"Grandma's Hands" as written by and Bill Withers....
Grandma's hands clapped in church on Sunday morning
Grandma's hands played a tambourine so well
Grandma's hands used to issue out a warning
She'd say Ronny don't you run so fast
You might fall on a piece of glass
There might be snakes there in the grass
Grandma's hands

Grandma's hands soothed a local unwed mother
Grandma's hands used to ache sometimes and swell
Grandma's hands used to lift a face and tell her
She'd say baby Grandma understands
That you really love that man
Put your faith in Jesus' hands
Grandma's hands

Grandma's hands used to hand me a piece of candy
Grandma's hands picked me each time I'd fall
Grandma's hands
Lord they really came in handy
She'd say Edith don't you whip that boy
What'cha wanna spank him for
He didn't steal that candy from no store
But I don't have Grandma anymore
When I get to heaven
I'm gonna look for Grandma's hands
