Grinnin' In Your Face

Lyrics: Son House
Music: Son House

A Son House song covered by Robert Hunter in 1979-80.

Chorus
Don't you mind people grinnin' in your face
Don't mind people grinnin' in your face
Just bear this in mind
A true friend is hard to find
Don't you mind people grinnin' in your face

You know your mother will talk about you
Your sisters and brothers too
Yes, don't care how you're trying to live
They'll talk about you still
Yes, but bear this in mind
A true friend is hard to find
Don't you mind people grinnin' in your face

[chorus]

You know they'll jump you up and down
They'll carry you all round and round
Just as soon as your back is turned
They'll be tryin' to crush you down
Yes, but bear this in mind
A true friend is hard to find
Don't you mind people grinnin' in your face

[chorus]
