Grandma's Hands Lyrics

Artist: Bill Withers
Album: Lean On Me: The Best Of Bill Withers

Grandma's hands
Clapped in church on Sunday morning
Grandma's hands
Played a tambourine so well
Grandma's hands
Used to issue out a warning
She'd say, "Billy don't you run so fast
Might fall on a piece of glass
"Might be snakes there in that grass"
Grandma's hands

Grandma's hands
Soothed a local unwed mother
Grandma's hands
Used to ache sometimes and swell
Grandma's hands
Used to lift her face and tell her,
"Baby, Grandma understands
That you really love that man
Put yourself in Jesus hands"
Grandma's hands

Grandma's hands
Used to hand me piece of candy
Grandma's hands
Picked me up each time I fell
Grandma's hands
Boy, they really came in handy
She'd say, "Matty don' you whip that boy
What you want to spank him for?
He didn' drop no apple core"
But I don't have Grandma anymore

If I get to Heaven I'll look for
Grandma's hands

This comment goes to ghfyjggh and kiavc dagadj: Why are you commenting bad on this song? This song can't be bad because it was used in Tyler Perry's Movie Madea's Family Reuinon. It just shows you what he felt about his grandmother.

this song has become my theme song NOW that I'm a grandma. it describes me and encourages me. my grandchildren may never write a song about me but I pray when they hear this one they will always think of me. Thanks, Grandma; M.Reed(R.I.P) for raising me after the my mother death. You did good.

This song reminds me of my grandmother upon my mothers death my grandmother raised me. My mother even named me after my grandmother. Whatever her hands could find to do she did it on the family land , home , or church.
