Hands Full Of Blues
by Reggie Miles © 2012 All rights reserved

Got a heart full of heartache, since you said goodbye
Got a life full of troubles, and a worriful mind
I got a pocket full of dreams, and my eyes full of tears
I've had my hands full of blues for years

Got ears full of lies, mirrors full of looks
Got a a voice full of song, a song ful of hooks
Got stories full of rumors, thoughts full of rhymes
‘Bout scratchin’ for a hat full of nickels and dimes

Nights full of tossin’ and turnin’ in bed
Dreams full of nightmares, days full of dread
Got a mind full of mis’ry, my head full of fears
I've had my hands full of blues for years

Got a past full of memories I’d like to forget
I've got a future full of mistakes I ain’t made yet

Got a road full of hazard, a path full of turns
I've got a foot full of lead and a tank full to burn
Got a motor full of muscle, my tranny's full of gears
I've had my hands full of blues for years

Got a pipe full of crack, a bowl full of weed
Got a vein full of smack, a spoon full of speed
A bag full of pills, a needle full of meth
I've got a clip full of bullets, and a barrel full of death

I got a belly full of whiskey to ease the pain
Got a nose full of cocaine drivin’ me insane
Got a bottle full of courage, my fridge full of beers
I've had my hands full of blues for years

I've got a court full of judges, a jury full of peers
I've had my hands full of blues for years

I got lips full of guilt, questions full of whys
I got a sigh full of sorrow, and a tongue full of sighs
I got a soul full of thirst, as last call draws near
I've had my hands full of blues for years
