Gail Davies - Grandma's Song

GAIL DAVIES


Grandma's Song Lyrics

Original WB 1981 Version

Intro:
Old woman singing:

Come a lou, come a lou, come a hi-lo
down the merry stream
Come a ram tam tam, come a dippy dippy dow
Hear the row, the bow wow wow
Bugle horn, the big Fi-diddle and the hidey ho
Through the woods we roam boys
Through the woods we roam

Gail Davies
starts singing:

All along the old back road
The people stop to talk at her garden gate
While inside the family cried all through the night
Cause the old woman had passed away

I loved her so and though she was a special one
A lovely lady and a gentle old soul
And she taught me to sing and old folk song
It's got a melody of a hundred years ago

And she sang "A come a lou, come a lou, come a
hi-lo, come down the merry stream"
I'm remembering

Those memories have given me so much
She wore her age so gracefully
And there was not a living thing that she did not
love
And I pray that there is a little of her in me

Oklahoma in the summertime
In her rockin' chair she's a singing there on the
porch
While the hounds a howling through the hot black
night
And that ole fox well he's a running like he never
has done before

When you hear the melody and when I play my song
Every note you hear from me she's singing right along

And she sang "A come a lou, come a lou, come a
hi-lo, come down the merry stream"
I'm remembering

All along the old back road
People stop to talk at her garden gate
While inside the family cried all through the night
Did you hear that old Mrs. Whitten
has passed away today

Come a lou, come a lou, come a hi-lo
Come down the merry stream
Come a ram tam tam and a dippy dippy dow
Hear the row, the bow wow wow
The bugle's horn, the big Fi-diddle and the hidey ho
Through the woods were gonna roam boys
Through the woods were gonna roam.
