The Lyrics

Borrowing the idea from Porfle!
Grandpa on The Waltons was played by Will Geer
Tellin' stories that the family did believe
But the charge up San Juan Hill was simply not true
Mule tendin' was all the action he did see
He loved to drink too much of the "recipe"
As far as the Baldwin ladies go
Esther gave the Good Book condemnation, but
Zebulon in the mill a jar did stow
Fishing and the mountain was his glory
Loved to eat chicken as a snack
Gave advice to everyone in the family
Worked the mill which almost broke his back

Everyone admired Grandpa
"You old fool!" Grandma used to yell
See him takin' walks in nature
Plantin' trees and plants
And tendin' then so well
Waltons not a family without Grandpa,
Patriarch always had their backs
But when the house burnt couldn't help but wonder:
Was it the space heater in the bathroom
That started fire, turned the house all black?
What were the facts?

John Boy's pipe, but Grandpa took the flak!

He died and then came the end of fables
6' 2, 230, he was big
An empty seat at the table
Memories of the jug he held
Once in a while, he used to take a swig
He had a lot of
Friends and neighbors
Spent time on the mountain by himself
Loved to hunt
fish, and pick the berries
Always offered to his grandchildren all his help...

R.I.P. Zebulon Walton

I just got through watching "The Godfather Part II" again, and now here's "The Grandfather Part II"!

That's one thing "Little House on the Prairie" didn't have- Grandpa Walton! Instead, they had Mr. Edwards played brilliantly by Victor French!
