Rockin' Chair

This song is by Tom Waits and appears on the Compilation album The Early Years, Vol. 1 (1991).

Original video
Well, I'm sittin' right here in my rockin' chair
Runnin' my fingers right through my hair
Fire is a-flickerin' with a yellow and gold
Makin' me quiver in the snowy cold
I got a lazy old woman, screamin' 'bout my money
Man, she took every cent and she didn't leave me any

Times were never this good
Got a fly for food
Got no woman to spend my money
The lil' blooey done take all my money

So I'm sittin' right here in my rockin' chair
Runnin' my fingers right through my hair
Spider caught the fly in his web
Do believe that he might be dead

Times were never this good
Got a fly for food
Got no woman to spend my money
The lil' blooey done take all my money

So I'm sittin' and I'm sittin'
And I'm sittin' right here in my rockin' chair
Watchin' my old dog losing his hair
