Brandy Clark's "Stripes" has hints of Johnny Cash-esque flavor!

Brandy Clark‘s “Stripes” was released as part of her 2012 self-titled EP. The song was a total success, receiving positive reviews from critics.

Country Universe‘s Ben Foster said of the track, “As the first radio bid from an exceptionally talented singer-songwriter, “Stripes” does not disappoint. It’s an ambitious, energetic debut single that makes the prospect of a full-length Brandy Clark album even more enticing.”

The music video features Brandy Clark in a county jail, singing about how orange isn’t exactly her color and about how she hates stripes. Watch below!

“Stripes” Lyrics

Woah, woah, woah, woah

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

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

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

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

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

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

Woah, woah, woah, woah
