Lyrics Grandpa Was a Carpenter

Oh Grandpa wore his suit to dinner
Nearly every day
No particular reason
He just dressed that way
Brown necktie and 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
Grandpa was a carpenter
He built houses stores and banks
Chain smoked Camel cigarettes
And hammered nails in planks
He was level on the level
And shaved even every door
And voted for Eisenhower
'Cos 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
Grandpa was a carpenter
He built houses stores and banks
Chain smoked Camel cigarettes
And hammered nails in planks
He was level on the level
And shaved even every door
And voted for Eisenhower
'Cos Lincoln won the war
Now my grandma was a teacher
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 pride
And used to buy me comic books
After Grandpa died
Grandpa was a carpenter
He built houses stores and banks
Chain smoked Camel cigarettes
And hammered nails in planks
He was level on the level
And shaved even every door
And voted for Eisenhower
'Cos Lincoln won the war
