Grinnin’ In Your Face


Don’t you mind
People grinnin’ in your face
Don’t mind people
Grinnin’ in your face

You 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
Would talk about you
Your own sisters
And your brothers too
They just don’t care
How you’re tryin’ to live
They’ll talk about you still

Yes, but bear, ooh, this in mind
A true friend is hard to find
Don’t you mind people
Grinnin’ in your face
Don’t you mind people
Grinnin’ in your face
Don’t you mind people
Grinnin’ in your face

Oh, just bear, ooh this in mind
A true friend is hard to find
Don’t you mind
People grinnin’ in your face

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
Don’t mind people
Grinnin’ in your face
Don’t mind people
Grinnin’ in your face
Oh, Lord

And just bear this in mind
A true friend is hard to find
Don’t you mind
People grinnin’ in your face

– Son House, 1965
