1. I’d like to tell you a story I’m not sure where to begin
That was just a thought between me and a friend
We were laughing and joking about a song I just released
He said you need to write a song about grits and collard greens.

2. So I sat with my paper and pen in my hand
I was tossing out ideas trying to come up with a plan
So I kept right on a thanking about grits and collard greens
I’m just a country boy, I’ve never heard of such an thing

Chorus

Grits and collard greens I’ve never heard before
But when I read those recipes I wanted dome for sure
A friend of mine suggested I need to write a song
So Grits and Collard green is how this song came along.

**Music Modulates**

3. So when I got my thoughts together, I wrote me out a plan
Of just how to cook this meal to make you shake my hand
You just take you out a frying pan and good size boiling pot
Add you cup of grits and big bowl of ham hocks.

4. Now that I have wrote this song I think it safe to say
I love my boiled grits wit a pan of seasoned greens
My granny now cooks them oh boy what a meal
Grits and collard greens we still have them now and then

Repeat 2nd Chorus Twice
Grits and Collard greens, I’ve learned to love this meal
I’m glad I found these recipes oh man what a deal
I’d to thank my friend for asking me to write this song
Grits and collard greens will never leave our home

Grits And Collard Greens Lyrics

Gregory E. Finch – Grits And Collard Greens Lyrics

1. I’d like to tell you a story I’m not sure where to begin
That was just a thought between me and a friend
We were laughing and joking about a song I just released
He said you need to write a song about grits and collard greens.

2. So I sat with my paper and pen in my hand
I was tossing out ideas trying to come up with a plan
So I kept right on a thanking about grits and collard greens
I’m just a country boy, I’ve never heard of such an thing

Chorus

Grits and collard greens I’ve never heard before
But when I read those recipes I wanted dome for sure
A friend of mine suggested I need to write a song
So Grits and Collard green is how this song came along.

**Music Modulates**

3. So when I got my thoughts together, I wrote me out a plan
Of just how to cook this meal to make you shake my hand
You just take you out a frying pan and good size boiling pot
Add you cup of grits and big bowl of ham hocks.

4. Now that I have wrote this song I think it safe to say
I love my boiled grits wit a pan of seasoned greens
My granny now cooks them oh boy what a meal
Grits and collard greens we still have them now and then

Repeat 2nd Chorus Twice
Grits and Collard greens, I’ve learned to love this meal
I’m glad I found these recipes oh man what a deal
I’d to thank my friend for asking me to write this song
Grits and collard greens will never leave our home
