INTRO:  G C Em D  G C Em D  G C Em D

VERSE 1:
    B                   C
The boy only wanted to give Mother something
    G                      D
And all of her roses had bloomed.
B                     C
Looking at her as he came rushing in with them
G                        D
Knowing her roses were doomed,
Am            B               Em
All she could see were some thorns buried deep
    Am              B            Em         D
And tears that were cried as she tended his wounds

CHORUS:
        G           C    Em  D
And she knew it was love       
       G             C          Em  D
It was one she could understand  
       G           C
He was showing his love,
    Em            D         G  C  Em  D
And that's how he hurt his hands.        

VERSE 2:
B                        C
He still remembers that night as child
G               D
On his mother's knee
B                            C
She held him close and she opened her bible
    G                   D
And quietly started to read,
    Am       B          Em
And seeing a picture of Jesus he cried out,
Am           B        Em              D
"Momma, he's got some scars just like me."

CHORUS:
       G           C    Em  D
And he knew it was love       
       G            C          Em  D
It was one he could understand  
       G           C
He was showing his love,
    Em            D         G   C  Em  D
And that's how he hurt his hands.        

VERSE 3:
B                              C
Now the boy's grown and moved out on his own
 G                     D
When Uncle Sam comes along.
  B                         C
A foreign affair, but our young men were there
    G                     D
And luck had his number drawn.
   Am          B              Em
It wasn't that long till our hero was gone
   Am        B                Em             D
He gave to a friend what he learned from the cross.

CHORUS:
         G           C    Em  D
And they knew it was love       
       G              C          Em  D
It was one they could understand  
       G           C
He was showing his love,
    Em             D         G   C  Em  D
And that's how he hurt his hands.
