ROCKING ALONE IN AN OLD ROCKING CHAIR 
Hank Snow
Intro: C-G-C

 C                       G
Sitting alone in an old rockin' chair 
                           C
I saw an old mother with silvery hair 
                            F               Dm
She seemed so neglected by those who should care 
  G                               C
Rockin' alone in an old rockin' chair 

                              G
Her hands were calloused and wrinkled and old 
                              C
A life of hard work was the story they told 
                           F          Dm
And I thought of angels as I saw her there 
  G                              C
Rockin' alone in an old rockin' chair 

                             G
Bless her old heart do you think she'd complain 
                                    C
Though life has been bitter she'd live it again 
                              F             Dm
And carry that cross that is more than her share 
  G                               C
Rockin' alone in an old rockin' chair 

Instrumental    G-C--D
Advance to D
 D                          A
It wouldn't take much to gladden her heart 
                                 D  
Just some small remembrance of somebody's part 
                              G          Em
A letter would brighten her empty life there 
  A                               D
Rockin' alone in an old rockin' chair 

D                        A
I know some youngsters in an orphan's home 
                                  D
Who'd think they owned heaven if she was their own 
                            G            Em
They'd never be willing to let her sit there 
 A                                D
Rockin' alone in an old rockin' chair 

D                     A
I look at her and I think what a shame 
                              D
The ones who forgot her she loves just the same 
                         G           Em
And I think of angels as I see her there 
  A                              D
Rockin' alone in an old rockin' chair


  A                              D
Rockin' alone in an old rockin' chair
