Crazy Arms

 

Lloyd Price <F> (1956)

Jerry Lewis <G> (1956)

 

Now blue ain't the word for the way that I feel

And the storm's brewing in this heart of mine

This ain't no crazy dream I know that it's real

You're someone else's love now you're not mine

 

Crazy arms that reach to hold somebody new

While my yearning heart keeps saying you're not mine

My troubled mind knows soon to another you'll be wed

And that's why I'm lonely all the time

 

Now take all those precious dreams I had for you & me

And take all the love I thought was mine

Someday those crazy arms may hold somebody new

But honey Iím getting lonely all the time

 

Crazy arms that reach to hold somebody new

While my yearning heart keeps saying you're not mine

My troubled mind knows soon to another you'll be wed

And that's why I'm lonely all the time

 

 

"Crazy Arms" is an American country song recorded by Ray Price. The song, released in May 1956, went on to become a hit that year and a honky-tonk standard. It was Price's first No. 1 hit. The song was written in 1949 by Ralph Mooney and Charles Seals.[1] Mooney, a pedal steel player on many recordings and for Waylon Jennings and Wynn Stewart for over 20 years, said he got the idea for the song after his wife left him because of his drinking problem.[2]
