Joe Diffie - The Grandpa That I Know
A D A E A X2
[A]Brand new shoes they [D]hurt my [A]feet
This necktie is [E]chokin‚?[A]? me
Cuttin‚?? off m[D]y air s[A]upply
When I hang my [E]head to [A]cry
When I hang my [E]head and [A]cry.
[A]I see tears on [D]daddy‚??[A]s face
Someone‚??s hummin‚[E]??, Amaz[A]in‚?? Grace
Rain beats on this [D]graveside [A]tent
Preacher swears he [E]did re[A]pent
Preacher swears he [E]did re[A]pent.[Ab]
Chorus:
They‚??v[E]e got him layin[A]‚?? there in pinstripes
[D]How‚??d they get hi[A]m in tha[E]t suit
I [D]guess the Lord with [A]recognize him
Without his over[E]alls and [A]mules
[E]They all say he [A]looks so natural
[D]All I see is a [A]cold dark [E]hole
I [D]won‚??t commit thi[A]s day to memory
That ain‚??t The Grandp[E]a That [A]I Know
That ain‚??t The Grandp[E]a That [A]I Know.

Ya know [B]no tractor never [E]pulled his [B]plow
He walked and cussed, and [F#m]loved that [B]ground
His hands sowed each [E]single [B]seed
Then prayed for rain and [F#m]fight the [B]weeds
Prayed for rain and [F#m]fight the [B]weeds.
He said the [B]simple life, [E]suits me [B]fine
Never dreamed beyond the [F#m]county [B]line
Grandma was his [E]boyhood [B]bride
He‚??ll be back in he[F#m]r arms [B]tonight
He‚??ll sleep there in he[F#m]r arms [B]tonigh[Bb]t.
Chorus2:

[E]All I see is a [B]cold dark [F#m]hole
I [E]won‚??t commit thi[B]s day to memory
