Gentle Arms of Eden – Dave Carter and Tracy Grammer

Gentle Arms of Eden – Dave Carter and Tracy Grammer

In the past year or so I've spent some real time actually learning covers in an attempt to broaden my musical horizons.  One of the first, and most helpful, people I turned to with this task was my older sister Mairead.  Unlike me, she listens to specific songs instead of whole CDs so she could tell me exactly which song by which artist I should learn. Gentle Arms of Eden was one of the first songs so told me to learn so I've recorded it for her birthday this year.  Happy birthday Mairead!     LYRICS & CHORDS: Intro: (D)(C)(G) . . (D)(C)(G) . . .
