Ashley McBryde – The Jacket lyrics
[Verse 1]
It's got a hole in the elbow, bandana pocket
Silver button missin' from the snap at the bottom
I said, "That thing's seen better days, Daddy, you should toss it"
And he said "Darlin I can’t"

[Chorus]
This thing is two-thousand bonfires, I hitchhiked to Boulder
It's kept a million raindrops off your mama's shoulders
My heart on my sleeve, my life in these patches
Then he wrapped his arms around me in that old
Jean jacket

[Verse 2]
It's been a bed for a hound-dog, a picnic blanket
There's blood on the collar from a punk who tried to take it from me
Seen Willie Nelson play four or five states
The best Levi ever made

[Chorus]
We strung for miles of barbed wire in Corinth, Mississippi
A night in county jail with an old drunk and a hippy
It's my heart on the sleeve, it's my life in these patches
With his arms wrapped around me in that old
Jean jacket

[Outro]
It ain't much to look at, but he let me have it
So I could feel his arms around me in that old
Jean jacket
Jean jacket
