Cold Shot
by
Stevie Ray Vaughan
 
Couldn't Stand The Weather
©1984
 
     The second wind following Vaughan's torrential debut, Texas Flood, Couldn't Stand the Weather is no less severe a storm. Vaughan classics such as "Cold Shot," "Scuttle Buttin'," and "Honey Bee" are flanked by reverent, impassioned takes on Jimmy Reed's "Tin Pan Alley" and Guitar Slim's slinky "The Things That I Used to Do". An ambitious, heavily improvised reading of Jimi Hendrix's "Voodoo Chile (Slight Return)" finds the late Dallas native coaxing soaring, spitfire dialogues between his Texas-cured voice and blues-abused Stratocaster.

Lyrics to Cold Shot:

Once was a sweet thang baby....Held out her lovin' in our hands
Now I reach to kiss your lips....The touch don't mean a thing
And that's a cold shot baby....Yeah that's a drag
A cold shot baby....I let our love go bad
 
Remember the way that you loved me....Do anything I said
Now I see you out somewhere....You won't give me the time of day
And that's a cold shot darlin'....Yeah that's a drag
And that's a cold shot baby....We let our love go bad
 
I really meant I was sorry....For ever causin' you pain
You showed your appreciation....By walkin' out anyway
And that's a cold shot baby....Yeah that's a drag
And that's a cold shot baby...We let our love go bad
 
So sad....Too bad....So sad
Don't let our true love run cold baby
