My Hands Are Tied Revisited

Here’s a classic country song for you using our latest Idiom of the Week.

“My Hands Are Tied”
Merle Haggard

She came here to see me today

In prison where I have to stay

But this time she came here

To tell me goodbye

 

Pretending that I understood

I held back the tears best I could

But I know that she knew

I wanted to cry

 

Because my hands are tied

I’m locked here inside

I want her, I need her, I love her

But my hands are tied

 

Her visits kept my world alive

Our love found a way to survive

But now it’s all over

I’ve lost her for good

 

She waited with arms open wide

Till somebody else stepped inside

But I know she waited

As long as she could

 

Because my hands are tied

I’m locked here inside

I want her, I need her, I love her

But my hands are tied
