ROCKING ALONE IN AN OLD ROCKING CHAIR   Eddy Arnold 
Written by Bob Miller 

Chorded by Gary W, 25 Nov 2006 
Note: Shown two ways. Without capo and with capo on 2nd fret. 

No Capo 
Intro: Follow pattern of last line in first verse* 

[E] Sitting alone in an [B] old rockin' [B7] chair 
I saw an old mother with [E] silvery hair 
She seemed so neglected by [A] those who should [F#m] care 
*[B] Rockin' alone in an [B7] old rockin' [E] chair 

[E] Her hands were caloused, [B] wrinkled and [B7] old 
A life of hard work was the [E] story they told 
And I've thought of angels as [A] I saw her [F#m] there 
[B] Rockin' alone in an [B7] old rockin' [E] chair 

Instrumental: Same as intro* 

[E] Bless her old heart do you [B] think she'd com [B7] plain 
Though life has been bitter she'd [E] live it again 
And carry the cross that is [A] more than her [F#m] share 
[B] Rockin' alone in an [B7] old rockin' [E] chair 

[E] It wouldn't take much to [B] gladden her [B7] heart 
Just some small remembrance on [E] somebody's part 
A letter would brighten her [A] empty life [F#m] there 
[B] Rockin' alone in an [B7] old rockin' [E] chair 

Instrumental: Same as intro* 

[E] I know some kids in an [B] orphan's [B7] home 
Who think they owned heaven if [E] she was their own 
They'd never be willing to [A] let her sit [F#m] there 
[B] Rockin' alone in an [B7] old rockin' [E] chair 

[E] I look at her and I [B] think what a [B7] shame 
The ones who forgot her she [E] loves just the same 
And I think of angels as [A] I see her [F#m] there 
[B] Rockin' alone in an [B7] old rockin' [E] chair
