Cover Me Up Lyrics

A heart on the run keeps a hand on the gun
It can’t trust anyone
I was so sure what I needed was more
Tried to shoot out the sun
In days when we raged, we flew off the page
Such damage was done
But I made it through, ’cause somebody knew
I was meant for someone

…………………………*……………………….

So girl, leave your boots by the bed
We ain’t leavin’ this room
‘Til someone needs medical help
Or the magnolias bloom
It’s cold in this house and I ain’t goin’ out to chop wood
So cover me up and know you’re enough
To use me for 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
And the old lovers sing
“I thought it’d be me who helped him get home”
But home was a dream, one I’d never seen
‘Til you came along

…………………………*……………………….

So girl, hang your dress up to dry
We ain’t leavin’ this room
‘Til Percy Priest breaks open wide
And the river runs through
Carries this house on the stones like a piece of driftwood
Cover me up and know you’re enough
To use me for good

…………………………*……………………….

So girl, leave your boots by the bed
We ain’t leavin’ this room
‘Til someone needs medical help
Or the magnolias bloom
It’s cold in this house and I ain’t goin’ out to chop wood
So cover me up and know you’re enough
To use me for good
Cover me up and know you’re enough
To use me for good.



A heart on the run, keeps a hand on the gun, it can’t trust anyone

I was so sure, what I needed was more, tried to shoot out the sun

In days when we raged, we flew off the page, such damage was done

But I made it through, ‘cause somebody knew, I was meant for someone


So girl leave your boots by the bed we ain’t leavin’ this room

Till someone needs medical help or the magnolias bloom

It’s cold in this house and I ain’t goin’ out to chop wood

So cover me up and know you’re enough to use me for good


Put your faith to the test, when I tore off your dress, in Richmond-on-high

I sobered up, and I swore off that stuff, forever this time

And the old lovers’ say, I thought it’d be me, who helped him get home

But home was a dream, one I’d never seen, ‘til you came along


So girl hang your dress up to dry, we ain’t leavin’ this room

Til the Percy Priest breaks open wide and the river runs through*

Carries this house on the stones like a piece of driftwood

Cover me up and know you’re enough to use me for good



So girl leave your boots by the bed we ain’t leavin’ this room

Til someone needs medical help or the magnolia’s bloom

It’s cold in this house and I ain’t goin’ out to chop wood

So cover me up and know you’re enough to use me for good


Cover me up and know you’re enough to use me for good
