  • A cement building
    White cinderblocks
    And faded red lips
    The sign read "Cold Spot"
    He worked behind the counter
    To them he was an old man
    When my world was crumbling
    My grandpa gave me his hand

    It was crickets, minnows and kerosene
    RC, moon pies and a softball team
    Learned about life
    Learned about girls
    Learned about livin' in this cold, cruel world
    It's where you bought your tag for your white-tailed deer
    Where the southern baptist bought the most beer
    A hole in the wall with holes in the wall
    From behind this counter you saw it all
    At the Cold Spot

    It was cool in July, warm in December
    If I live a hundred years
    I'll always remember
    The song and the hum of that old ceiling fan
    And his North Georgia voice saying, "Buddy, you can"
    Out here I'm just a kid trying to make a name
    I am who I am because he raised Kane selling

    Crickets and minnows and kerosene
    RC, moon pies and a softball team
    Learned about life
    Learned about girls
    Learned about livin' in this cold, cruel world
    It's where you bought your tag for your white-tailed deer
    Where the southern baptists bought the most beer
    A hole in the wall with holes in the wall
    From behind this counter you saw it all
    At the Cold Spot
    Oh yeah
    At the Cold Spot

    It was crickets, minnows and kerosene
    RC, moon pies and a softball team
    Learned about life
    Learned about girls
    Learned about livin' in this cold, cruel world
    It was heaven on earth when my world was hell
    And the big stores came and the business failed
    But all my memories are alive and well
    At the Cold Spot
    Oh yeah
    At the Cold Spot
    Take me back to the Cold Spot Writer/s: Allen Shamblin, Kane Brown, Tom Douglas
