the hand song

Nickel Creek


The boy only wanted to give Mother something
And all of her roses had bloomed.
 Looking at her as he came rushing in with them
 Knowing her roses were doomed,
 All she could see were some thorns buried deep
And the tears that were cried as she tended his wounds
CHORUS: (she)
And (she) knew it was love  
It was one (she) could understand 
He was showing his love,
And that's how he hurt his hands.   
Verse 2:
He still remembers that night as child
On his mother's knee
She held him close and she opened her bible
And quietly started to read,
And seeing a picture of Jesus he cried out,
"Momma, he's got some scars just like me."
CHORUS: (he)
(solos over a verse and chorus)
Verse 3:
Now the boy's grown and moved out on his own
When Uncle Sam comes along.
A foreign affair, but our young men were there
And luck had his number drawn.
It wasn't that long till our hero was gone
He gave to a friend what he learned from the cross.
CHORUS: (they)
