Grandma's Feather Bed (In Concert) - John Denver (約翰·丹佛)

When I was a little bitty tad just up off a floor

 

We used to go down to grandma's house ev'ry month end or so

We'd have chicken pies and country ham 'n' home made butter on the bread

But the best darn thing about Grandma's house was her great big feather bed

It was nine feet high and six feet wide soft as a downy chick

 

It was made from the feathers of forty 'leven geese took a whole bolt of cloth for the tick

It'd hold eight kids 'n' four hound dogs and a piggy we stole from the shed

 

We didn't get much sleep but we had a lot of fun on grandma's feather bed

 

After supper we'd sit around the fire the old folks'd spit and chew

Pa would talk about the farm and the war and granny'd sing a ballad or two

I'd sit and listen and watch the fire till the cobwebs filled my head

Next thing I'd know I'd wake up in the morn in the middle of the old feather bed

It was nine feet high and six feet wide soft as a downy chick

 

It was made from the feathers of forty 'leven geese took a whole bolt of cloth for the tick

It'd hold eight kids 'n' four hound dogs and a piggy we stole from the shed

We didn't get much sleep but we had a lot of fun on grandma's feather bed

 

Well I love my ma I love my pa I love granny and grandpa too

I've been fishin' with my uncle I rassled with my cousin I even kissed Aunt Lou eww

 

But if I ever had to make a choice I guess it ought to be said

That I'd trade 'em all plus the gal down the road for grandma's feather bed

 

It was nine feet high and six feet wide soft as a downy chick

 

It was made from the feathers of forty 'leven geese took a whole bolt of cloth for the tick

It'd hold eight kids 'n' four hound dogs and a piggy we stole from the shed

We didn't get much sleep but we had a lot of fun on grandma's feather bed

 

We didn't get much sleep but we had a lot of fun on grandma's feather bed
