Silver gray hair neatly combed in place.
She was so wise, no surprise passed her eyes,

All day I'd ask questions.
But whenever; she never, would ever, turn me away.
I'd say how can I be sure what is right or wrong ?
Please tell me where does God live

Will I ever find out ?
I want to know the answers before I fall off to sleep.
She sort of smiled as she tucked me in.
But tonight she was slightly, remarkably

Grandma yawned as she stretched.
What she told me, would mold me, and hold me

You will know someday.
God put us here by fate

Ain't no morning gonna come 'til the time is right.
You gotta make it through the night, yes you do.
You can't get to no better days
Oh, you will see those better days
(Be patient) oh baby, be patient.
Later that year, at the turn of spring,
Now, she's flying, and sliding, and gliding

I still get confused.
Getting bumped and bruised.
I could still hear my Grandma say
I can hear her say.
(Be patient) You can't get to no better days
(Be patient) Oh, you will see those better days
Child, do you hear me, yeah.
(Be patient) You can't get to no better days
You got to make it

Do you see me now, lady

She used to comb my hair
My Grandma took me everywhere
