Hank Williams Jr. – The Chair That Rocked Us All lyrics

I called you all together for in just an hour or two

There'll be an auction on the square that just might int'rest you

It's the first time I've seen most of you since mama passed away

And that old chair that rocked us all will be auctioned off today

Well I guess you know of course I lost the farm that daddy sweated all his life to keep

And even worked sometimes by moonlight when all of us kids were sound to asleep

Now I guess we were all just too busy fulfilling each one's worldly dreams

To even care when they took the old chair along with all the other things

You know if you could capture all the love that we found in that old chair

Why you could wipe out all the hatred in this old world

And you'd still have a lotta love to spare

Now all I ask and it's not too much is just go with me down to the square

And let's take a look among all the other things at mama's old rocking chair

And look at all the teeth marks put there when we were small

Just go with me for one last look at the chair that rocked us all
