Rockin' Chair


by John Lee Hooker
recording 1989

I ain't gonna be, I ain't gonna be, babe, your fool no more
I ain't gonna be, be, no, no, I ain't gonna be, be, your fool no more
I'm so tired, so tired, babe, being your slave, both night and day

I'm sittin' here rockin', rockin' rockin' rockin'
Rockin' these blues away, tryin' so hard
I'm tryin' so hard, so hard rock these blues away,
in my rockin' chair, my old time rockin' chair, rockin' chair
Lord, have mercy

I believe, I believe, my woman seeing someone else
I believe, I believe, I believe, she's seeing someone else
All I can do, all I can do, all I can do, rock in my old time rockin' chair
Have mercy!
Rockin', rockin', rockin', rockin', rockin' in' these blues away
I tried so hard, tried, tried, tried, rock these blues out of my mind

All my friends tell me, tell me, I just waste my tears on you
All my friends tell me, tell, tell me, tell me, tell me, I just waste my tears on you
No, no, no, no, no, no
Gonna keep on trying, keep on try, tryin' to rock these blues away

Rock these blues away
Rock me on, hmm, hmm
hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm
Rock these blues, rock these blues away from me
