Atkins, Rodney - Angel's Hands Lyrics




She said I've been up all night and half-scared to death
I can smell the liquor on your breath
I payed for your rehab with my ira
Boy your daddy'd be turning in his grave
She said son I've done all mama can do
I can save myself but I can't save you

He said I wished you and Jesus would get off my back
They said his truck was doing 90 when he crashed
I bet it gets so quiet in heaven sometimes
Even god cries when an angels hands are tied

They said honey grown-ups do this all the time
And tears welled up in their little girls eyes
They said now it's not something that you've done
It just that mommy and daddy don't get along

She said do you guys mean that you need a time out
And that daddy's gonna move to a different house
They said you'll have two bedrooms you're a lucky kid
She said what about checkers, where's he gonna live
I bet it gets so quiet in heaven sometimes
Even god cries when an angels hands are tied

She prays, angels watch me through the night
Stay by my side 'til morning light
God bless mama, god bless daddy
Keep us together and happy
I bet it gets so quiet in heaven sometimes
Even god cries when an angels hands are tied

    all the wrong lyrics and typos killed it.

  17. Buddy William KKurtiss LOGDEN ogden jr

    This song has not been commented on because people thrive on the " filth " these so called country people sing today !

    Summer Wilkins

    It's not inherently "filth." Stupid and lacks substance? Undeniably. But people really need to quit with this idea that sex is "dirty." It's not.

  18. TheLastCowboy Faue

    They said my truck was doing 90 when i crashed too.  Lucky to be here at all.

  19. majorl311

    It has been 4 years since anyone commented on this?

  20. MrsNiky5

  25. theabster0

    God is AWESOME and he LOVES YOU! God cares about the slightest things in life, and will guide you and help you through it ;)

  29. Katsi'tsenhawi Diabo

    It's Not Something That You've Done, It's Just That Mommy & Daddy Dont Get Along!!

  30. Lane Ray

    i use to worry my grandma to death when i would go out drinking wish i could take it back now but she has passed on and i regret it so much

  31. Deon Frost

  32. Cody Cash

    even then the true meaning of this heartfelt song is hidden

  33. Player Four

    i cried during this song because the lyrics touched me especially when it says i bet it gets so quiet in heaven sometimes even God crys

  34. Staci Blackwood

    @thisara8 I really dont think god cares about such petty things. He's much bigger than that. eh

    Kendra Knicely

    Staci Blackwood but no, he cares about everything! 💖💖

  35. Tamara Gruenewald

    God should have been capitalized at 1:07.

  36. Jenny Neumann

    This song kills me. My husband asked for a divorce a month ago and my son just says it means daddy lives in a different house and we don't love each other anymore...

  37. eeveelover1824

  44. kasey mastin

    Powerful Song :')

  45. Fall Back

    I became a savior to some kids I'll never meet
    Sent a check in the mail to buy them something to eat
    What will you do to make a difference, to make a change?

    What will you do to help someone along the way?
    Just a touch, a smile as you turn the other cheek
    Pray for your enemies, humble yourself, love's staring back at me
    In the midst of the most painful faces
    Angels show up in the strangest of places

  46. Fall Back

    I became a savior to some kids I'll never meet
    Sent a check in the mail to buy them something to eat
    What will you do to make a difference, to make a change?

    What will you do to help someone along the way?
    Just a touch, a smile as you turn the other cheek
    Pray for your enemies, humble yourself, love's staring back at me
    In the midst of the most painful faces
    Angels show up in the strangest of places

  47. Val Erickson

    @britt2uk I was about 5/6 when my mom left my dad, and I still remeber the day she left, I thought she was coming back so I was probly way younger then you are

  48. Val Erickson

    @britt2uk its alot worse when your younger, and don't really know whats going on

  49. Val Erickson

    This song, the part bout the lil girl and her parents, reminds me of the when my parents got divorced cus it was the descuson that I never got, even the part bout the dog although my dogs name was salty and my mom was the one to move

  50. Shayden Weber

    ppl really need to listen to this and understand its not Gods fault for everything yes he cries for the awful choices we make down here but we have Free Will...so His hands are tied but it will all be different in Heaven so at least some of us have that to look forward too! Hope to see you there! ;o)

  51. Doreen Robinson Burkey

    Don't particularly care for the song. Always felt Rodney Atkins had a "forced" country twang to his voice - not natural at all. Also, whoever did the typing for the lyrics needs to listen better AND use spell check!

  52. Melissa Pearn

    *two beds

  53. WhitneyyMariee

    @KwikTripy thats nice loll :)

  54. Monica Guerra

    @wwefan30000000000000 Lmao

  55. Kendra Essman

  57. Jordan Lantz

  58. nofacesniper

    hey its Jesus not jesus

  59. princess9855

    By the way, in the chorus, it's When Angel's hands are Tied, not tired haha just thought I'd let you know :)

  60. enjoimann

    @4sTaRs8 I am so sorry for all of the struggles you've had to go through in your life. Hopefully things will get better for you in the future.

  61. Devin Riddle

    @thereoncewasababy its kind of complicated you see god gives everyone a choice: heaven or hell some peeps don't want any part of god so he lets them live how they live so there hands r tied to hell so they go to hell

  62. Kalie Pead

    @thereoncewasababy adding onto that comment about what it's about, when he says "even God cries when an angels hands are tied." well he's saying that in the situations, the mom is the angel, because she tried to save her son, but couldn't, yet she was absolutely helpless. same with the little girl, who is pure and innocent, and in all essence an angel, yet she's helpless when it comes to her parents, and she can't do anything.

  63. enjoimann

    I bought my dad the album If you're going through hell. It had this song on it. And he recently had just broke up with his wife(my stepmom) that he had married for 7 years. While I wa listening to this in the car with him while we were driving I started crying. I was crying over my mom and dad not being together(they divorced when I was 3.) He thought I was crying over him and my stepmom. He was talking about him and my stepmom saying it was good that they divorced. He'll never understand..

  64. snowfelt

    the first part about his truck going 90 when he crashed - makes me want to cry :^(.

  65. Emily Anthony

    babby you suck mine

  66. Emily Anthony

    grow up you babby

  67. Emily Anthony

    I don't like this song.... You all suck dick :P

  68. Jamie Kehoe

    i like the part about checkers were is he gonna live

  69. j Gacanich

    this song makes me cry:(

  70. Kristina Kester

    It's RODNEY not Rodeny Atkins. And angles hands are TIED not tired. I love the song but you really need to study english before you put up the lyrics.

  72. Kyle Miller
