  • (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
  • Selma Drye…
