Cold Sweat Lyrics

by Thin Lizzy

I got my money in a suitcase
I headed for the big race
I felt a chill on my backbone
As I hung up the telephone

Stone cold sober and stone cold sweat
Running down the back of my neck, girl
Take a little money, and nothing left to lose
And I got me a heavy bet

Cold, cold sweat

They say chances on the outside
They're looking pretty slim
I feel so lucky on the inside
I feel I'm gonna win

Stone cold sober and stone cold sweat
Running down the back of my neck, girl
Take a little money, and nothing left to lose
I got me a heavy bet

Cold, cold sweat

I've got a whole month's wages
I ain't seen that much in ages
I might spend it in stages
And move out to Las Vegas

Stone cold sober and stone cold sweat
Running down the back of my neck, girl
Take a little money, and nothing left to lose
I got me a heavy bet

Cold, cold sweat

I got my money in a suitcase
They say chances on the outside
I got a whole months wages, spend it in stages
And maybe some crowd gonna move out to Vegas

Stone cold sober and stone cold sweat
Stone cold crazy
Place another bet
