Rockin' Chair

(Hoagy Carmichael)

Nat Gonella & his Trumpet

Old rockin' chair's got me, cane by my side
Fetch me that gin, son, 'fore I tan your hide
Can't get from this cabin, goin' nowhere
Just set me here grabbin' at the flies round this rockin' chair

My dear old aunt Harriet, in Heaven she be
Send me sweet chariot, for the end of the troubles I see
Old rockin' chair gets me, Judgement Day is here
I'm chained to my rockin' chair
