Lyrics

My Grandma's Arms

INTRO G C D G

VERSE 1 G C D G
Having lunch again on a Sunday afternoon,
We’re having fried chicken and baked potatoes soon.
After lunch I’ll go fishin’ in the pond behind the barn,
At the end of the day, I’ll be asleep in Grandma’s arms.

VERSE 2 G C D G
At 5am I’ll feed those damn stray cats,
Hunt for eggs again, from hens that don’t lay yet. (Harp)
Chase newts from the rocks underneath the trees,
Pick some Morning Glories, steal their honey from the bees. (Harp)

CHORUS C G D G
All these memories,
I was told to forget.
I didn’t listen,
I ran away instead.
But I miss fishin’
In that pond behind the barn,
And I am wishin’
For the safety of my Grandma’s arms.

C G D G 2x

VERSE 2 G C D G
How she loved me, and she loved to hear me sing,
The proud way I felt, she gave me Gram’s sapphire ring.
Decorating Christmas trees, each year on Black Friday.
From the gold teapot on down, it had to be her way.

VERSE 3 G C D G
Staying up late again, watching movies in the dark.
Grandma gave me her video card, she had a VCR.
Listening to the Steelers lose, or try to steel a win,
Asking her ’bout eight track tapes, John Wayne, and Errol Flynn.

CHORUS REPEAT C G D G

DOBRO LEAD 4x

VERSE 4 G C D G
Grandma’s buried in a grave above the town,
The wind is cold there, and so is the ground.
When she laid there dying, she gave me this advice,
Make your own path, girl, and pay your own price.

CHORUS REPEAT C G D G 2x
And I am wishin’
For the safety of my Grandma’s arms. G
