Dug another one out to work up.

Grandma Told Me

The older I get
The more it seems
I’m spending more time
chasin' memories
The stories I’d hear
All the time I was raised
Bout hard times passed
Times of better days


Grandma told me
Rain was the angels cryin
She always said that thunder was the sound
Of the devil beatin his wife
Grandma told me
Bout the flood in ‘37
And all a little boy really needed to know
She spoke a lot about heaven


I got an old guitar
She built in ‘31
A kit she found in a catalogue
she forgot which one
But that’s ok you see
she recalled a lot of things
Oh how I loved to listen to her share those memories

(repeat chorus)


I got an old radio
Grandma tuned to the old opry
She loved when they sang those old time songs
By the carter family
I remember her sweet smile
Like it was yesterday
She’d always look forward to Friday nights
When mama dropped me off to stay

(Repeat chorus)

I got an old ring
No one wears no more
passed down through the family
Since round the civil war
When mama gave it to me
Just before she passed away
Said son there's gonna come a time
You’re gonna have to do the same

The older I get
The more it seems
I’m spending more time
Chasin memories
