      Rockin' Chair
Words & Music by Hoagy Carmichael
Recorded by The Mills Brothers, 1932


D   D9   D9sus4 D9   D7/9    G    G6         Gm7 Edim
Ol' rock - in' chair's got me,   my cane by my side;

D    F#m    B7       E7                A7   Edim
Fetch me that gin, son, 'fore I tan your hide.

Bm   F#7            Bm7   F#7 Bm7 C#7 F#7
Can't get from this cabin,    go no where

E7 Bm7-5          E7
Just sit me here grabbin'

       A7             A7+5      D
At the flies 'round my rockin' chair.


Bridge:

D7    Fdim D9   D7       D7      Fdim D9 D7
My dear old Aunt Harriet -- in Hea - ven she be --

C#7          F#m    B7         E7          Bm7-5      A7 E7 A7
Send me sweet chariot,   for the end of that trouble I see.


D   D9   D9sus4 D9 D7/9    G         G6    Gm7 Edim
Ol' rock - in' chair gets it; judgment day is here,

D    F#m Bm7 G Gdim Edim   D
Chained to my old rock - in' chair.

For standards a good place to look is The Guitar Guy's site. (Though the chords are not always good) and he does have a version of Rockin' Chair.

Thanks, Intrepid Scofflaw...I like all of Hoagy's stuff and this is a favorite. And as I'm hobbling around on a cane for a while, this will be a good time to try and learn it. That Redbone song keeps going around in my head (...would go for nought, if I got caught, wi/out my cane).
