Justin Moore - Grandpa Lyrics

You stood on that bank when I got baptized,
Gave me a 30-30 when I turned 9.
At 16 you caught me drinkin' out in the barn.
I could hear you cheerin' when we won state, and you held my hand at Grandma's grave.
And I'll always be thankful, that you never sold the farm.

Grandpa, you stood so tall,
Chewed that Red Man wore overalls.
You were the same man on Sunday morning as Saturday night.
You were five foot six to the top of your hat but, when you talked about the war I thought you were superman.
American born simple man with a southern drawl.
You walk the walk, talk the talk, Grandpa.

You still swear Roosevelt was the best.
That a home grown tomato tastes better than the rest and, fifty years goes too fast with a woman you love.
Well this life I've chose is gettin' busy now but I know where to go when I need to slow down and when I walk up on your front porch;
It's just like I'm still young.

Grandpa, you stood so tall,
Chewed that Red Man wore overalls.
You were the same man on Sunday morning as Saturday night.
You were five foot six to the top of your hat but, when you talked about the war I thought you were superman.
American born simple man with a southern drawl.
You walk the walk, talk the talk, Grandpa.

Yeah, American born a dirt road man with that slow southern drawl.
Now keep walkin' the walk and talkin' the talk, Grandpa.

    This song reminds me of my mom’s dad
    He left us to soon
    I love him and he’s war stories

  7. TrikShotzGaming

    My grandpa always chewed that Red Man Tobacco. I can’t forget his face. Everything grown on his farm was better than everything. Whenever I went to visit him it was so relaxing to be at his house. Best advice came from him. Most southern man I knew. I sure will miss him. And I can’t wait to see him again up there on a dirt road with his house on the shoulder of the road.

    Hardest phone call I ever got was to hear you passed. You were my best friend. You were my safe place my whole life. Ive missed you for over 4 years and I'll miss you til I take my last breathe. I love you. Forever. 😔

  20. Landon Hays

    I'm pretty sure he's my brother. My grandpa exactly. I miss him so much I can't stand it. When he died it knocked the daylight out 8 AM, and made gray nights black. He was everything, I seriously can't describe how much I miss him. No one will ever know. I'm crying my eyes out while writing this, probably misspelling half of it because my eyes are blurry. I think about him every day.

  24. Sharon Juarez

    I wish my grandpa was still here. This song is him all the way. I miss him everyday

  25. Brian Pyles

    My mom called this morning and said that Grandaddy went to the hospital last night cause he couldn’t breathe.
    Well, today Both lungs have collapsed and he’s on life support.
    They can’t afford ANYTHING other than to pull the plug on Friday. 3 days from now..
    I live in Memphis, they live in Florida..
    Drive way to drive way is 16 hours, And I gotta work...

    Wish I could say goodbye.

  26. rescue08jr Gaming

    Staff Sergeant Dewey Wayne Farmer
    Vietnam Veteran
    Great Grandfather

    He’s not dead yet but he won’t be alive 10 or 15 years from now and it’s been weighing on my mind that he won’t be here forever. He’s been there for me through everything and this song describes him so perfectly. Except for the state part. I played tennis all four years of high school and he never really went to my matches because it was always a really long drive but he came to the ones that he could.
    He’s in his late 70’s and he refuses to stop doing work on our land. Every day he’s on the Ranger driving through the pasture checking on the cows, horses and making sure the fence is in tact. He’s always got some project that he’s working on. Another thing is he doesn’t dip but he smokes.
    I just really wish there was some way for him to stay forever. I don’t know that I’ll be prepared to lose him and I love him so much.

    I hope to make him proud when I join the Air Force later this year. I plan on serving as Security Forces until I get a degree in Avionics and I’ll become a pilot hopefully.

  27. Bubbles

    My grandpa passed when I was three years old. My Dad said he could visualize him and I driving around his old pickup truck driving around town cracking jokes, But sadly, He is not here for me to do that with him. But I'd damn well give anything in the world away if it meant I could ride shotgun with him one time. Only if heaven wasn't so far away! Amen

    My Grandpa is Struggling everyday he wakes up he is 61 years old and he works at a rubber band factory, He has no blood flow in his right leg and he has been to
    the doctor and every time he goes they always tell him that he has something else wrong but I know what is wrong and these doctors around here are not worth
    anything. He is raising his grandaughter cause her mother and father are not worth anything and he can't do much anymore and my family are the only ones that
    him with anything he needs.

I felt at peace knowing I had forgiving him.

    My grandpa died on my little sister's birthday and it was so sad. He had a heart of gold and silver filled his hair. @Gram Forster made that comment and it made me think more about my grandpa.

    Edit: My grandpa was suffering from a blood cancer called Leukemia. God took him from us in November 18, 2017. We all know he's in a batter place. We all know he's okay now and God will treat him well.

  53. Clinton Barker

    My grandpa died just over a year ago and i miss him more than anything in this world. He was only about 5'7 but to me he was a giant. He gave me almost every gun I own. He was so important to me and my cousins and when we lost him we lost part of ourselves to.

  57. Pondy Hsu

    He stood on that bank when I got baptized,
    Gave me a thirty thirty when I turned nine,
    At sixteen, you caught me drinking,
    Out in the barn,

    I could hear you cheerin' when we won state,
    You held my hand at grandma's grave,
    And I'll always be thankful,
    You never sold the farm

    Grandpa, you stood so tall,
    Chewed that redman, wore over-alls,
    You were the same man on Sunday morning,
    As Saturday night

    Five foot six to the top of your hat,
    But when you talked 'bout the war,
    Thought you were superman,
    American born simple man,
    With a southern draw
    You walk the walk, you Talk the talk,
    you still swear Rosabella's the best,
    And a home grown tamata',
    Taste better than the rest,
    And 50 years goes too fast,
    With a woman you love,

    Well this life I've chose Is gettin' busy now,
    But I know where to go,
    When I need to slow down,
    When I walk up on your front porch,
    It's just like I'm still young

    Grandpa, you stood so tall,
    Chewed that red man, wore over-alls,
    You were the same man on Sunday morning,
    As Saturday night
    Five foot six to the top of your hat,
    But when you talked 'bout the war,
    Thought you were superman,
    American born simple man,
    With a southern draw
    You walked the walk, you Talked the talk,

    Yeah, American born,
    Dirt road man with a slow southern draw
    Now keep walkin' the walk and talkin' the talk,
    Grandpa, hmm.....
