Wet Hands

These wet hands of mine

let me down most every time

watched them as the world slipped through

watching now as they’re losing you


Now they’re fucking this thing up

Think I’m out of luck

why don’t you come up here and teach me how to play guitar

and if you stick around

I’ll buy us a couple rounds

and I’ll teach you how to play with people’s hearts


Now guitar chords and strings

and other little things

are easy enough for me to learn

and though my fingers may be slow

they still know where to go

to play songs for you that have not been learned
