"Blue and Grey Shirt" as written by and John Mark Eitzel....
I sat up all morning and I waited for you
With my blue and grey shirt on
Yeah I thought that's my lucky one

I'll sit and face the road now
I don't have a heavy load now
I got nothing to keep me hanging around here
From now on

Where's the compassion
To make your tired heart sing
I'm tired of being a spokesman
For every tired thing

There's nothing in the world outside
Just some things that I see from the side
I'm just a shy boy sitting in a house
When everyone is gone from now on

I sat up all morning and I waited for you
With my blue and grey shirt on
Yeah that's my favorite one
I sat up all morning so why did you call?
Cause now I just sing my songs
For people that are gone from now on

    My OpinionThat's very interesting and I would not have guessed that.

    General CommentIn an interview from 1988: "Blue and Grey Shirt" is about sitting on a doorstep waiting for Satan.

    He also happened to be drunk.
