Brandy Clark: Stripes (album released 22/10/13

There are a lot of great country music prison songs.  This new release by Nashville singer-songwriter Brandy Clark has to be one of the best.  Called Stripes, it’s about a woman who would happily pull the trigger on her cheating man…but she hates wearing prison stripes or orange – both styles of USA prison wear.

Written & Recorded by Brandy Clark (source)

(Capo on 1)

Woah, (Am) woah, (G) woah, (Am) woah (G)

(Verse 1)
You were (Am)lyin' there with nothing on, but a goofy little grin and a platinum blonde
I (G)can't believe you'd do that on our (Am)bed
I got a pistol and I got a bullet and a pissed off finger just'a itchin' to pull it
The (G)only thing keepin' me from losin' my (Am)head

(Chorus)
Is I hate (C)stripes and orange ain't my (Am)color
And if I (C)squeeze that trigger tonight, I'll be wear-(G)in' one or the other
There's no (Am)crime of passion worth a crime of fashion, the (F)only thing savin' your life
Is that I (C)don't look good in (G)orange and I hate (Am)stripes

Woah, (G) woah, (Am) woah (G)

(Verse 2)
I could (Am)fall in love with the prison guard, I could sell cigarettes in the prison yard
Don't (G)think hard time would be that hard on (Am)me
I could pick up trash on the side of the road, but I'd die if I saw someone I know
Ain't the (G)chains, it's the clothes that's stoppin' (Am)me

(Chorus)
Is I hate (C)stripes and orange ain't my (Am)color
And if I (C)squeeze that trigger tonight, I'll be wear-(G)in' one or the other
There's no (Am)crime of passion worth a crime of fashion, the (F)only thing savin' your life
Is that I (C)don't look good in (G)orange and I hate (Am)stripes

(Bridge)
Oh, and (C)one shot ain't worth a bad (Am)mugshot
God knows I wouldn't (F)be caught holdin' up a number
While the whole town's (G)starin' at the picture in the paper of me wearin' (Am)stripes

Solo:  / / / |(Am) |(F) |(F) |(C) |(C) |(G) |(G)

There's no (Am)crime of passion worth a crime of fashion, the (F)only thing savin' your life
Is that I (C)don't look good in (G)orange and I hate (Am)stripes

(Chorus)
And orange ain't my (F)color
And if I (C)squeeze that trigger tonight, I'll be wear-(G)in' one or the other
There's no (Am)crime of passion worth a crime of fashion, the (F)only thing savin' your life
Is that I (C)don't look good in (G)orange and I hate (Am)stripes

Woah, (G) woah, (Am) woah, (G) woah (Am) -----

You were lyin’ there with nothing on
But a goofy little grin and a platinum blonde
I can’t believe you’d do that on our bed
I got a pistol and I got a bullet
And a pissed off finger just’a itchin’ to pull it
The only thing keepin’ me from losin’ my head

[CHORUS:]
Is I hate stripes and orange ain’t my color
And if I squeeze that trigger tonight
I’ll be wearin’ one or the other
There’s no crime of passion worth a crime of fashion
The only thing savin’ your life
Is that I don’t look good in orange and I hate stripes

Woah, woah, woah

[VERSE 2:]
I could fall in love with the prison guard
I could sell cigarettes in the prison yard
Don’t think hard time would be that hard on me
I could pick up trash on the side of the road
But I’d die if I saw someone I know
Ain’t the chains, it’s the clothes that’s stoppin’ me

[CHORUS:]
I hate stripes and orange ain’t my color
And if I squeeze that trigger tonight
I’ll be wearin’ one or the other
There’s no crime of passion worth a crime of fashion
The only thing savin’ your life
Is that I don’t look good in orange and I hate stripes

[BRIDGE:]
Oh, and one shot ain’t worth a bad mugshot
God knows I wouldn’t be caught holdin’ up a number
While the whole town’s starin’ at the picture
In the paper of me wearin’ stripes

[FINAL CHORUS:]
There’s no crime of passion worth a crime of fashion
The only thing savin’ your life
Is that I don’t look good in orange and I hate stripes
And orange ain’t my color
And if I squeeze that trigger tonight
I’ll be wearin’ one or the other
There’s no crime of passion worth a crime of fashion
The only thing savin’ your life
Is that I don’t look good in orange and I hate stripes
