Cover Me Up  Jason Isbell

Drop D Capo 1 (or tune down 1/2 step and play in Drop D)
A heart on the [D]run keeps a hand on a [G]gun
It can't trust any[D]one
I was so [D]sure what I needed was [G]more
Tried to shoot out the [D]sun
In [D/C#]days when we [Bm]raged, we flew off the [G]page
Such damage was [D]done
But I made it [D]through cause somebody [G]knew
I was meant for some[D]one
Chorus 1:
So [D]girl leave your boots by the [G]bed, we ain't leavin this [D]room
Till someone needs medical [G]help or the magnolias [D]bloom
It's [Em]cold in this house and I [G]ain't goin out to chop [Bm]wood
So cover me [D]up and know you're e[G]nough to use me for [D]good
Put your faith to the test when I tore off your dress
In Richmond on high
I sobered up, I swore off that stuff
Forever this time
In the old lover's scene, I thought it'd be me
Who helped him get home
Home was a dream, one i'd never seen
Till you came along
Chorus 2:
So girl hang your dress up to dry we ain't leavin this room
Till Percy priest?? breaks open wide and the river runs through
Carries this house on the stones like a piece of drift wood
So cover me up and know you're enough to use me for good
Chorus 1
Cover me up and know your enough to use me for good
