    Lyrics

    This shirt is old and faded
    All the color's washed away
    I've had it now for more damn years
    Than I can count anyway
    I wear it beneath my jacket
    With the collar turned up high
    So old I should replace it
    But I'm not about to try

    This shirt's got silver buttons
    And a place upon the sleeve
    Where I used to set my heart up
    Right there anyone could see
    This shirt is the one I wore to every boring high school dance
    Where the boys ignored the girls
    And we all pretended to like the band

    This shirt was a pillow for my head
    On a train through Italy
    This shirt was a blanket beneath the love
    We made in Argeles
    This shirt was lost for three whole days
    In a town near Buffalo
    'Till I found the locker key
    In a downtown Trailways bus depot

    This shirt was the one I lent you
    And when you gave it back
    There was a rip inside the sleeve
    Where you rolled your cigarettes
    It was the place I put my heart
    Now look at where you put a tear
    I forgave your thoughtlessness
    But not the boy who put it there

    This shirt was the place your cat
    Decided to give birth to five
    And we stayed up all night watching
    And we wept when the last one died
    This shirt is just an old faded piece of cotton
    Shining like the memories
    Inside those silver buttons

    This shirt is a grand old relic
    With a grand old history
    I wear it now for Sunday chores
    Cleaning house and raking leaves
    I wear it beneath my jacket
    With the collar turned up high
    So old I should replace it
    But I'm not about to try
