Old rockin' chair's got me, my 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 trouble I see Old rockin' chair gets it--Judgement Day is here Chained to my rockin' chair Old rockin' chair's got me, son, (rocking chair got you, father) My cane by my side, (Yes, your cane by your side) Now fetch me a little gin, son (ain't got no gin, father) What? 'Fore I tan your hide, now, (you're gonna tan my hide) You know I can't get from this old cabin (What cabin? Joking) I ain't goin' nowhere (Why ain't you goin' nowhere?) Just sittin' me here grabbin' (grabbin') At the flies round this old rockin' chair (rockin' chair) Now you remember dear old aunt Harriet (aunt Harriet) How long in Heaven she be? (She's up in Heaven) Send me down, send me down, sweet (sweet chariot) chariot End of this trouble I see (I see, daddy) Old rockin' chair gets it, son (rocking chair get it, father) Judgement Day is here too (your Judgement Day is here) Chained to my rockin', old rockin' chair
