“I’ve got your back”

It’s not an expression I normally use. I’m much more likely to say, “I’ll take care of you,” or “I’m looking out for you.” I also remember only one time that “I’ve got your back” was said to me. It’s something I’ll never forget, but not just because to me it was an unfamiliar turn of phrase.
