The Emptiest Arms In The World
Merle Haggard

The Emptiest Arms In The World

I only call when I've had that one too many
And my lonely room goes spinning in a whirl
And tonight I couldn't even find my pillow
I've got the emptiest arms in the world

I no longer wear the gold band on my finger
And from time to time I find myself a girl
But when I realize that she's not you I'm holding
I've got the emptiest arms in the world

My empty arms won't ever hold you close again
And these cheap hotels they're like a
Prison cell that keeps closing in
Cause you alone can fill this lonely feeling
Of the emptiest arms in the world

And you alone can fill this empty feeling
Of the emptiest arms in the world
