Lovin' Arms (161/365)

Lovin' Arms - The Wood Brothers: I like these lyrics, "But what if he's got slippery hands?" They're cool, bold, and so human. The music is tight, like the siblings that made it. I just know Loaded will become a favorite. Definitely one of the best CDs I've heard this year.

And you've got a good mind to pray
They say it's all part of his plan,
But what if he's got slippery hands?

Dear Anonymous,
The lyrics are...

ridin’ a big jet plane
cryin’ into your sleeve
’cause you miss those lovin’ arms
lullaby keeps on playin’
and you’re thinkin’ it’s a dream
’cause you miss those lovin’ arms
and you got a good mind to pray
they say it’s all part of his plan
but what if he’s got slippery hands?
it’s a sad face you’re wearin’
like a burned out sun
’cause you miss those lovin’ arms
you’d think a grown man would care
about his boot lace undone
but you just miss those lovin’ arms
yeah you miss those lovin’ arms
and you got a good mind to pray
they say it’s all part of his plan
but what if he’s got slippery hands?
god damn
you’re a boy not a man
when you miss those lovin’ arms
some day
when you’re up there flyin’
and you miss those lovin’ arms
it isn’t so far away
that sweet lullaby
when you miss those lovin’ arms

Enjoy!!! Buy this CD, all the lyrics are included
