Liner Notes: 

This is pretty much autobiographical. My Granny always told me that one day I'd find my man because every skillet has a lid.


Skillet and Lid
© 2020 Cindy Prince

Granny made her cornbread in an iron skillet
I can almost taste it now
With a little advice and some butter
Made straight from her gentle old cow

When I was fed up with lookin' for a man
She'd always tell me not to fret
"There's someone out there for you
He just ain't found you yet

Everybody's got a mate
Just like a skillet's got a lid
Hon you got plenty of time
Why you are just a kid
There's somebody out there
Just you wait and see
In no time at all
He'd be marryin' me

Just like Granny said
I met you and now we're wed

Now we're both eatin' Granny's cornbread
Drinkin' buttermilk from a glass
She was right about a skillet and lid
What she said has come to pass

Repeat chorus

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

That's a cool metaphor for the 'right fit'. Glad you found yours and glad I found mine!

I really love this metaphor and the wonderful nostalgic visual and sensory images that you create in this sweet song!

Your grandmother's voice really speaks loudly here and it's memorable! It's such a positive lyric with good advice. I'd be really fun to hear it!
