Subject: SONGS ABOUT HANDS!
From: *#1 PEASANT*
Date: 07 Feb 02 - 08:50 PM

Greetings!

You see I have this artcar.... the Epicentral Shrine of the Helping Hand Vehicular Other wise known as handy or handie.

I have two speakers on the roof. Out of them comes music about hands. Now....there are lots of songs which have the word hand in them but I am interested in songs in which hands are central.... Grandmas hands, I want to hold your hand..... I have put together a list on the web page along with midis for lots of them. You can visit the pages here: Click to go to Handy and see what songs I already have

Let me know if you know of any which should be included. The car also talks....amazing people reciting sayings about hands. Drive art and live and thanks in advance for any songs found.

Conrad Bladey Peasant and visionary artist Never underestimate the power of the helping hand.

From: ddw

#1 —— I couldn't get too far into the site to see what's there and what isn't, but thought you might look up this song:

DADDY'S HANDS
by Holly Dunn

I remember daddy's hands folded silently in prayer
And reachin' out to hold me, when I had a nightmare
You could read quite a story in the callous' and lines
Years of work and worry had left their mark behind

I remember daddy's hands how they held my mama tight
And patted my back for something done right
There are things that I'd forgotten that I loved about the man
But I'll always remember the love in daddy's hands

CHORUS
Daddy's hands were soft and kind when I was cryin'
Daddy's hands were hard as steel when I'd done wrong
Daddy's hands weren't always gentle but I've come to understand
There was always love in daddy's hands.

I remember daddy's hands workin' till they bled
Sacrifised unselfishly just to keep us all fed
If I could do things over, I'd live my life again
And never take for granted the love in daddy's hands

Repeat CHORUS

Repeat CHORUS & TAG

cheers,

david

From the Broadway musical of the 50's "Kismet", putting words to the tunes of Borodin no less, a blend of Arabian nights and glitz, comes the song "Gesticulate"

"Dear hand, deft hand, spinner of fable and fantasy, fond companion to me since my birth Swift hand, kind hand, would they rend us apart, Leaving no finger or fist there, But just the hint of a wrist there?"

and so on...

I believe Alfred Drake was in the musical, and there was a movie.

From: Janie
Date: 08 Feb 02 - 10:38 AM

What about "My Two Hands Hold the Earth"? It is sung as a round.

My head is in the sky, sky, sky.
My feet are on the ground, ground, ground.
And what about my blood?
Well it's like the sea.
And what about my bones?
Like the mountains be.
And my hands, oh my hands
I believe with my hands I can hold this land.
My two hands hold the earth.
My two hands hold the earth.

When my father bought a "Hi Fi" in the beginning of the 60's, he was notorius for talking the salesmen at record stores into giving him the copies of albumns not for sale. One was of Clint Walker, the cowboy actor who was "SugarFoot" and many other roles. What a beautiful bass voice he had--I can still hear it! My favorite song on that albumn was "With These Hands." Dont't know if I can remember, but I can remember parts of it:

With these hands, I will bring to you
A love that's warmer than the day,
And with these hands, I'll provide for you
Should you see a stormy sea, I'll turn the tide for you,
And I'll never, no I'll never let you go.

Any catters know the rest of the lyrics?

Chuck Suchy has a song called "Summer Hands" about the hands of a farmer. It appears on his album Dakota Breezes. I could only find this quote:

...with the work that it brings
When the wheat-grass greens and meadowlark sings
Summer hands.

Summer hands start out tender and thin
Not much different from their city friends
They toughen as they're used time and again
Summer hands.

Summer hands hold the newborn child,
Cool mother's brow, reassure her a while...

YOU DON'T KNOW ME
Ray Charles
(C. Walker/E. Arnold), Unichappell Music, BMI

You give your hand to me
And then you say hello
I can hardly speak
My heart is beating so
And anyone can tell
You think you know me well
But you don't know me

Oh you don't know the one
That thinks of you at night
Who longs to kiss your lips
And yearns to squeeze you tight
Oh no I'm just a friend
That's all I've ever been
You just don't know me

I never knew the art of making love
Though my heart aches with love for you
Afraid and shy, I let my chance go by
The chance that you might love me too

You give your hand to me
And then you say goodbye
I watch you walk away
Beside the lucky guy
You'll never, never know
The one who loves you so
You just don't know me

Subject: Lyr Add: TWO HANDS (Jan Marra)
From: bbc
Date: 11 Feb 02 - 05:47 PM

I'm very fond of a song by Jan Mara called "Two Hands."

Two Hands

There's a quality taken for granted.
No one seems to talk about it much,
But babies are known to wither and die
For the want of a loving touch.
Children are blessedly simple.
They cry to be hugged and to be held,
But once we are grown, we're told to stand alone,
Told to keep our hands to ourselves.

