Steve Spurgin – Grandma's Remedy lyrics

Grandma's got a remedy, a remedy for you and me
It cures what ails you, yessiree - I do believe it's true
Grandma's got a remedy, a remedy for you and me
It cures what ails you, yessiree - and makes you happy too
It's black as tar and tastes like ink
But if you're sick and start to sink
It'll put you right back in the pink
And change your attitude
It's good for fleas and croup and gout
And if your glands start poochin' out
Take a double swaller and you'll find out'
It starts to tastin' good
Grandma's got a remedy, a remedy for you and me
It cures what ails you, yessiree - I do believe it's true
Grandma's got a remedy, a remedy for you and me
It cures what ails you, yessiree - and makes you happy too
Not long ago she said to me,
"Here's the family recipe
Since this old world's about through with me
I'm gonna hand it down to you
It's been around a hundred years
Kept us well through joy and tears
If you lose it, boy, I'll box your ears
Now here's just what you do."
"Black strap molasses, turpentine, black pepper, elderberry wine,
Two quarts of Grandpaw's 'Rebel Yell' - be sure to hold your nose
Bury it in a jug out back, wait until it's good and black
Then strain it through a flour sack - and don't get none on your clothes."
Grandma's got a remedy, a remedy for you and me
It cures what ails you yessiree - I do believe it's true
Grandma's got a remedy, a remedy for you and me
It cures what ails you yessiree - and makes you happy too
It cures what ails you yessiree - and it'll change your attitude..
