Justin Moore – Grandpa lyrics

You stood on that bank when I got baptized
Gave me a thirty thirty when I turned nine
At sixteen you caught me drinking out in the barn
I could hear you cheering when we won state
And you held my hand at Grandma's grave
And I'll always be thankful you never sold the farm

Chorus:
Grandpa you stood so tall
Chewed that Red Man, wore overalls
You were the same man on Sunday morning as Saturday night
Five foot six to the top of your hat
But when you talked bout the war thought you were Superman
American born simple man with a southern drawl
You walk the walk, you talk the talke, Grandpa

You still swear Roosevelt was the best
That a home grown tomato tastes better than the rest
And fifty years goes too fast with a woman you love
Well this life I've chose is gettin' busy now
And when I walk up on your front porch
It's just like I'm still young

Chorus:
Grandpa you stood so tall
Chewed that Red Man, wore overalls
You were the same man on Sunday morning as Saturday night
Five foot six to the top of your hat
But when you talked bout the war thought you were Superman
American born simple man with a southern drawl
You walk the walk, you talk the talke, Grandpa

Yeah American born a dirt road man with that slow southern drawl
Now keep walkin' the walk and talkin' the talk Grandpa

    This song is so amazing. My papaw passed away in june of 2011 an he literally has always been a hero to me. I love him more than he could possibly know and am so thankful for the love I always found in his arms. I was so blessed to be able to see my papaw nearly every single day. He was always so strong and I'm so glad I had him in my life. I love you papaw, I miss you so much.

    My pawpaw is still around, but when I heard this I cried and that's one thing I don't do! I couldn't imagine my life without hime. From cars, too trucks, too farming, too building a house from the ground up! My success is through him. I am him! He has taught me everything. He is tough as nails, stands up for what he believes in, he is righteous, and shows a love that couldn't possibly be duplicated by anyone else. I wish there was a way to keep him around forever, I could spend the rest of my life trying to thank him but it still wouldn't be enough for what he has done for me! I can't stand to think of the day when he is gone! Love you grandpa.
