OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
When I was a little bitty boy
Just up off the floor
We used to go out to Grandma's house
Every month end or so

Do an allemande left with the corner girl, come back dosado
Left allemande the corner girl and weave the ring you know
It was nine feet high and six feet wide
Soft as a downy chick
, do a dosado
Go back to back and promenade you bet
It'll hold eight kids, four hound dogs
And a piggy we stole from the shed
Didn't get much sleep, but we had a lotta fun
On Grandma's feather bed

Didn't get much sleep, but we had a lotta fun
On Grandma's feather bed

Grandma's Feather Bed  (1973)

When I was a little bitty boy
Just up off the floor
We used to go down to Grandma's house
Every month end or so
We had chicken pie and country ham
And homemade butter on the bread
But the best darn thing about Grandma's house
Was her great big feather bed

It was nine feet high and six feet wide
Soft as a downy chick
It was made from the feathers of forty 'leven geese
Took a whole bolt of cloth for the tick
It'd hold eight kids, four hound dogs
And a piggy we stole from the shed
We didn't get much sleep but we had a lot of fun
On Grandma's feather bed

After the supper we'd sit around the fire
The old folks'd spit and chew
Pa would talk about the farm and the war
And my Granny'd sing a ballad or two
I'd sit and listen and watch the fire
Till the cobwebs filled my head
Next thing I knew I'd wake up in the morning
In the middle of the old feather bed

It was nine feet high and six feet wide
Soft as a downy chick
It was made from the feathers of forty 'leven geese
Took a whole bolt of cloth for the tick
It'd hold eight kids, four hound dogs
And a piggy we stole from the shed
We didn't get much sleep but we had a lot of fun
On Grandma's feather bed

Well I love my Ma, an' I love my Pa
Love Granny and Grandpa too
Been fishing with my uncle, I wrestled with my cousin
I even kissed Aunt Lou - oooh!
But if ever had to make a choice
I guess it ought to be said
That I'd trade them all plus the gal down the road
For Grandma's feather bed

It was nine feet high and six feet wide
Soft as a downy chick
It was made from the feathers of forty 'leven geese
Took a whole bolt of cloth for the tick
It'd hold eight kids, four hound dogs
And a piggy we stole from the shed
We didn't get much sleep but we had a lot of fun
On Grandma's feather bed

Lyrics by Jim Connor.
Recorded by John Denver.
