Guy Clark — Like A Coat From The Cold lyrics

I found comfort and courage from bottles of whiskey.
I swear to you friends these old high times sure seem risky.
I have backed away gently from those who tried to burn me.
And blocked up my ears that no one should learn me.
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/guy-clark-like-a-coat-from-the-cold-lyrics.html ]
Chorus
But the lady beside me is the one I have chosen
To walk through life with me
Like a coat from the cold

I have flown like a bird from every cage that confined me
And broken every one of the ties that bind me
I have danced me around some sad ol' sad ol situatioons
And taken my share of those sweet invitations

Chorus
