You Got me anxious Nervous Always at your service Living broke, in Tahoe, CA Hitched up the Chevy, Hoping for a baby I left a good life. For a life on the road I can't remember when It's been this cold... High in the mountains It was 20 below

You left for Reno For a job interview, Said you'd be back in the late afternoon Two days later Middle of the night You stumble in Mumblin' turn on the light... Lips blue, no shoes...Lookin' like a wreck Slink in,sheepish grin I am sooo damn mad Another notice to shut off the lights Blaming me for another fight I can't remember when I Been this Cold High in the mountains It was 20 below...

You say Get me some coffee Where's my cigarette's? Where's the rest of my brandy Bitch,I'm froze to death Don't just stand there Ain't you glad that I'm home Here's the story If you really want to know

The car broke down I was on the way home The tire blew baby I was all alone (back ups ): your lying lying lying

Lost my cell phone The battery was fried No way to call you I almost died The cops came around I got the Denver boot Believe me baby I'm telling the truth Would I lie? Down in the valley The traffic was slowed High in the mountain It was 20 below

Smilin Smirking Actin like a jerk Sniffling blowing Say you've got a cold

Honey what's that Powder round your nose?

I never knew, You could be this cold High in the mountain It was 20 below.

I say where's the money To pay the rent Gotta another notice to turn off the gas I can't live here I wanna go home Is this why I married you For a life on the road gonna go back to sunny californ I never knew I could be this cold High in the mountains It was 20 below
