D                 Dsus4         D                A
This shirt is old and faded, all the color's washed away
D                 Dsus4         D                A
I've had it more damn years than I can count anyway
Bm            G                               A
I wear it beneath my jacket, with the collar turned up high
Bm        G                         A             D   Dsus4   D
So old I should replace it, but I'm not about to try


D                 Dsus4         D              A
This shirt's got silver buttons, and a place upon the sleeve
D                 Dsus4         D                        A
Where I used to set my heart up right there where anyone could see
Bm                G                          A
This shirt is the one I wore to every boring high school dance
Bm              G                                        A          D   Dsus4 D A
Where the boys ignored the girls and we all pretended to like the band


F#m                 G          D                       A
This shirt was a pillow for my head on a train through Italy
F#m               G                  D               A
This shirt was a blanket beneath the love we made in Argeles
F#m             G                   D                   A
This shirt was lost for three whole days in a town near Buffalo
Bm              Esus4             E7        A            D   Dsus4 D A 
Till I found the locker key in a downtown Trailways bus depot


D                 Dsus4               D                A
This shirt is the one I lent you, and when you gave it back
D             Dsus4             D                     A
It had a rip inside the sleeve where you rolled your cigarettes
Bm                 G                                   A
It was the place I put my heart, now look at where you put a tear
Bm             G                                    A
I forgave your thoughtlessness, but not the boy who put it there


F#m                G              D               A
This shirt was the place your cat decided to give birth to five
F#m               G                  D                     A
And we stayed up all night watching, and we wept when the last one died
F#m            G          D              A
This shirt is just an old faded piece of cotton
Bm           Esus4     E7     A                D   Dsus4 D A 
Shining like memories inside those silver buttons


D                 Dsus4         D                A
This shirt is a grand old relic with a grand old history
D                 Dsus4         D                A
I wear it now for Sunday chores, cleaning house and raking leaves
Bm           G                               A
I wear it beneath my jacket with the collar turned up high
Bm        G                         A          D   Dsus4 D A
So old I should replace it, but I'm not about to try

[Outro]
D   Dsus4 D  A     x4
