Hello Granny 

My life is just a story 

That's waiting to be told 

And my mama's mama's been part of that story 

Since I was one year old 

 

Hello Granny

Tell me how do you do

With your little dog yipping 

Your knitting needles clicking 

I send this song to you

Hello Granny

 

I used to have a horse 

That Granny and I would ride

From CA to AL 

In just one hour's time 

 

Brushed in red and brown  

A horse hangs on my wall  

And at the bottom it is signed  

Love Granny Cheryl 

 

Hello Granny 

Tell me how do you do 

With your little dog yipping  

Your knitting needles clicking  

I send this song to you 

Hello Granny 

  

I would site in front of the mirror  

Just watching you braid your hair  

Your twistin' tanglin' fingers confusin'  

The little girl sitting there

 

Hello Granny 

Tell me how do you do 

With your little dog yipping  

Your knitting needles clicking  

I send this song to you 

Hello Granny 

  

My life is just a story  

That my Granny makes sure to tell  

To her friends and her neighbors  

And sometimes me as well  

  

Hello Granny 

Tell me how do you do 

With your little dog yipping  

Your knitting needles clicking  

I send this song to you 

Hello Granny

Away From the Shore 

You are a lighthouse 

A beacon for me 

You are a lighthouse 

I know where I should be 

 

Sometimes I drift

Away from the shore

And I need help

To find my way back again

A guide to help me find my way again

 

 

You are an anchor  

When the waters get rough  

You are an anchor 

I am safe in the treacherous  

  

Sometimes I drift 

Away from the shore 

And I need help 

To find my way back again 

A guide to help me find my way again

 

 

You are a compass  

The ship stays on course  

You are a compass  

Always pointing true north  

  

Sometimes I drift 

Away from the shore 

And I need help 

To find my way back again 

A guide to help me find my way again

Chasin' After the Wind 

You work so hard under the sun 

But the one who follows will enjoy the fruit you've won

And what more can you do 

Than what's already been done

This is meaningless 

A chasin' after the wind 

 

The generations come and the generations go 

But the sun will always rise and set on the earth below 

And what more can you do 

Than what's already been done

This is meaningless 

A chasin' after the wind  

 

 

Like an ear that's never done hearing  

To love the profit is to never be done receiving  

And what more can you do  

Than what's already been done 

This is meaningless  

A chasin' after the wind  

  

We must take care in how our work is done 

For we pass like a shadow under the sun  

And what more can we do than be satisfied  

With our work, not what it provides  

Because everyone dies  

There's the same fate for the fools and the wise 

 

 

You work so hard under the sun  

But the one who follows will enjoy the fruit you've won 

And what more can you do  

Than what's already been done 

This is meaningless  

A chasin' after the wind 

Like a Bird

You're like a bird 

Flying above all others

x2

 

I fall asleep 

To your gentle melody 

x2 

 

Your wings are strong  

They lift me up and carry me on 

x2 

  

But sometimes you falter  

Only to take to the wind again
