of May, they say a record high
    I stared at that green water when out of the blue and by surprise
    She had her feet up on the cooler as she put our love on ice
    She grabbed a beer, said, "I'm out of here,"
    And walked out of my life

    That was a cold one
    I never will get back
    Yeah she had to leave, did she have to leave me one beer
    Short of a twelve pack?
    She left me hanging high and dry in that hell high summer sun
    Damn babe, that was a cold one

    It ain't the first time, or the last time
    I watched love walk out
    But it's damn sure the one time
    I still ain't forgot about
    I still like to drink a beer but a long neck I won't do
    'Cause every time I see one sweating, man
    I break out in one too

    That was a cold one
    I never will get back
    Yeah she had to leave, did she have to leave me one beer
    Short of a twelve pack?
    She left me hanging high and dry in that hell high summer sun
    Damn babe, that was a cold one

    That was a cold one
    I never will get back
    Yeah she had to leave, did she have to leave me one beer
    Short of a twelve pack?
    She left me hanging high and dry in that hell high summer sun
    Damn babe, that was a cold one

    Damn babe, that was a cold one (damn!) Writer/s: ERIC CHURCH, JEFF HYDE, LYNN HUTTON
