Angry Words

This song is by Stonewall Jackson and appears on the Live album Recorded Live at the Grand Ole Opry (1971).

It hurts down deep when angry words are spoken
Because of this countless tears are shed
Much too often tender hearts are broken
When hasty thoughtless angry words are said

As you know I stormed out of the house again this mornin'
I slammed the door and didn't even take your usual kiss
Well, angry words can make us do things without a warnin'
I could hardly wait to get back home to tell you this

First of all you're the reason for my living
You've stuck with me when things were at their worst
We've got the home, the kids and the joy they're giving
But over all you always will come first

We found out long ago that life's no paradise
We're not angels or else we'd all have wings
Above all angry words I hope you realize
That I love you if that means anything
