      About "The Grandpa That I Know"

      Lyrics for Patty Loveless - "The Grandpa That I Know"

      Brand new shoes, they hurt my feet
      This lace collar's chokin' me
      Cuttin' off my air supply
      When I hang my head to cry
      When I hang my head to cry

      I see tears on daddy's face
      Someone's hummin' "Amazing Grace"
      Rain beats on this graveside tier
      Preacher says he did repent
      Preacher says he did repent

      They've got him layin' there in pin stripes
      How'd they get him in that suit?
      I guess the Lord will recognize him
      Without his overalls an' mule
      An' they all say he looks so natural
      But all I see's a cold dark hole
      I won't commit this day to memory
      That ain't the Grandpa that I know
      That ain't the Grandpa that I know

      Tractor never pulled his plough
      He walked, an' cussed, an' loved that ground
      His hand sowed each and every seed
      An' he'd pray for rain an' fight the weeds
      He'd pray for rain an' fight the weeds
      He said: "The simple life, it suits me fine"
      Never dreamed beyond the County line
      Grandma was his boyhood bride
      He'll be there in her arms tonight
      He'll sleep there in her arms tonight

      They've got him layin' there in pin stripes
      How'd they get him in that suit?
      I guess the Lord will recognize him
      Without his overalls an' mule
      An' they all say he looks so natural
      But all I see's a cold dark hole
      I won't commit this day to memory
      That ain't the Grandpa that I know

      They played a pretty organ number
      Swore it was his favorite tune
      But I know he preferred a fiddle
      Playin' Carroll County Blues
      They all say he looks so natural
      But all I see's a cold dark hole
      I won't commit this day to memory
      That ain't the Grandpa that I know
      That ain't the Grandpa that I know
