the hand song

Nickel Creek



---------------------------------------------


 F#G
The boy only wanted to give Mother something
 DA
And all of her roses had bloomed.
 F#G
 Looking at her as he came rushing in with them
 DA
 Knowing her roses were doomed,
 EMF#Bm
 All she could see were some thorns buried deep
 EmF#BmA
And the tears that were cried as she tended his wounds
CHORUS: (she)
 DGBmA
And (she) knew it was love  
 DGBmA
It was one (she) could understand 
 DG
He was showing his love,
 BmADGBmA
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)
tag: last 3 lines of chorus
