lyrics

Rocking back and forth in my rocking chair,
winter’s coming soon but I don’t care
Wrapped up my flannel long underwear,
Rockin’ back and forth in my rockin’ chair

Fourty below when the sun comes up,
got a 5th of whiskey in my cup
Raccoon’s have made a home in the seat of my car
I don’t mind a little bit of sunshine,
rather have a whole lot of moonshine
I ain’t going anywhere, Rocking in my Rocking Chair

The old back Fourty has gone to seed,
everything I own is all I need
Won first prize for whittling at the county fair
The weather brings my daily news,
got dandelions growing out of my shoes
I ain’t going anywhere, Rocking in my Rocking Chair

Rocking back and forth in my rocking chair,
down on my luck but I don’t care
Crow’s have made a big nest in my hair,
Rockin’ back and forth in my rocking chair

Fourty above when the sun gets high,
got a pail of of peat just to keep me dry
neighbours don’t do nothing but stop and stare
Teeth are stained and my socks are ripe,
got home grown tobacco in a corn cob pipe
I ain’t going anywhere, Rocking in my Rocking Chair

Fourty years later and I haven’t moved,
got nowhere to be and nothing to prove
Hairy, stinky and mean as a Grizzly bear
Got no worries about putting down roots,
on account of the moss growing on my boots
I ain’t going anywhere, Rocking in my Rocking Chair

Rockin’ back and forth in my rocking chair,
no money in my pocket but I don’t care
long tall tales and time to spare,
Rockin’ back and forth in my rocking chair

Fourty minutes until the sun goes down,
wheels in my head are spinning around
Everyone’s welcome to join me if they dare
I’m cantankerous, gnarled, ornery and lazy,
folks in town just call me crazy
I ain’t going anywhere, Rocking in my Rocking Chair

Rockin’ back and forth in my rocking chair,
Grim Reaper’s coming soon but I don’t care
Bury me with holes in my underwear,
Rockin’ back and forth in my rockin’ chair
