Rockin' Chair

Lyrics: Hoagy Carmichael
Music: Hoagy Carmichael

Performed by Jerry Garcia with David Grisman. Not to be confused with "Red Rocking Chair" also performed by Garcia/Grisman.

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
Ain't goin' nowhere
Just sitting here [grabbing?]
At them flies round this old rockin' chair

My dear old aunt Harriet
Up in heaven she be
Send down sweet chariot
For the end of these troubles I see

Old rockin' chair
Judgement day is near
I'm chained to that old rockin' chair

[repeat all above]

Chained to that old rockin' chair
