Let's build a song that tells it all

 Blind Dog Mike and the Howlers wrote this bluesy refrain

Original Lyrics


You say I'm in good hands
But they're around my throat
You say you're a good neighbor
But I know that's a joke
You've got this big gun
Pointed at me
So cover me
Cover me.  Cover me.
Won't somebody please cover me
Cover me.  Cover me.
Won't somebody please cover me
Take the insurance gun
Off-a me
And cover me.

 

Lyric by Gary


I see your expensive TV ads
All fancy and smart,
Telling me if I'm in an
Accident, you'll forgive me and we'll never part
But when I'm caused harm
By acts of nature,
Do you respond from conscience or
from greed for your profit that injures?
So cover me
Cover me.  Cover me.
Won't somebody please cover me
Cover me.  Cover me.
Won't somebody please cover me
Take the insurance gun
Off-a me
And cover me.

Lyric by Ken


Here in Baldwin county where most of the tourists come
Where we drink and play all day and have lots of fun
But when it comes to insurance we have little or none
and the state soaks up our taxes the way we soak up the sun
Won't somebody please cover me
Cover me.  Cover me.
Won't somebody please cover me
Take these big prices
Off-a me
And cover me

Lyrics by Sharla


Oh they say I’m in good hands and yes that is right
The hands of my heavenly Father who knows of my plight
Lord, you love justice so bring it swiftly please
And with your mighty hands, won’t you cover me.
Cover me. Cover me.
In your hands, I am safe and secure because you cover me.

I seek to be a good neighbor and stand for what is fair
Guidance and wisdom from the Spirit, O Lord, this is my prayer
Replace all of my doubts and fears and cover me with peace.
Cover me. Cover me.
 Sweet Holy Spirit won’t you please cover me.

Though their might appears to be greater than my own
Lord, like you did with David, please guide my stone
You are true to your promises, with me always you will be
Father God, with your empowering love cover me.
Cover me. Cover me.
Remind me of your faithfulness as your love covers me.

Guide me through to victory and let me gain relief
From those who seek to prosper as sophisticated thiefs
Lord, I offer up these prayers and entrust them to Thee
In the precious name of Jesus,
Whose redeeming blood covers me.

Lyric by Dan


Goin' on eighty-five years old
Been through nature's worst
Frederick, Ivan, Katrina, Danny,
Never made the first
claim.  Trusted you with my home
Now you want my social security
Please cover me
Like your daddies used to.
Won't somebody please cover me
Cover me.  Cover me.
Won't somebody please cover me
Take these big prices
Off-a me
And cover me.
