Elle King – Jackson Lyrics

Jackson Lyrics – Elle King

Mama’s dead and gone
Papa ain’t there
Mama’s dead and gone
Papa don’t care

Brother buried his hand
Pocket full of shotgun shells
He’s just a married man
Stuck in that whiskey well

What’s left of my backbone
Is building this broken home
Building it up just to leave
City will chain me
How could you blame me?
Not breaking the law to break free
So please take Jackson out of me

Sister lays her head
She’s just a lizard queen
She’s known too many beds
But she sure can sing
Your hopeless soul
Begging for more time
You’d rather die than get old
Too bad you ain’t killing kind

What’s left of my backbone
Is building this broken home
Building it up just to leave
City will chain me
How could you blame me?
Not breaking the law to break free
So please take Jackson out of me

Well, this country weighs me down
There’s nothing left for me in this town
These dreams I make before I wake
Well, I won’t waste no more time, hey

What’s left of my backbone
Is building this broken home
Building it up just to leave
City will chain me
How could you blame me?
Not breaking the law to break free
So please take Jackson out of me

Take Jackson out of me
Take Jackson out of me
