Grandpa Fell in the Arborvitae

Grandpa fell in the arborvitae
Don’t you know it’s true
Grandpa fell in the arborvitae
There ain’t nothin’ else he could do

he leaned that ladder up on the farmhouse
he was makin’ some repairs
he started fallin’ and he reached for the roof
and all he caught was air

Grandpa fell in the arborvitae
we’re lucky that he’s ok
Grandpa fell in the arborvitae
he’s always been lucky that way

(inst)

Grandpa fell in the arborvitae
I guess he had a pretty close call
Grandpa fell in the arborvitae
but he didn’t break nothin’ at all

There wasn’t nothin’ to hold on to
and he was headed for the ground
So it’s a good that that ol’ tree was there
’cause it sure slowed him down

Grandpa fell in the arborvitae
he’s lucky nobody saw
Grandpa fell in the arborvitae
and that sure would’ve bothered Grandma
