Here's one my 'lighter' story songs. I was very close to my grandmother. Years ago, she passed away at the age of 89. She taught me many things. She gave me many tips on cooking, sewing, cleaning and she also taught me how to make a penny squeal for its life. She survived the Great Depression. She also gave me some wonderful advice about life in general. I loved her very much, and this my tribute to her and all the grandmothers out there.

Verse 1

We put her to rest on Sunday
Oh the difference in my life Granny made
She was always there for me with a guiding hand
Making sure I didn't stray

I was just a stupid kid doing what you do at sixteen
But I knew I better behave
When Mama said Granny
Wanted to speak with me


And I remember those talks
In her dining room
That crystal chandelier
And the sun comin' through
Reflecting pretty colors all around
She was always there
With advice and smile
Making sure I wasn't feeling down
Always there to catch me when I'd fall
Just me and Granny
And rainbows on the wall

Verse 2

Now I got kids of my own
Mama teaches them lessons
Like Granny taught to me
And Mama carries on
In the same way that her own mother did

Oh I know that Granny's walking
With Grandpa in a better place
And her loving care stays with me
That time won't erase

Repeat chorus


And as we said goodbye to Granny
In her final resting place
A rainbow appeared across the sky
Right after the rain
