These Arms
Dwight Yoakam Lyrics


These arms
That hang here by my side
These arms that ache to open wide
Are useless arms with nothing left to do
Since these arms
Stopped holding you

These arms are worthless now to me
They let you go so how good could they be
Just foolish arms for which I have no need
A pair of arms that grew weak
And set love free

Reaching out to embrace
A vacant memory
Finding just the empty space
Around what's left of me

Two arms that failed completely
Arms both scarred so deeply
Keep paying love's costs with each tragic sway

Trying meekly to assist
My struggle with the truth
Unable to resist
What tears still make us view

Two arms that failed completely
Arms both scarred so deeply
Keep paying love's costs with each tragic sway

These arms
That hang here by my side
These arms that ache to open wide
Useless arms with nothing left to do
Since these arms
Stopped holding you

Since these arms
Stopped holding you

George Jones once asked in his song "Who's Gonna Fill Their Shoe's" well Dwight is the only one to do just that. Not all this new. Country crap that's out there now. Keep on Dwight, just keep on . . .

@Glen Yates me being a rock fan too I say some of the best country artists I’ve heard are Garth, Alan Jackson, Dwight Yoakam, Travis Tritt, Brooks & Dunn, Toby Keith, Kenny Chesney, Zac Brown Band and gonna add a group that’s rock but borders on country! And a newer band! Blackberry Smoke! u guys must check them out they sound so much like Skynyrd
