From the recording Keep On Walkin'
Cold, Cold Night – I don’t think you ever get over losing your Mom. This is just me, letting her know I’m in love and doin’ fine.
Cold Cold Night
Verse 1: I sure wish Ma had lived this long to see where I am now.
In love at last, unlike the past, having spoke my wedding vow.
She’d laugh with joy at her little boy who finally got it right,
Who found the cure and won’t endure another cold, cold, night.
Verse 2: I know she’d have advice to give. The woman always did.
The best that she could give to us, ask any of her kids.
She’d say that it’s about time and I’d better treat her right.
This angel who will keep me from another cold, cold, night.
Refrain: And I’d say, “Ma, this I can do.
“’cause you taught me how. All I need now’s to be more like you.”
I’ll treat her with care. My arms for her pain.
Storm winds may blow but she’ll never know one drop of rain.
Verse 3: I hope somewhere you’re listening and that you understand.
And that you know I finally growed full up to be a man.
You may be gone but here in song you’re never far from sight.
Just thought you’d like to know I’ll never have a cold, cold, night.
I thought you’d like to know I’ll never have a cold, cold night.
