Grandma's Hands  Bill Withers

...GRANDMA'S HANDS... by Bill Withers

*from 'Just As I Am' (1971)*
[Am] Mmm-mm-mm,
Verse 1:
[Am] Grandma's hands,
Clapped in church,
On Sunday morning,
Grandma's hands,
Played a [E7]tambourine so well.
[Am] Grandma's hands,
Used to issue,
Out a warning,
She'd say, "[E7]Billy don't you,
[D7] Run so fast,
[E7] Might fall on,
A [D7]piece of glass,
[E7] "Might be snakes there,
[D7] In that grass",
[Am] Grandma's hands.
Verse 2:
[Am] Grandma's hands,
Soothed a local unwed mother,
Grandma's hands,
Used to [E7]ache,
Sometimes and swell.
[Am] Grandma's hands,
Used to lift her face,
And tell her,
[E7] "Baby, Grandma [D7]understands,
[E7] That you really,[D7]
[D7] Love that man,
[E7] Put yourself,
In [D7]Jesus hands",
[Am] Grandma's hands.
Verse 3:
[Am] Grandma's hands,
Used to hand me,
Piece of candy,
Grandma's hands,
Picked me [E7]up,
Each time I fell.
[Am] Grandma's hands,
Boy, they really,
Came in handy,
She'd say,[E7] "Matty don' you,
[D7] Whip that boy,
[E7] What you want,
To [D7]spank him for?
[E7] He didn' drop,
No [D7]apple core",
But I [E7]don't have,
Grandma [D7]anymore,
[E7] If I get to Heaven,
[D7] I'll look for,
[Am] Grandma's hands.
[Am] Mmm-mm-mm.

[Am] [E7] [D7]
