Must be a cold front coming Cause I saw the eastbound C&O And the coal cars were dusted with a half inch of snow And that boy'll drive me crazy Don't know what I'll do with him School will be out tomorrow if that cold front moves in Calling out To the dying daylight The shadows of the mountains Bringing on the night The old folks like to whisper He favors your side in his face When he gets a little older He's going to lead a merry chase (chorus) When I'm all alone it's all right It Isn't going to wound my pride If anyone can claim they're all right So can I I wrecked the El Camino Would have been DWI So I just walked off and left it Laying on its side The troopers found it in the morning And they said it's purely luck I wasn't killed I probably ought to quit my drinking But I don't believe I will (chorus) He used to ask about you About a million times a day I got so tired of trying to answer I just turned my head away Now he don't pay me much attention He's not asking anymore I guess he'd probably know you If you walked back in the door Calling out to the empty night Watching as the snowflakes Come dancing round the light Dancing up against the window It's like they're peeking through the glass And they hover for a moment And then they fall on past Calling out
