verse 1 

A                            E7 
Now many many years ago when I was twenty three 
I was married to a widow who was pretty as could be 
                A7                Bm 
This widow had a grown-up daughter had hair of red 
  B7                               E7 
My father fell in love with her and soon the two were wed 

    A                             E7 
This made my dad my son-in-law and changed my very life 
My daughter was my mother cause she was my father's wife 
                 A7           Bm 
To complicate the matters even though it brought me joy 
 B7                          E7 
I soon became the father of a bouncing baby boy 

  A                         E7 
My little baby then became a brother-in-law to dad 
And so became my uncle though it made me very sad 
                A7         Bm 
For if he was my uncle that also made him the brother 
  B7                                E7 
Of the widow's grown-up daughter who of course was my step-mother 

A E7 A D Bm D I'm my own grandpa I'm my own grandpa D A C#m F#m It sounds funny I know but it really is so A E7 A I'm my own grandpa
verse 2 E7 My father's wife then had a son that kept them on the run A And he became my grandchild for he was my daughter's son A7 Bm My wife is now my mother's mother and it makes me blue B7 E7 Because she is my wife she's my grandmother too repeat #4 verse 3 A E7 Now if my wife is my grandmother then I am her grandchild A And every time I think of it it nearly drives me wild A7 Bm For now I have become the strangest case you ever saw B7 E7 As the husband of my grandmother I am my own grandpa repeat #4 x2
