A
I stopped by my daughter’s house
A                                         A        A
You know, I just want to use the phone
D
I stopped by my daughter’s house
D                                         A        A
You know, I just want to use the phone
E
You know, my new grand baby came to the door
D                                                          A        A
And said, “Grand daddy, you know, ain’t no-one at home”

I said, “Now, look out!”

A
You’re damn right I got the blues

From my head down to my shoes
