Is this it?

COLD SHOULDER
Written by: Kent Blazy, Garth Brooks, Kim Williams

1. There's a fire burning bright at our house tonight,
Slow music playing and soft candlelight.
On her lips I keep tasting the warm red wine.
I'm there in her arms but it's all in my mind.

CHORUS: The snow is piled high on the highway tonight.
I'm a ship lost at sea on this ocean of white,
Eighteen wheels anchored somewhere out of Boulder.
I wish I could hold her
Instead of huggin' this old cold shoulder.

2. This old highway is like a woman sometimes.
She can be your best friend but she's the real jealous kind.
She's the lady that leads me to the life I dream of.
She's the mistress that keeps me from the ones that I love. CHORUS

God, I wish I could hold her
Instead of huggin' this old cold shoulder.

A 45 with Thom singing Old Cold Shoulder is available from http://www.cowboymilt.com/single1.htm. Thom also has a website and can be contacted through that. I think it is Bresh.com. I suspect the Bresh song is different from Brooks and is a bit older.

thanks guys......no it is not the Garth Brooks song it starts off

Well I asked her for the time,
I said I hoped she wouldn't mind.
If I nipped out for a drink and then got back by nine,
and if she could be so sweet
as to knock up a bite to eat
I'd buy some king size cigarettes and a bottle of wine

BTW I checked out the Bresh.com but there are no lyrics there.

Old Cold Shoulder

I asked her at the time.. I said,
I hope she wouldn't mind
If I nipped out for a pint and I got back by nine
And if she could be so sweet
As to knock up a bite to eat
I'd buy some king-size cigarettes and a bottle of wine


And things were going grand
I had every detail planned
I had the little lady in the palm of my hand
But everything went wrong
When I stayed away too long
And couldn't make her understand


And I got that old cold shoulder
Seems that I dipped out again
I got that old cold shoulder
And it's the curse of the drinking man
And I said Oh No No

I got one foot in the door
And did she give me what for
I said, I'm sorry through and through
If I'm a little overdue
She said, A little overdue! Man you must have lost a screw!
Boy I'm telling you, the air was blue
And no excuses could I find
That would quickly come to mind
So in desperation I just kind of offered up the wine
And I can't repeat to you
What she told me I could do
With my chateau bottled bottle of wine!


Yes I got that Old Cold Shoulder
Seems that I dipped out again
I got that Old Cold Shoulder
And it's the curse of the drinking man
And I said Oh No No

So I grabbed myself a knife I said,
I'm gonna take my life
She said that that was fine
I'd just be saving her the time
Yes things were looking grim
And I could see I couldn't win
So I said that I'd give in and
I would take it on the chin
But then I saw that wasn't wise
The evil rose up in here eyes
She donned and oven glove
And she produced to my surprise
It was a four course snack
Completely black, and it was welded to the plate
Like the front was to the back
But then she said I had to eat it! If I didn't I could beat it!
Now how'd I get a woman like that


Yes I got that, Old cold shoulder
Seems that I dipped out again
I got that old cold shoulder
It's the curse of the drinking man and
I said Oh No No
OH NO !

This discography says START ALL OVER AGAIN b/w THAT OLD COLD SHOULDER, performed by Tom Bresh, was released as a single, ABC 17720, in 1977.

Bresh's own web site doesn't mention the song.

I couldn't find any lyrics or sound files.

Give me a few days or better yet ... a month. today is February 15, 2010. I have a record coming with the song on it. I'm going to have it put on a CD so I don't destroy the integrity of the song/record. If all goes well I'll try and put the whole thing on Youtube for all to enjoy. Cross your fingers and keep checking youtube.

A quick tip... Search Ebay for Tom Bresh and I believe that you'll find the song on his album Homemade Love.

Lyrics for THAT OLD COLD SHOULDER... by Tom Bresh

You lead me from my rambling life.
I kissed the past good-bye.
I bought your dreams and made them mine...
working nine to five.

(We) settled down but all too soon nothing felt the same.
And now you turn away each time I softly speak your name.

(And) here comes that old cold shoulder again.
One time you used to be my friend.
Here comes that old cold shoulder again.

Yeah... You the debutante in lace. And me the freeway bum.
You're at home in country lace. Me in city slums.
(Well) opposites attract I guess. That's all that's left to say.
'Cuz when you made me into you the magic went away.

Here comes that old cold shoulder again.
One time you used to be my friend.
Here comes that old cold shoulder again.

Now I kick a can into the ditch. The night wind's at my back.
The city lights are far behind. I'm walking down the track.
The freeway ramp is up ahead. I see the passing lights.
I'm through the fence and up the bank and off into the night.

Walking down that old cold shoulder again.
Seems like I've found a long lost friend.
Here on that old cold shoulder again.

Here comes that old cold shoulder again.
Walking down that old cold shoulder again.
