G            C          G             C     G
Well Val and Johnny out in break neck wood
              C             F          C 
She’s on his nerves and the car’s not running good
       G              C  G        C
And the last stations gone on the radio
        G                  C   F     C
and it’s late and dark and cold and it’s turned to snow
         F                C
and the cigarette lighter warms his face as he 
G              C      G            C       G 
rolls down his window to help keep himself awake

well back on Laurier well she danced for him
in a beat up apartment to kris kristopherson
with a newspaper hat and a t shirt to fight the cold
till it taken her to get beer well she’d run across the road
and its one for our friends and too soon to quiet down
and she kicks off her old shoes and turns the stereo real loud

slide break

Well she moved in with him after her room mates were out 
and she had two bags of clothes and a plant and a leather couch
and they painted the walls and moved the furniture around
to make a fresh start and he cooked her dinner 
and she bought him beer in the local bar
and she told long stories 
and he kicked her ass in pool 
and she was working a store job 
and he was going back to school

well they first met on a back porch in a hurricane 
at a house warming party somebody had on St Urbain
and it’s late and too cold for her to walk alone
he was way too drunk for a cab so he drove her home 
and her head rattled against the window in time to Blue Wing
and he let her off at home and said, “Hey, I’d really love to see you again.”

piano break

now they’re out on the highway and they’re running out of gas
and the windows are frozen and the windshield wipers fly up
and it’s four in the morning and they both got frozen feet and he drinks
his ninth cup of coffee and falls asleep 
and she screams the tires skid and he reach’s his arms out to protect her
as they break through the wall of the bridge and disappear into the river
