Lyric discussion by ONaCarousel 

This song wasn't the first place I've heard someone say that they weren't fit to touch someone else's garment. The times I've heard it, it was usually said sarcastically. I always figured it was in reference to a bible story. Jesus was walking through a crowd of people, everyone grabbing at him with hopes of being cured from whatever ailed them. Then this one very ill woman crawled her way close enough to flick the hem of Jesus' garment, thus being cured. There's more to the story and I'm sure someone will be quick to correct me but that's the gist of it, I'm probably not the best person to be telling bible stories ...but THAT ladies and gentlemen is your bible story of the day. :)
