TITLE: Grandma's Feather Bed
Lyrics and Chords

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

/ D G D A7 / D G A7 D / :

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

/ D - G D / - - / E7 A7 / D - G D / - G A7 D / 

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 my 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 know I'd wake up in the morning in the middle of the old feather bed 


Well I love my Ma, I love my Pa, love Gran' and Grandpa too 
Been fishing with my uncle, I rassled with my cousin
I even kissed Aunt Lou 
But if ever had to make a choice, I guess it ought to be said 
That I'd trade them all plus the gal down the road for Grandma's feather bed
