I'm My Own Grandpa
Recorded by Willie Nelson
Written by Moe Jaffe and Dwight Latham

G D7
Now many many years ago when I was twenty three
I was married to a widow who was pretty as could be
G7 Am
This widow had a grown-up daughter had hair of red
A7 D7
My father fell in love with her and soon the two were wed

G D7
This made my dad my son-in-law and changed my very life
My daughter was my mother cause she was my father's wife
G7 Am
To complicate the matters even though it brought me joy
A7 D7
I soon became the father of a bouncing baby boy

G D7
My little baby then became a brother-in-law to dad
And so became my uncle though it made me very sad
G7 Am
For if he was my uncle that also made him the brother
A7 D7
Of the widow's grown-up daughter who of course was my step-mother

G D7 G C Am C
I'm my own grandpa I'm my own grandpa
G G7 C A7
It sounds funny I know but it really is so
G D7 G
I'm my own grandpa

My father's wife then had a son that kept them on the run
And he became my grandchild for he was my daughter's son
G7 Am
My wife is now my mother's mother and it makes me blue
A7 D7
Because she is my wife she's my grandmother too

repeat #4

G D7
Now if my wife is my grandmother then I am her grandchild
And every time I think of it it nearly drives me wild
G7 Am
For now I have become the strangest case you ever saw
A7 D7
As the husband of my grandmother I am my own grandpa

repeat #4 x2
