Grandpa Told Me So

In the style of

Kenny Chesney

Lyrics

if you don't
get in the water
you're never gonna
learn to swim

he said a snake
is just as
scared of you
as you are of him

he could tell
by the moon
when the fish
would bite
seems there
was nothin'
that he didn't know

and as a kid
i believed
'cause grandpa
told me so

he talked daddy
into lettin' me have
my first car

i thought i was
really somethin'
till becky thompson
broke my heart

that first
taste of love
nearly did me in
getting over her
was slow

but i knew
someday i would
'cause grandpa
told me so

he said
life was made
for you to live
the best love
is the love
that you give

there'll be times
when you'll wanna
hold on
but you gotta let go

and i live
by those words
'cause grandpa
told me so

i promised him
i wouldn't cry
when it was his time
to leave

that's the
only promise
i made him
i couldn't keep

he smiled from his bed
and said
we'll meet again
somewhere
down the road
and i believe
'cause grandpa
told me so

he said
life was made
for you to live
the best love
is the love
that you give

there'll be times
when you'll wanna
hold on
but you gotta let go

and i live
by those words
'cause grandpa
told me so

he said
life was made
for you to live
the best love
is the love
that you give

there'll be times
when you'll wanna
hold on
but you gotta let go

and i live
by those words
'cause grandpa
told me so
yeah and i still believe
grandpa told me so
grandpa told me so
i still believe

grandpa told me so
i still believe
