I DON'T KNOW GEE FROM HAW
Grandpa Jones

If they put me in the jail
I wouldn't know how to go my bail
have to get a lawyer to figure out the law
'cause I don't know gee from haw

CH
I don't know gee from haw
I wish I had some knowledge
It aint no fun being dumb
I wish I'd gone to college

I believe my sweetie's cheating on me
tried every way to find out you see
I talked to her ma, talked to her pa
but I don't know gee from haw

CH

Married a little gal and I got a divorce
married her ma and it made things worse
I think I'll marry her old grandma
'cause I don't know gee from haw

CH

I'd spin a rope but I don't know how
work on a farm but I can't milk a cow
try to saw a log with an old hacksaw
but I don't know gee from haw

CH

That's why people impose on me
'cause I'm so doggone dumb you see
should have taken a lesson or two
so I could learn just what to do

CH
..it aint no fun being dumb, I wish I'd stayed in college
