about

A somber song about getting old. First released in 1929.

lyrics

Old rockin' chair's got me,
Cane by my side.
Fetch me that gin, son,
Before I tan your hide.

I can't get from this cabin.
I'm going nowhere.
Just sit me here grabbin',
at the flies 'round this rocking chair.

My dear old Aunt Harriet,
In Heaven, she be.
Oh, send me, sweet chariot,
For the end of the trouble I see.

Old rockin' chair's got me,
And Judgement Day is near.
I know 'cause I'm,
Chained to my old rockin' chair.

Old rockin' chair's got me,
And Judgement Day is near.
I know 'cause I'm,
Chained to my old rockin' chair.

Green Tie Jazz Band Fremont, California

Traditional Jazz is an important part of American history and cullture. Jazz and the Roaring Twenties have influenced the modern American's way of life in a countless number of ways. We are here to keep this music alive!
We hope to bring a fresh take on old standards all the while staying true to the ways of Armstrong, Teagarden, Kid Ory, Beiderbecke, and the like.
