Track Name: One Hand
The Ballad of One Hand Clapton

Sittin’ alone on a Sunday night
Nothin’ to watch on the TV
Nothin’ but hits on the radio
So I called up my very best friend, Joe
I said, “hey Joe”
He said, “hey”
I said, “what’s doin’ ?”
He said, “nothin’ – what’s doin’ with you?”
I said, “thinkin’ about doin’ somethin’….”
He said, “how ’bout we go down to the roadhouse – I
hear old One Hand’s playin’ all night”
I said, “sounds good” and that’s what we did
Now this is the ballad of One Hand Clapton – that’s right
You see old One Hand – before he was one handed
Fell asleep drunk one night on the railroad tracks
And lost his pickin’ arm as a result
Now when he plays, he just frets the chords
To the most beautiful music you never heard -
The sound of One Hand Clapton
His chords are placed with knowing precision and when he solos
The notes come so fast, his one hand is a blur
Actually, it does make a sound
It’s the soft rhythmic taping of the hard pads of his fingers
Keeping time to the most beautiful music you never heard
we’d just sit there all night –
listening to the sound of One Hand Clapton
