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" 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 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 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 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
