Rocking Chair Gina Jeffreys
Momma warned, don't you go up there.
To the house on the hill, no don't you dare,
It's old man Drew's, and he's gone mad.
There's something strange, and something bad.
They say he caught his wife in bed .
With a stranger, just six months wed.
And she laughed at him, said she didn't care.
And sat and rocked, in her rocking chair.
Rocking chair, just keeps on rocking.
Rocking chair, rocking all night long.
Through the dark here the bare boards creaking.
Rocking chair, rocking on.
And on that night so the story tells.
He swore that he'd see her in hell.
And as she sat there in that chair.
He strangled her with her long black hair.
Now they say her spirit still lives on.
To remind Ol' Drew of what he's done.
And every night up on that hill.
There's an empty chair that's rocking still.
