It was a perfect day for the end of May, they say a record high

I stared at that green water when out of the blue and by surprise

She had her feet up on the cooler as she put our love on ice

She grabbed a beer, said, “I’m out of here, “

And walked out of my life

That was a cold one

I never will get back

Yeah she had to leave, did she have to leave me one beer

Short of a twelve pack?

She left me hanging high and dry in that hell high summer sun

Damn babe, that was a cold one

It ain’t the first time, or the last time

I watched love walk out

But it’s damn sure the one time

I still ain’t forgot about

I still like to drink a beer but a long neck I won’t do

‘Cause every time I see one sweating, man

I break out in one too

That was a cold one

I never will get back

Yeah she had to leave, did she have to leave me one beer

Short of a twelve pack?

She left me hanging high and dry in that hell high summer sun

Damn babe, that was a cold one

That was a cold one

I never will get back

Yeah she had to leave, did she have to leave me one beer

Short of a twelve pack?

She left me hanging high and dry in that hell high summer sun

Damn babe, that was a cold one

Damn babe, that was a cold one (damn!)
