[Verse:]
My great grandma’s name was Selma Drye
Everybody tell me I got her hazel eyes
It turn Carolina blue when I cry
And that’s alright with me

[Verse:]
She kept a 38 special and a can of snuff
In the pocket of her rip in case something came up
She grew up ragged and she grew up rough
The way she had been

(Chorus – part 1)
I know so much she’d be proud of me
‘Cause I’m the only apple on the tree
That didn’t hit the ground
And sit down in the mud

(Chorus – part 2)
But she’s up in heaven raising hell
And if I can stand up by myself
It’s ‘cause her gunpowder’s running through my blood
And when I die put me in the ground beside… Selma Drye

[Verse:]
Folks round town, they said she was neat
But never saw the woman I’ve seen
Never even touched a washing machine
And hung everything on the line

[Verse:]
Kept the peaches and her money in a can and jar
Never owned a tv or drove a car
That stuff don’t make you what you are
She used to say that all the time

(Chorus – part 1)
I know so much she’d be proud of me
‘Cause I’m the only apple on the tree
That didn’t hit the ground
And sit down in the mud

(Chorus – part 2)
But she’s up in heaven raising hell
And if I can stand up by myself
It’s ‘cause her gunpowder’s running through my blood
And when I die put me in the ground beside… Selma Drye

[Bridge:]
I still got her words of wisdom playing in my head
And her old beat-up Bible’s on my night stand by my bed

(Chorus – part 1)
I know so much she’d be proud of me
‘Cause I’m the only apple on the tree
That didn’t hit the ground
And sit down in the mud

(Chorus – part 2)
But she’s up in heaven raising hell
And if I can stand up by myself
It’s ‘cause her gunpowder’s running through my blood
And when I die put me in the ground beside…
When I die just put me in the ground beside… Selma Drye
