LYRICS

My Hands
My Hands

I am the Man, Thomas
I am the Man
Look at these nail scars
I carry in my hands

I am the Man, Thomas
I am the Man
Look at these nail scars
I carry in my hands

They drove me up the hill, Thomas
I am the Man
They made me carry the cross, Thomas
I am the Man

I am the Man, Thomas
I am the Man
Look at these nail scars
I carry in my hands

They crowned my head with thorns, Thomas
I am the Man
They nailed me to the cross, Thomas
I am the Man
I am the Man, Thomas
I am the Man
Look at these nail scars
I carry in my hands

They pierced me in the side, Thomas
I am the Man
I died on the cross, Thomas
I am the Man
I am the Man, Thomas
I am the Man
Look at these nails scars
I carry in my hands

They buried me in the tomb, Thomas
I am the Man
In three days I rose, Thomas
I am the Man
I am the Man, Thomas
I am the Man
Look at these nails scars
I carry in my hands

I am the Man
I am the Man, Thomas
I am the Man
Look at these nails scars
I carry in my hands

The latest single shared by California-based Americana trio The Devil Makes Three is a cover of Bluegrass legend Ralph Stanley’s “I Am The Man, Thomas” — a rollicking bluegrass gospel tune with the graphic description of Jesus’ crucifixion and resurrection adapted from the Bible chapter John 20:24-29.

Taken from their forthcoming studio LP, Redemption & Ruin, The Devil Makes Three’s rendition of “I Am The Man, Thomas” has a heavy edge with a crisp, modern sound. Sharing the album with covers of Blues classics like Robert Johnson’s “Drunken Hearted Man” and Muddy Waters’s “Champagne And Reefer,” “I Am The Man, Thomas” is an unexpected but fitting addition to a dark collection of American songs.

Redemption & Ruin is scheduled for release on September 16, 2016. Pick it up on Amazon.
