Song: "Grandma's Hands"
Album: Decoration Day, Volume 2 (by Mason Jar Music & Friends)
Artist: Josh Garrels

   This song was written in the 1970s by Bill Withers. Mason Jar Music & Friends 
covered it with Josh Garrels in 2013. Josh Garrels may have changed the lyrics of the 
original song to some small extent (mainly dialectal changes). 

Am  Am  Am  Am

Grandma's hands clapped in church on Sunday morning
  Am                             E
Grandma's hands played the tambourine so well
Grandma's hands used to issue out a warning
              E             D
She'd say, “Baby, don't you run so fast
  E               D
Might fall on a piece of glass
  E                   D
Might be snake there in that grass”
  Am              Am
Grandma's hands

Grandma's hands sooth the local unwed mother
  Am                             E
Grandma's hands used to ache sometime and swell
Grandma's hands used to lift her face and tell her
             E             D
She'd say, “Baby, Grandma understands
  E               D
That you really loved that man,
  E               D
But put yourself in Jesus' hands”
  Am             Am
Grandma's Hands

Am Am Am Am E D E D E D Am Am

Grandma's hands used to hand me piece of candy
  Am                               E
Grandma's hands picked me up each time I fell
Grandma's hands, boy, they sure did come in handy
             E                D
She said, “Mattie why'd you whip that boy
 E                  D
What'd you want to spank him for?
 E                D
He dun' drop no apple core”
         E                D             
But I don't have Grandma anymore
      E              D 
If I get to heaven I'll look for
      E              D
If I get to heaven I'll look for
      E              D
If I get to heaven I'll look for
  Am            Am
Grandma's hands

Am    Am    Am     Am
Um, mm, mm (fades)
