Rhett Akins - Grandaddy's Gun Lyrics

Rhett Akins / Dallas Davidson



It sets above the mantel on a couple rusty nails

and its worth a bunch of money

but it damn sure ain’t for sale

the good lord only knows all the stories it could tell

Granddaddy’s Gun



He bought it new out of the sears and robuck catalog

And it shot a many a shell over the top of an old bird dog

And it backed a burglar down when grandma took the safety off

Granddaddy’s gun.



(chorus)



It’s just a double barrel twelve

The stock is cracked and it kick’s like hell

It wouldn’t mean what mean’s to me to no one

I can hear his voice when I put it to my shoulder

Guns like a woman son it’s all how you hold her

He taught me a whole lot more than how to hunt

And one of these days I’ll pass it on to my son

Granddaddy’s Gun



He handed it to me on the day I turned thirteen

With a half shot box of shells and a kit to keep it clean

I keep a picture in the case of that sweet old man and me

with granddaddy’s gun



Chorus



It’s just a double barrel twelve

The stock is cracked and it kick’s like hell

It wouldn’t mean what mean’s to me to no one

I can hear his voice when I put it to my shoulder

Guns like a woman son it’s all how you hold her

He taught me a whole lot more than how to hunt

And one of these days I’ll pass it on to my son

Granddaddy’s Gun



There’s a long beard livin’ on the livin’ room wall

That I got with a box call and Granddaddy’s gun

There’s a shot up stop sign on forty nine

That me and billy joe took out one night

With granddaddy’s gun (twice)





It sets above the mantel on a couple rusty nails

And It’s worth a bunch of money but it damn sure ain’t for sale
