      About "Grandpa Was A Carpenter"

      Lyrics for Nitty Gritty Dirt Band - "Grandpa Was A Carpenter"

      Oh, grandpa wore his suit to dinner nearly every day
      No particular reason, he just dressed that way
      Brown necktie with a matching vest and both his wingtip shoes
      He built a closet on our back porch and put a penny in a burned-out fuse

      [Chorus]
      Grandpa was a carpenter, he built houses, stores and banks
      Chain-smoked camel cigarettes, and hammered nails in planks
      He would level on the level, he shaved even every door
      And voted for Eisenhower, cause Lincoln won the war

      Well, he used to sing me "blood on the saddle" and rock me on his knee
      And let me listen to the radio before we got TV
      Well, he'd drive to church on Sunday and he'd take me with him too
      Stained glass in every window, hearing aids in every pew

      [Chorus]

      Well, my grandma was a teacher, she went to school in bowling green
      Traded in a milking cow for a singer sewing machine
      Well, she called her husband "mister," and she walked real tall and proud
      She used to buy me comic books after grandpa died

      [Chorus]
