    Lyrics

    Baby don't you run so fast
    (She was always giving us a warning)
    Might be snakes there in that grass
    (She was looking out,)
    Grandma's Hands
    (I remember them well.)

    Grandma's hands
    Clapped in church on Sunday morning
    Grandma's hands Played the tambourine so well
    Grandma's hands Used to issue out a warning
    She'd say "Gladys 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
    She'd say "Baby, Grandma understands.
    That you really love that man.
    Put yourself in Jesus' hands."
    Grandma's hands

    Couldn't wait till Sunday morning (oh baby don't you run so fast)
    Cooking up that fried chicken,
    Smelling up the whole house

    "Gladys don't you run so fast!
    Might fall on a piece of glass!
    Might be snakes there in that grass!"
    Grandma's hands

    Ain't nothing like grandma's hands

    Family is a gift of god,
    With this song I'd like to pay harness
    To one of it's members
    Over the years her importance has been diminished
    Her image tarnished, but to me she'll always be a rare jewel
    I've heard her called by many loving nicknames
    Nana, Mimi, Mamaw, Big Mama, Poppi
    But unlike millions of others, I simply call her Grandma

    Ain't nothing like grandma's hands

    Let me tell you this

    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 "Baby, don't you whip that boy !
    What you want to spank him for?
    He didn't drop no apple core !"
    But I don't have Grandma anymore
    If I get to heaven I'll look for,Grandma's Hands

    Ain't nothing like grandma's hands
    Used to hand me some candy
    Grandma's hands Picked me up each time I fell
    Grandma's hands Boy, they really came in handy
    She'd say "Baby, don't you whip that boy!
    What you want to whip him for?
    He didn't drop no apple core!"
