Grandpa and Grandma Blues

This song is by Memphis Minnie and appears on the compilation album The Best of Memphis Minnie Vol. 1 1929-1938 (1982).

Grandma got something, make grandpa break his pipe
Grandma got something, make grandpa break his pipe
And grandpa got something, keep grandma awake all night

Grandma grandma, please don't sleep so long
Grandma grandma, please don't sleep so long
Grandpa ain't smoked his pipe, grandma since you been gone

Here comes grandpa, staring up and down the road
Here comes grandpa, staring up and down the road
With that pipe in his hand, he'll find you everywhere you go

Grandma grandma, why don't you stay at home
Grandma grandma, why don't you stay at home
That's why you and grandpa, grandma can't get along

Grandma grandma, what makes you love grandpa so
Grandma grandma, what makes you love grandpa so
He's got the same pipe now, he had forty years ago

Grandpa swears, he won't get drunk no more
Grandpa swears, he won't get drunk no more
Because he broke his pipe, he had forty years ago
