Rockin' Chair  The Band

[Am/C] [C] [F]Hang around, [Dm]Willie Boy,[Dm/C]
[Bb] Don't you raise the sails[C] anymore.
bass riff:
--Play this from the 8th fret
on the A string and then down
F/(bass riff) Dm Dm/C G/B
It's for sure, I've spent my whole life at sea
And I'm [Bb]pushin' age [Dm/A]seventy thre[G]e;
Now there's [Eb]only one [Eb/D]place that was [C]meant for me:
guitar finger picking:
|C|D|E| --and then quick the F chord below
[F]Oh,[Dm7] to be [Dm/C]home agai[Bb]n,
Down in [F]old Vir[C]ginny,
[F] With[Dm] my [F]very best [Bb]friend,
They call him [F]Ragtime Willie.
We're gonna so[Dm]othe a[Dm/C]way the [Bb]rest of our years,
We'[F]re gonna pu[Dm]t a[Dm/C]way all of[Bb] our tears,
That [Dm]big Rockin' Chair won't [G7]go nowhere.[C7]

Mandolin finger picking:
third verse end:
Mandolin finger picking:
The entire song ends up with:
Mandolin finger picking:
Slow down, Willie Boy,
Your heart's gonna give right out on you
It's true, and I believe I know what we should do.
Turn the stern and point to shore,
The seven seas won't carry us no more.
Oh, to be home again,
Down in old Virginny,
With my very best friend,
They call him Ragtime Willie.
I can't wait to sniff that air,
Dip'n snuff, I won't have no care,
That big Rockin' Chair won't go nowhere.
Hear the sound, Willie Boy,
The Flyin' Dutchman's on the reef.
It's my belief
We've used up all our time,
This hill's to steep to climb,
And the days that remain ain't worth a dime.
Oh, to be home again,
Down in old Virginny,
With my very best friend,
They call him Ragtime Willie.
Would-a-been nice just t'see the folks,
listen once again to the stale jokes,
That big Rockin' Chair won't go nowhere.
[F]I can hear some[Dm]thing calling [F]on me[Bb]
And you know [C]where I wanna be
[F]Oh W[Dm]illie, ca[F]n't you hear that sound[Bb]
Down In Old Vi[F]rginny[C]
I [F]just wanna get [Dm]my feet back on t[F]he ground[Bb]
Down In Old Vi[F]rginn[C]y
And I'd love [F]to see my [Dm]very best[F] friend[Bb]
They call him Ragtime W[F]illie[C]
I [F]believe old[Dm] Ro[F]ckin' Chair's got me[Bb]
