words and music: Jim Connor

D            G                D             A7
When I was a little bitty boy just up off-a floor
D                     G               D           A7     D
We used to go down to Grandma’s house every month end or so
                         G               D                      A7
We’d eat chicken pie and country ham ‘n’ homemade butter on the bread
        D                     G                       A7                D
But the best darn thing about Grandma’s house was her great big feather bed.

       D                             G               D
It was nine feet high, six feet wide soft as a downy chick
It was made from the feathers of forty ‘leven geese,
       E7                          A7
Took a whole bolt of cloth for the tick
     D                                         G                       D
It’d hold eight kids ‘n’ four hound dogs and a piggy we stole from the shed
                                G                   A7                D
We didn’t get much sleep but we had a lot of fun on Grandma’s feather bed

After supper we’d sit around the fire the old folks’d spit and chew
Pa would talk about the farm and the war and Granny’d sing a ballad or two
I’d sit and listen and watch the fire till the cobwebs filled my head
Next thing I’d know I’d wake up in the mornin’ in the middle of the old
feather bed.


 D      G      A7

D                    G                  D                  A7
Well I love my Ma, I love my Pa, I love Granny and Grandpa too
       D                        G   
I been fishin’ with my uncle, I rassled with my cousins
  D           A7   D
I even kissed Aunt Lou
                  G                   D                    A7
But if I ever had to make a choice, I guess it ought to be said
         D                      G
That I’d trade ‘em all plus the gal down the road
    A7                D
For Grandma’s feather bed
                           G                     A7
I’d trade ‘em all plus the gal down the road.....
