Jason Isbell "Cover My Up" Lyrics
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 / 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 leaving this room / Till 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 on high / But I sobered up and I swore off that stuff / Forever this time / And the old lover's sing / I thought it'd be me who helped him get home / But home was a dream / One I'd never seen till you came along.
So girl, hang your dress up to dry / We ain't leaving this room / Till Percy Priest breaks open wide / And the river runs through / And 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 leaving this room / Till 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.

    What Morgan Wallen did for Jason Isbell’s song is very similar to what Merle Haggard did for Blaze Foley’s “If I Could Only Fly”. I still believe Merle Haggard’s If I Could Only Fly is one of the best renditions of a country song ever created, he was able to add emotion and a true sense of character to the song. And I think that’s exactly what Morgan Wallen did for “Cover Me Up”. Very well done.

    This song was supposed to be played as our first dance at our wedding in Sept. She passed away 1/28/21... She stood by me through a 4 year incarceration, never missed a visit or phone call. Although i will never hear her say i love you or feel her cuddle up next to me in bed, on my hardest days I feel her wrapping her wings around me telling me how proud she is that I've become the man she knew I could be, even when no one else did. I miss you so much Taters. "Thy self away, art present still with me; For thou not farther than my thoughts canst move, And I am still with them, and they with thee;" W. Shakespear

    In my opinion, Morgan Wallen doesn’t deserve everything that’s happening to him. The guy was intoxicated and wasn’t in a right state of mind. But has he said anything racist in his songs? No. I just think it’s ridiculous how he can get punished for 1 mistake. Like look at other music genres, they promote drugs and talk bad about woman. I’m not saying what he said was a good thing but he’s apologized for it and he should be forgiven.

    • JessicaJPB

      Fully agree! And he has black friends too, so people trying to make him seem racist is ridiculous lol. He’s probably been influenced by damn rappers.

      Yes he can and he also destroys covers of original songs making others think that they were his own :)

  • Corthrovin

    Just what we needed, a version of a great Isbell song sung with a super generic pop-country voice. I'll stick with the original and pretend this version doesn't exist.

    When Morgan cant get laid with his own music, he pulls this song out of his pocket. He is an exaggerated "country boy".

  • Water Dog

    Made it big off someone else's song about alcoholism. His music is shit. It's the same type country music that has been played on the radio for 20 years. There are way better musicians out there that dont have to lick the boots of executives to make it. Morgan licked those boots and didn't set himself apart. He's just the flavor of the year. His music will not live on like George Jones. This whiny country music needs another station called "whiny country".

    • Masked Phantom
      Masked Phantom

      Lol “made it big off someone else’s song” and it’s not even the song he made it big off of. You’re just another jealous dipshit clown. Country that’s been played for the last 20 yrs has mostly been garbage but this guys voice has got so much potential in comparison. If you can’t see that you’re just deaf and handicapped in the audio field
