Hey Marvin, thank you for sharing your songs with us.
I can relate to this one pretty good - being a grandpa myself with three kids living close to town but showing up only once in a while. But other as in your song I’m busy enough by myself so that it doesn’t hurt me that much. The melody is nice and fits well, however I have the feeling I have heard it before many times.
But all in all a nice song - good luck!

Granddad’s Birthday

Written by Marvin Adcock

Today was granddad’s birthday - he knew they’d be there
So he got up early - put on his best, combed his hair
Skipped his daily walk to the cafe - to have coffee with the boys
Cause ever since grandma passed away - his only other joy’s
When they come

He moved his porch chair to the sidewalk - so he could better see the street
He always naps at one o’clock - but today he didn’t sleep
He spent the afternoon by the telephone - so he could answer when they called
To let ‘em know he’s always home - any time’ll work at all
When they come

He’s got three grown kids and two of them - live within ten miles
But none of them have visited - him in quite awhile
Nothin’ beats the feelin’ he gets - holdin’ a grand child
Today was his birthday - he couldn’t wait for them to come

He washed up his supper dishes - but left the cake uncut
So he could have dessert with - them when they showed up
He waited on the front porch - ‘til it got to dark to see
And left a note on the front door - be sure to wake me
When you come

He’s got three grown kids and two of them - live within ten miles
But none of them have visited - him in quite awhile
Nothin’ beats the feelin’ he gets - holdin’ a grand child
Today was his birthday - he couldn’t wait for them to come

He said “Hon they’ve all got busy lives
To young to know how fast time flies”
As he kissed the picture of his bride goodnight

He’s got three grown kids and two of them - live within ten miles
But none of them have visited - him in quite awhile
Nothin’ beats the feelin’ he gets - holdin’ a grand child
Today was his birthday - he couldn’t wait for them to come

Today was granddad’s birthday
