Cold In This Old City
Words Music by: Richard Hill

Well, it’s cold in this old city
The love is gone that held me bound
I might head out for the West Coast
I might be Florida bound
Ain’t got no rhyme or a reason
Not thinking ‘bout settling’ down

Well, it’s cold in this old city
The love is gone that held me bound

Well, the white line is the right line
Either way it goes, it’s out of this town
No one here to say goodbye too
Got nothin’ holding me down
Anywhere my thumb will take me
I’m as free as the wind I have found

Well, it’s cold in this old city
The love is gone that held me bound

(Instrumental Break)

Every mile I put behind me
The bus stops in those sleepy little towns
Put’s me one day far ahead now
Not thinkin’ ‘bout turning around
I might be sleepin’ on a roadside
Or bumbin’ with some good time friends I’ve found

Well, it’s cold in this old city
The love is gone that held me bound

Every steps a little lighter
I’m losing the chains that held me down
I might be bumbin’ out in Frisco
Might try out that New Orleans town
Wherever this old road should take me
I’m one more mile and further down the line

Well, it’s cold in this old city
The love is gone that held me bound