Sometimes words will fail you.
You have more than words at your command.
You carry the power to love and to heal
Right there, in your own two hands.

So often, the touch of another
Raises doubt and suspicion in our heads.
Oh, it must be some kind of come-on;
It's a trick to try and get us into bed.
But I just need someone to hold me.
Why is it so hard to say?
So we fight, fool around, and lay our bodies down
And the need never seems to go away.

Sometimes words will fail you.
You have more than words at your command.
You carry the power to love and to heal
Right there, in your own two hands.

So eagerly we break the bonds of family,
Independent, self-sufficient, all alone.
And now the words "Reach out and touch someone"
Make you think of the long distance phone.

(Sing chorus twice & end w/
Right there, in your own two hands.

best,

bbc

How about Billy Joel's "Captain Jack"?


Saturday night and you're still hangin' around
You're tired of livin' in your one horse town
You'd like to find a little hole in the ground
For a while, hmm

So you go to the village in your tie-dye jeans
And you stare at the junkies and the closet queens
It's like some pornograhic magazine
And you smile, hmm

{Refrain}
But Captain Jack will get you high tonight
And take you to your special island
Captain Jack will get you by tonight
Just a little push 'n' you'll be smilin'

Oh yeah, yeah

You sister's gone out, she's on a date
And you just sit at home and masturbate
Your phone is gonna ring soon, but you just can't wait
For that call, hmm

So you stand on the corner in your new English clothes
And you look so polished from your hair down to your toes
Oh, but still your finger's gonna pick your nose
After all, hmm

{Refrain}

Oh yeah, yeah

So you decide to take a holiday
You got your tape deck and your brand new Chevrolet
Ah, there ain't no place to go anyway
And what for, hmm

So you've got everything, oh but nothin's cool
They just found your father in the swimming pool
And you guess you won't be going back to school
Anymore

{Refrain}

La da da, Oh yeah, yeah

So you play your albums and you smoke your pot
And you meet your girlfriend in the parking lot
Oh, but still you're aching for the things you haven't got
What went wrong, hmm

And if you can't understand why your world is so dead
And why you've got to keep in style and feed your head
Well, you're twenty-one and still your mother makes your bed
And that's too long, oh, oh oh yeah yeah!

A pretty song by Salvatore Adamo: Mes Mains Sur Tes Hanches

Sois pas fachée si je te chante les souvenirs de mes 15 ans
Ne boude pas si tu es absente de mes reveries d'adolescent
Ces amourettes insignifiantes ont preparé un grand amour
Et c'est pourquoi je te les chante et les presente tour à tour

Mais laisse mes mains sur tes hanches
Ne fais pas ses yeux furibonds
Oui tu l'auras ta revanche tu seras ma dernière chanson

Dans chaque fille que j'ai connue c'est un peu toi que je cherchais
Quand dans mes bras je t' ai tenue moi je tremblais je comprenais
Que tu est sortie d'une fable pour venir habiter mon rêve
Et ce serait bien regrettable que notre amour ainsi s'achève
Oui se serai bien regrettable que notre amour ainsi s'achève

Mais laisse mes mains sur tes hanches
Ne fais pas ses yeux furibonds
Oui tu l'auras ta revanche tu seras ma dernière chanson

SO MUCH IN LOVE
by The Tymes

As we stroll along together
Holding hands, walking all alone
So in love are we two
That we don't know what to do
So in love (doo, so in love)
In a world of our own (doo, so in love)

As we stroll by the sea together
Under stars twinkling high above
So in love are we two
No one else but me and you
So in love (doo, so in love)
So much in love (doo, so in love)
So in love (doo, so in love)
So much in love (doo, so in love)

We stroll along together
I tell you I need you oh so much
I love, love you my darling
Can you tell it in my touch?

When we walk down the aisle together
We will vow to be together till we die
So much love have we two
Just can't wait to say "I do"
So in love (doo, so in love)
Are you and I (doo, you and I)
So in love (doo, so in love)
Are you and I (doo, you and I)

THESE HANDS
(Kevin Wilson/Walter Fixsen)

As I twist the cap off this bottle,
The words my mama said to me
Ring back through a haze of tender memories
To the days when I sat upon her knee.

She'd fold her hands over mine as we prayed.
We'd count our blessings every day.
And I remember promising to make my mama proud.
She'd shake her head and smile. Lord, it seems like yesterday.

CHO: She said, “Son, these hands will make your living.
Son, these hands will make your love.
These hands will keep your promises when you become a man.
You'll be known by the proof in these hands.”

As I sift through the wreckage that's left of my life,
I've made so many mistakes.
And it feels like a hurricane has blown away my mind
And left this heart in pieces and these hands with the shakes. CHO.

(Repeat first verse)
