Cover Me Up
By Jason Isbell
Tabbed By Larry Mofle

Drop D Capo 1 (or tune down 1/2 step and play in Drop D)

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

Chorus 1:
   D                            G                         D
So girl leave your boots by the bed, we ain't leavin this room
                           G                     D  
Till someone needs medical help or the magnolias bloom
     Em                       G                      Bm
It's cold in this house and I ain't goin out to chop wood
            D                   G                   D
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
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

Percy Priest refers to a dam and reservoir east of Nashville.

Not a big deal.. but the actual lyric is "carries this house down the Stone's like a piece of driftwood..."

The Stone's is the river that forms Percy Priest Lake. If the Percy Priest Dam breaks open wide, it would carry them down the Stone's River.

Good job on the chords.
