Grandmas Feather Bed

John Denver

 GC
 When I was a little bitty boy
 GD
 Just up off the floor,
 GC
We used to go down to Grandma's house
 GDG
 Every month end or so
 GC
We'd have chicken pie, country ham
 GD
 Home-made butter on the bread
 GC
But the best darn thing about Grandma'a house
 DG
Was the great big feather bed

Chorus
 GC
It was nine feet high, six feet wide
 G
 Soft as a downy chick
 GC
 It was mad of the feathers of four-eleven geese
 G
 And a while roll of clothe for the tick
 GC
It could hold eight kids, four hound dogs
 G
And the piggy that we stole form the shed (oink, oink!)
 GC
 Didn't get much sleep but we had alot of fun
 DG
In Grandma's feather bed

After supper we'd sit around the fire
The old folks 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 morn'
In the middle of the old feather bed

Chorus

Well, I love my ma, I love my pa
I love Granny and Granpa too
Been fishing with my uncle, wrestled with my cousin
And I even kissed aunt Sue (ooo!)
But if I ever had to make a choice
I think it oughta be said
That I'd trade them all plus the gal down the road
For Grandma's feather bed
(Well, maybe not the gal down the road)
