Old rock - in' chair's got me,  Cane by my side,
Fetch me that gin, son, 'fore I tan your hide,
Can't get from this ca - bin, goin' no - where,
Just sit me here grab - bin' at the flies 'round this rock - in' chair.
My dear old Aunt Har - ri - et,  In hea - ven she be,
Send me sweet char - ri - ot,  For the end of the trou - ble I see,
Old rock - in' chair's gets it,  Judge - ment day is here,
Chained to my rock - in' chair.
