  Time Out of Mind sessions, Criteria studios, Miami FL - January 1997, album version  

I'm beginnin' to hear voices and there's no one around
Now I'm all used up and I kind of feel turned around
I went to church on Sunday as she passed by
And my love for her is takin' such a long time to die.
And I'm waist deep, waist deep in the mist
It's almost like, almost like I don't exist
I'm 20 miles outta town, cold irons bound.

Well the walls of pride are high and wide
Can't see over to the other side
It's such a sad thing to see such beauty decay
It's sadder still to feel your heart torn away.
One look at you and I'm out of control
Like the universe has swallowed me whole
I'm 20 miles outta town in cold irons bound.

There's too many people, too many to recall
I thought some of 'em were friends of mine, i was wrong about 'em all
Where the road is rocky and the hillside's mud
Up over my head nothin' but clouds of blood.
I found my world , I found my world in you
But your love just hasn't proved true
I'm 20 miles outta town cold irons bound
20 miles outta town, cold irons bound.

Well the winds in Chicago have turned me to shreds
Reality has always had too many heads
Some things last longer then you think they will
Some kind of things you can never kill.
It's you and you only I'm thinking about
But you can't see in an' it's hard lookin' out
I'm 20 miles outta town in cold irons bound.

Well the fat's in the fire and the water's in the tank
And the whiskey's in the jar and the money's in the bank
I tried to love and protect you because I cared
I'm gonna remember forever the joy we've shared.
But lookin' at you and I'm on my bended knee
You have no idea what you did to me
I'm 20 miles outta town in cold irons bound
20 miles outta town, cold irons bound.  up
