BY JASON ISBELL, FROM SOUTHEASTERN 

INTRO: GUITAR INTERLUDE LIKE 1 LINE OF VERSE
*CAPO 2; KEY OF E

VERSE 1:
               D                       G                      D
A heart on the run, keeps a hand on the gun, it canít trust anyone
               D                 G                            D
I was so sure, what I needed was more, tried to shoot out the sun
                Bm                     G                     D
In days when we raged, we flew off the page, such damage was done
              D                        G                         D 
But I made it through, Ďcause somebody knew, I was meant for someone

CHORUS 1:
   D                            G                         D
So girl leave your boots by the bed we ainít leaviní this room
D                     G                      D
Someone needs medical help or the magnoliaís bloom
     Em                       G                       Bm
Itís cold in this house and I ainít goiní out to chop wood
            D                   G                   D 
So cover me up and know youíre enough to use me for good

VERSE 2:
                      D                          G                      D
Put your faith to the test, when I tore off your dress, in Richmond all high
          D                        G                   D
I sobered up, and I swore off that stuff, forever this time 
                   Bm                       G                      D
In the old loversí scene, I thought itíd be me, who helped him get home
               D                    G                    D
But home was a dream, one Iíd never seen, Ďtil you came along

CHORUS 2:
   D                          G                          D
So girl hang your dress up to dry, we ainít leaviní this room
    D                         G                       D
The Percy Priest breakís open wide and the river runs through*
Em                        G                           Bm
Carries this house on the stones like a piece of driftwood
         D                   G                   D 
Cover me up and know youíre enough to use me for good
