Lyrics to Cover Me Up A heart on the run

Keeps a hand on the gun

You 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

To somebody new

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 going 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 all night



I sobered up

I swore off that stuff

Forever this time



And the old lovers see

I'd 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 drift wood

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 going 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
