The Hand Song

	  		
INTRO:  G C Em D  G C Em D  G C Em D 

VERSE 1:
 
    B                   C 
The boy only wanted to give Mother something 
    G                      D 
And all of her roses had bloomed. 
B                     C 
Looking at her as he came rushing in with them 
G                        D 
Knowing her roses were doomed, 
Am            B               Em 
All she could see were some thorns buried deep 
    Am              B            Em         D 
And tears that were cried as she tended his wounds 

tabchorus
G C Em D And she knew it was love G C Em D It was one she could understand G C He was showing his love, Em D G C Em D And that's how he hurt his hands.

VERSE 2: B C He still remembers that night as child G D On his mother's knee B C She held him close and she opened her bible G D And quietly started to read, Am B Em And seeing a picture of Jesus he cried out, Am B Em D "Momma, he's got some scars just like me."

G C Em D And he knew it was love G C Em D It was one he could understand G C He was showing his love, Em D G C Em D And that's how he hurt his hands.

VERSE 3: B C Now the boy's grown and moved out on his own G D When Uncle Sam comes along. B C A foreign affair, but our young men were there G D And luck had his number drawn. Am B Em It wasn't that long till our hero was gone Am B Em D He gave to a friend what he learned from the cross.
tabchorus
G C Em D And they knew it was love G C Em D It was one they could understand G C He was showing his love, Em D G C Em D And that's how he hurt his hands.
