Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Loving Arms (from Livingston Taylor)
Right you are, GUEST. There are several songs called LOVING ARMS (or LOVIN' ARMS). The one written by Tom Jans is the best known. It was first recorded by Dobie Gray. A whole slew of others have recorded it: Anne Murray, The Dixie Chicks, Elvis Presley, Etta James, Kelly Wilde, Kenny Rogers, Kris Kristofferson, Livingston Taylor, Millie Jackson, Natalie Cole, Olivia Newton-John, Petula Clark, Rita Coolidge, Tom T. Hall, and many others.
Cindy Walker also wrote a country song called LOVING ARMS which was recorded by Hank Locklin.
Lightnin' Hopkins also wrote a blues song called LOVIN' ARMS.
There are lots more.
