Boots, Bras, & Drawers

Updated: Aug 24

I was 14 and getting ready to start high school when I wrote "Boots, Bras, & Drawers". My mom said "Dougie!" (that's what they call me back home) "What do you need to start school?".

I said, "I need a new pair of boots, some bras, & underwear"

My mom replied "Boots, Bras, & Drawers!"

GASP! *Blank Stare* I ran to my bedroom and this song just fell out of me.

Thanks Mom! And a special thank you to Claire Galley who helped me put the chords to this work. #SulphurHighSchool #BBD

Boots, Bras, & Drawers

C

CHORUS:

C F C

Well there were boots, bras, and drawers laying all over my bedroom floor

F G

And I was packing up to leave him when he came stomping through that door

C F C

He said what’s going here I said I’m leaving you for good

F G (rest) C

And I left him crying as I packed up my Boots, Bras, and Drawers

VERSE 1:

F C

Well I’d been thinking about leaving him since the day we go together

F C G

Cause he got to talking about marriage and me hanging around forever

F C

He had pictured in his mind me making him a family tree

D7 C G

But in my head it was like Deirks said still lot of leaving left to be

F C G (rest) C

Now I’m just fine with what’s mine and my Boots,Bras, and Drawers

CHORUS:

C F C

Well there were Boots, Bras, and Drawers laying all over my bedroom floor

C F G

And I was packing up to leave him when he came stomping through that door

C F C

He said what’s going on here I said I’m leaving you for good

C F G (rest) C

And I left him crying as I packed up my Boots, Bras, and Drawers

VERSE 2:

F C

Well now that I left him I am just as happy as I can be

F C G

Cause without him I’m able to be independent and free

F C

He’s probably worried about me but about him I don’t have a care

D7 C G

To tell you the truth, I’m really just glad he’s out of my hair

F C G (rest) C

Cause now my life is fun, I’m always on the run in my Boots, Bras, and Drawers

CHORUS:

C F C

Well there were Boots, Bras, and Drawers laying all over my bedroom floor

C F G

And I was packing up to leave him when he came stomping through that door

C F C

He said what’s going on here I said I’m leaving you for good

C F G (rest) C

And I left him crying as I packed up my Boots, Bras, and Drawers

F C G C

I said I left him crying as I packed up my Boots, Bras, and Drawers.
