: Where did the expression "you got my back" or "He/she's got my back" come from?
: Isn't it a fairly new expression?
If you go to: www.phrases.org.uk/bulletin_board/41/messages/676.html
and go all the way to the end,you may find a useful comment. The term "fairly new" is pretty elastic, butI believe you're right. SS
