[Verse 1]
A                            E7
Now many many years ago when I was twenty three
I was married to a widow who was pretty as could be
                A7                Bm
This widow had a grown-up daughter had hair of red
  B7                               E7
My father fell in love with her and soon the two were wed

    A                             E7
This made my dad my son-in-law and changed my very life
My daughter was my mother cause she was my father's wife
                 A7           Bm
To complicate the matters even though it brought me joy
 B7                          E7
I soon became the father of a bouncing baby boy

  A                         E7
My little baby then became a brother-in-law to dad
And so became my uncle though it made me very sad
                A7         Bm
For if he was my uncle that also made him the brother
  B7                                E7
Of the widow's grown-up daughter who of course was my step-mother

A      E7       A   D      Bm       D
I'm my own grandpa  I'm my own grandpa
         D       A          C#m        F#m
It sounds funny I know but it really is so
A      E7       A
I'm my own grandpa

[Verse 2]        
My father's wife then had a son that kept them on the run
And he became my grandchild for he was my daughter's son
                 A7              Bm
My wife is now my mother's mother and it makes me blue
B7                              E7
Because she is my wife she's my grandmother too

repeat #4

[Verse 3]
   A                            E7
Now if my wife is my grandmother then I am her grandchild
And every time I think of it  it nearly drives me wild
              A7                   Bm
For now I have become the strangest case you ever saw
      B7                          E7
As the husband of my grandmother I am my own grandpa

repeat #4 x2
