Hand Me Down

After If, here is the next song in the Keedy Dinner series. Justin performed Hand Me Down on his Ovation 12-string Guitar. I think this is one of the songs he does best. Enjoy!!

Someday they’ll find our small town world
On a big town avenue
Gonna make you like the way they talk
When they’re talking to you
Gonna make you break out of your shell
Cuz they tell you to
Gonna make you like the way they lie
Better than the truth
They’ll tell you everything
You wanted someone else say
They’re gonna break your heart


From what I’ve seen
You’re just one more hand me down
But no one’s tried to give you what you need
Lay all your troubles down I am with you now


Somebody oughta take you in
Try make you love again
Try to make you like the way they feel
When they’re under your skin
Never once do you think that they would lie
When they’re holding you
Then you wonder why I haven’t called
When I said I’d call you
You’ll start to wonder
If you’re ever gonna make it by
You’ll start to think
You were born blind


I’m here for the hard times
The straight to your heart times
When living ain’t easy
You can stand up against me
Whatever may fall on you
Cry on me


Someday they’ll open up your world
Shake you down to the very core
Do their best to change you
Their still can erase you.

    The problem may be so. Please know the view below, you may fell better.


    Life is a happy journey
    There is nothing so thorny
    When your heart is light
    And your mind is right.

    Never doubt with a pout the love,
    Which you ought to worship with awe.
    So, love, love and love
    Your Lord and your lady
    And nothing will be bitter
    Instead everything will be sweeter.

    Life may have many changes,
    Blend with others if there be chances
    A lot you need to know in this world.
    Sorrows there be in everyone’s life,
    Yet never lose your precious heart
    That is how life has to be lived.

    Life’s destiny is the inevitable death
    Time keeps all in suspended animation.
    But all dreams come to an end
    However sweet they may be…
    Therefore you wish for your activities end,
    A peaceful sleep may come at last one day.
