Song Description

"... but if you work a little harder, someone will give a hand."

Story Behind the Song

The chord progrssion is inspired by Paul McCartney and Steely Dan and the lyric is about doing what you can and the help that it often atracks.

Lyrics

GIVE A HAND
I can hear my mother say:

It's in your hands your heart
you have the power to make it
If you want it, don't fight
but if you work a little harder
SOMEONE WILL GIVE A HAND
THE SKY WILL HAVE AN EYE
BUT YOU'LL HAVE TO FACE YOUR TROUBLES ALONE
TIL THE DAY YOU DIE

You'll have to try and try
there's always someone there to help you
Life will send you a friend
and if you do what you can
SOMEONE WILL GIVE A HAND
THE SKY WILL HAVE AN EYE
BUT YOU'LL HAVE TO FACE YOUR TROUBLES ALONE
TIL THE DAY YOU DIE

You might believe you are lucky,
you might believe that it's logical faith
You might believe that someone gives a hand
You might believe that you understand
People might say my mother helped all the way,
but her words are still alive today
