Lyrics

These two hands have built bridges, provided & raised children, folded in prayer each dinner time; these two hands.
These two hands fix the broken, kept home & old cars goin, wiped the tears & held to tight sometimes; these two hands.
These two hands were forged in labor, clenched to tight fists in anger, & busted the lips of big talkin men.
These two hands have been afflicted, suffered in addiction, & in a little church were washed clean of sin. These two hands.
(CHORUS)
As a boy I imagined these hands sword fighting dragons or on a Marine wrapped in soldiers gloves.
I felt 'em hug my mother, slammin cold one's with my brother, watched 'em tremble when dad went home to God.
After all these years it's becoming clear lookin back on who I am.
It's easy to understand how it only took two hands; to build a man.

These two hands know the shame & the lowest of my low; restin on the trigger of a gun held to my head.
These two hands saved a life shootin those rounds into the sky; when I gave up on givin up instead. These two hands
These two hands love a wife who knows each storied calloused line; that changed the boy she knew to the husband that she holds.
These two hands give her comfort from her care worn hurt in ways she's only allowed to know; these two hands.
(Chorus)
As a boy I imagined these hands sword fighting dragons or on a Marine wrapped in soldiers gloves.
I felt 'em hug my mother, slammin cold one's with my brother, watched 'em tremble when dad went home to God.
After all these years it's becoming clear lookin back on who I am.
It's easy to understand how it only took two hands; to build a man.
