Well, here's a little story
that I would like to tell,
It's all about my grandma -
we loved her oh so well;
She was a charming lady,
a pillar of the faith,
She kept us all together
with dignity and grace.

Grandma wore an apron,
she wore it every day,
To cover up her tattered dress,
to keep the stains away;
She took it off each Sunday morn
as off to church she'd go,
And put it on when she got back -
God love her so.

We all loved grandma's apron,
it could wipe away our tears,
Or clean the scratches from our knees
when we slipped on the stairs;
Tied up in the corner was a coin or two,
She'd often call us to her knees
sayin' I've got this for you.

Grandma wore an apron,
she wore it every day,
To cover up her tattered dress,
to keep the stains away;
She took it off each Sunday morn
as off to church she'd go,
And put it on when she got back -
God love her so.

I can see that apron on the line,
hanging by its hem,
Whitened by the lye soap,
the sun and the southern wind;
She always had a clean one
just to dry the fish,
For working in the kitchen,
cooking up a dish.

Let's toast to every grandma
and the apron that she wore,
Hanging on a copper hook
just inside the door;
It's a little rhyme that came to me
to brighten up your day,
And just recall the days gone by
in a priceless kind of way.

Grandma wore an apron,
she wore it every day,
To cover up her tattered dress,
to keep the stains away;
She took it off each Sunday morn
as off to church she'd go,
And put it on when she got back -
God love her so.
And put it on when she got back -
God love her so.
