Grinnin’ in Your Face

cd cover: thunders mouth by Scott AinslieSon House

Don’t you mind people grinnin’ in your face.
Don’t mind people grinnin’ in your face, O Lord,
Just bear this in mind, a true friend is hard to find.
Don’t you mind people grinnin’ in your face.

They’ll jump you up and down.
They’ll carry you all around and ‘round.
Just as soon as your back is turned,
they’ll be tryin’ to cut you down.
But just bear this in mind, a true friend is hard to find.

Don’t you mind people grinnin’ in your face…

Your mother, she’ll talk about you.
Your brothers and your sisters, too.
Yes, don’t care how you’re trying to live,
They’ll talk about you still.
But just bear this in mind, a true friend is hard to find.

Don’t you mind people grinnin’ in your face….

From Son House’s old age, this tune has always held me in it’s headlights.
