Grandma’s Hands – Bill Withers lyrics

🎵 Let’s sing along with the lyrics! 🎤

Grandma’s handsClapped in church on Sunday morningGrandma’s handsPlayed a tambourine so wellGrandma’s handsUsed to issue out a warningShe’d say, Billy don’t you run so fastMight fall on a piece of glassMight be snakes there in that grassGrandma’s hands
Grandma’s handsSoothed a local unwed motherGrandma’s handsUsed to ache sometimes and swellGrandma’s handsUsed to lift her face and tell herShe’d say, Baby, grandma understandsThat you really love that manPut yourself in Jesus’ handsGrandma’s hands
Grandma’s handsUsed to hand me piece of candyGrandma’s handsPicked me up each time I fellGrandma’s handsBoy, they really came in handyShe’d say, Matty don’ you whip that boyWhat you want to spank him for?He didn’ drop no apple coreBut I don’t have grandma anymore
If I get to heaven I’ll look forGrandma’s handsHmm-mmh
