If I only had one arm to hold you
Better yet if I had none at all
Then I wouldn't have two arms that ache for you
And I'd have one less memory to recall

If I only had one ear to listen
To the lies that you told to me
Then I would more closely resemble
The half a man that you've made of me

And if I only had one leg to stand on
Then how much, how much truer picture you'd see
And then I would more closely resemble
The half a man that you've made of me
Yeah, then I would more closely resemble
The half a man that you've made of me

Songwriters
NELSON, WILLIE
