Grandmas Feather Bed

John Denver

 DGDA7
  When I was a  little bitty boy  just up off-a  floor
 DGDA7
  We used to go down to  Grandma's house  every monthend or
 D
  so
 GDA7
We'd chicken pie and  country ham ‘n'  homemade butter on the  
bread
 DGA7
But the  best darn thing about  Grandma's house was her  great
big feather
 D
  bed.  It was

 DGD
Chorus:  nine feet tall and six feet wide  soft as a downy  
chick
 D
It was made from the feathers of forty ‘leven geese,
 E7A7
Took a  whole bolt of cloth for the  tick
 DG
It'd  hold eight kids ‘n' four hound dogs and a  piggy we stole
 D
from the shed
 GA7
We didn't get much sleep but we  had a lot of fun on  Grandma's
 D
feather  bed

After supper we'd sit around the fire the old floks'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. It
was

Chorus:

 DGA7
  for one bar,  for a bar, and  for a bar, then:
 DGD
  Well I love my Ma, I  love my Pa, I love  Granny and Grandpa
 A7
  too
 DG
I been  fishin' with my uncle, I  rassled with my cousins
 DA7D
 even kissed  Aunt  Lou
 GDA7
But if I ever had  to make a choice, I  guess it ought to be  
 saidDG
 That I'd  trade ‘em all plus the  gal down the road
 A7D
For  Grandma's feather  bed
 GA7
I'd trade ‘em all plus the  gal down the road..... 
It was
