Rocking Alone In An Old Rocking Chair
(Bob Miller - © 1932 The Crawford Music Corporation)


Sitting alone in an old rocking chair
I saw an old mother with silvery hair
She seemed so neglected by those who should care
Rocking alone in an old rocking chair

Her hands were all callused and wrinkled and old
A life of hard work was the story they told
I thought of the angels as I saw her there
Rocking alone in an old rocking chair

Bless her old heart, do you think she’d complain
Though life has been bitter she’d live it again
And carry the cross that is more than her share
Rocking alone in an old rocking chair

It wouldn’t take much to gladden her heart
Just some small remembrance on somebody’s part
A letter would brighten her empty life there
Rocking alone in an old rocking chair
