Aliotta Haynes Jeremiah – For Eddy lyrics

[Verse 1]
He'd been dealt a bad hand nearly fifty years old
Cleanin' glasses, at night in a bar
Only one good hand for to play him his tunes
On a piano all tired out and marred

[Chorus]
And the stone angel hung on the wall up above
Looked out blind, all the nights long.
But when the one-armed man played to an empty saloon,
She looked down and smiled as he played her his songs.

[Verse 2]
Duke, the white Shepherd who guarded the room
Never leavin' the back of the bar
Would climb up on the stage and curl up around his feet
As to guard him and his music from harm.

[Chorus]
And the stone angel hung on the wall up above
Looked out blind, all the nights long.
But when the one-armed man played to an empty saloon,
She looked down and smiled as he played her his songs.

[Verse 3]
I heard him one night,when he thought to be alone.
And I lied and I did him a wrong.
I can't give back the pleasure his music gave to me,
I can only give him this song.

[Verse 4]
He played better with one hand than most men with two.
Yet made posters for all of the stars.
And I wish to my heart he could play for you,
So you'd know just how happy you are.

[Final Chorus]
And the stone angel hung on the wall up above
And me and the big white dog.
All stopped once to listen,to the one-armed man play
To their smiles in an empty saloon.
