Blake Shelton has done his fair share of covers over the years, but his cover of the Conway Twitty classic "Slow Hand" is definitely one of his best.

"Slow Hand" was first released in 1981 and was originally recorded by The Pointer Sisters. Twitty released his version of the song a year later in 1982, making a few minor lyrical changes to the tune to make it easier for a male singer.

Twitty's version of the song stayed at the top of the Billboard Hot Country Singles list for two weeks, and ended up being his last song to hold a #1 spot for several weeks in a row.

Shelton performed his cover of "Slow Hand" during a show at The Blindhorse Saloon in Greenville, SC in 2013. He keeps the cover simple, strumming along on an acoustic guitar as he sings. 

You could argue that this cover of "Slow Hand" isn't solely Shelton's. The audience really gets involved in his performance, singing along with Shelton during the chorus. 

We couldn't help but sing along as well! How about you? What do you think of Shelton's simple "Slow Hand" cover? 

LYRICS BELOW

As the midnight moon was driftin' through
The lazy sway of the trees
I saw the look in your eyes, looking into the night
Not seeing what you wanted to see

Darlin', don't say a word, I've already heard
What your body's sayin' to mine, You're tired of fast moves
You've got a slow groove on your mind

You want a man with a slow hand
You want a lover with an easy touch
You want somebody who will spend some time
Not come and go in a heated rush baby, believe me I understand
When it comes to love, you want a slow hand

On shadowed ground, with no one around
And a blanket of stars in our eyes
Hey, we're drifting free, like two lost leaves
On the crazy wind of the night

Darlin', don't say a word, I've already heard
What your body's sayin' to mine, If you want all night
You know it's alright I've got time

You've got a man with a slow hand
You've got a lover with an easy touch
You've got somebody who will spend some time
Not come and go in a heated rush baby, believe me I understand
When it comes to love, you want a slow hand

You've got a lover with an easy touch
You've got somebody who will spend some time baby
Not come and go in a heated rush baby, believe me I understand
