Lightnin' Hopkins – Grandma Told Grandpa lyrics

Grandma told grandpa, lovin' between us is sure true
Grandma told grandpa, lovin' between us is sure true
Whoa, grandpa said, "If you love me,
Little girl, I hope to die that I sure love you"
She woke up one mornin' and the sun was shinin',
Made her think way back
And daddy began to, he began to laugh,
Because that was the sun shinin' that he was laughin'
And boy, I tell ya, it made me feel pretty good.
The old man then got on his feet now, he said,
"I don't have to pick no cotton,
I'm so glad I don't have to pull no corn
Whoa, Lord, have mercy
So glad I don't have to pull no corn"
He said, "If I see a mule run away with the world,
Lightnin, I'm just gonna tell him to go head on"
Whoa, yeah, one more time
