Black Creek

Colorado Sandstorm Music, B.M.I.

 
1.
Cold rain poured down for thirty-six hours
  Black Creek rose up and washed out the bridge
  We were safe in the cabin, without heat or power
  No food in the cupboard, not much in the fridge
 
chorus
The lights went out. The phone went dead.
  We didn't care: we ate pickles and bread
   
2.
The cabin grew cold when the north wind howled
  We lit a fire of scrub oak and pine
  In a tangle of blankets in front of the couch
We spent the night with our bodies entwined
   
chorus
The lights went out. The phone went dead.
  We didn't care: we spent hours in bed
 
bridge Were we ever that young? Were we ever in love?
  Did we ever swear by the stars up above?
  Did we ever say, "Till death do us part"?
  Where does love go when it leaves a cold heart?
 
3.
I still live in that place at the end of the line
  You've gone to Nashberg or somewhere, I'm told
  And I still light fires of scrub oak and pine
  When the winter rains come and the cabin grows cold
   
chorus
The lights go out. The phone goes dead.
There's a picture of you by the side of my bed
  The lights go out. The phone goes dead.
  Nobody warms your side of the bed
 

"When I bought my house, there was a hundred year flood, and several bridges in the area washed out. I lost the foot bridge that led to my house, which is surrounded by scrub oak and pine trees.

"It has one of my favorite lines: Where does love go when it leaves a cold heart?"

"I stole 'Nashberg' from my friend Dave Schaper. He said he stole it from Lyle Lovett."
