It was plain to see
She didn't know how to ski
She said, "We don't get much snow in Tampa Bay"

She said, "I got confused
"Ended up on the blues
"I was hopin' someone like you would come my way"

I said, "Let's sit here, and enjoy the view
"Let you catch your breath for a minute or two"

The air is thin in Jackson Hole
When the sun goes down, it's bitter cold
Unless you can charm somebody into keepin' you warm
Find a hole in the wall with a cover band
Baileys and beer, yeah, you laugh and dance
And you sing along to every song
And fall like the snow in Jackson Hole

Spent a couple of nights
Drownin' in her eyes
Gettin' lost between those tan lines from the coast

All the words we said
All the promises
I was sure she'd never let me go

But your heart can play tricks on your mind
When you're makin' love at the timber line

The air is thin in Jackson Hole
When the sun goes down, it's bitter cold
Unless you can charm somebody into keepin' you warm
Find a hole in the wall with a cover band
Baileys and beer, yeah, you laugh and dance
And you sing along to every song
And fall like the snow in Jackson Hole

She had to leave on Sunday
She almost missed her airplane
We kissed goodbye, I told her "I'll call you first thing in the mornin'"
When I woke up on Monday
I dialed the number she gave
An ol' man answered, said "son, no one lives here by that name"

The air is thin in Jackson Hole
When the sun goes down, it's bitter cold
Unless you can charm somebody into keepin' you warm
Find a hole in the wall with a cover band
Baileys and beer, yeah, you laugh and dance
And you sing along to every song
That's how hearts get broke in Jackson Hole

In Jackson Hole
