Melanie - Lay Your Hands Across The Six Strings Lyrics




Lay my hands across the six strings
Trying to play the feelings
Gonna try to lay it down
Gonna try to lay it down
Put your hand upon my shoulder
I'm crying because it's over
And I know that I let you down

I got a funny feeling
When we saw the road sign
'Cause after all it's your stay
It isn't mine
Well, you know I closed up my gate, baby
But somehow you got through
I learned a whole lot about me today
When I thought about you

Gonna lay my hands across the six strings
Wonder why my feelings
Have come to let me down
They come to let me down
Put your hand upon my shoulder
I'm crying because it's over
And I know that I let you down

I'm closer that ever
To being on my own
Closer to heaven
And I'm farther from home
And I'm thinking sixty miles an hour, yeah
In a thirty mile zone

Wanna lay my hands across the six strings
I'm trying to play the feelings
Gonna try to lay it down
Oh, put your hand upon my shoulder
I'm crying because it's over
And I know that I let you down

Not 'til my second cup of coffee
Do I realise it's all done, da da
And I put the long picture
Inside a short song
Now with all the rings around my fingers, yeah
And I still feel alone

Wanna lay my hands across the six strings
I'm trying to play the feelings
Wanna try to lay it down
I'm gonna try
Please, put your hand upon my shoulder
I'm crying because it's over
And I know that I let you down
Please, put your hand upon my shoulder
I'm crying because it's over
And I know that I let you down
I know that I let you down

Melanie Lay Your Hands Across The Six Strings Comments

    Probably my all time fave. I bought this album in 1974’ and is one of only about half a dozen LPs that I’ve retained through all my travels of 60+ years. I’m a singer and I’ve often performed this one at social gatherings, giving a taste of Melanie ( beyond Brand New Key) to a wide audience - always with a lecture about Melanie’s amazing body of work. Hope I’ve helped open some minds and facilitate some record sales for her along the way.

    Showcasing the force she can have in her voice. Love this.
