lyrics

John Cameron / Maia Sharp

1 o’clock in the morning
Darker than the dark side of the moon
I didn’t know where we were going
We couldn’t get there too soon
On the tip of the spear, the guardians of the night
Oh but we couldn’t see it coming, a ghost round in flight

Had no idea that bones exploded
Or skin could act that way
That a boat could take on blood like water
And wash my soul away
Oh hanging off my shoulder
Was something I did not recognize
The corpsmen stormin the ship were shielding their eyes

It’s okay, it’s just my strumming hand
The other one does all the work
If I couldn’t play No Alibis or Ramblin Man
Now that, yeah that would hurt
It was a bad day but it’s okay

They sewed me back together
But it’ll never be the same
Still, I don’t waste a moment
On thinking who should take the blame
I had Panama and Paris
And Carolina on my side
At least a dozen doctors tried, I know they tried

It’s okay, it’s just my strumming hand
The other one does all the work
If I couldn’t play Cashmere or Preacher Man
Now that, yeah that would hurt
It was a bad day but it’s okay
It’s just my strumming hand

it’s just my strumming hand

It’s okay, it’s just my strumming hand
The other one does all the work
If I couldn’t play Stand By Your Man
Now that, yeah that would hurt
It was a bad day, but it’s okay
It’s just my strumming hand

Yeah it’s just my strumming hand
