Red Rocking Chair

Red Rocking Chair

No, I ain’t got no use
For my red rocking chair,
I ain’t got no sugar baby now,
No, I ain’t got no sugar baby now.

Some old rounder come along
Took my sugar babe and gone,
And I ain’t got no sugar baby now,
No, I ain’t got no sugar baby now.

I gave her every cent I made
And I laid her in the shade,
And I ain’t got no sugar baby now,
No, I ain’t got no sugar baby now.

And it’s who’ll call you honey
It’s who’ll sing this song?
Who’ll rock the cradle when I’m gone?
And it’s who’ll rock the cradle when I’m gone?

Oh, I ain’t got no use
For your red apple juice,
I’m living on your corn squeezings now,
Yes I’m living on your corn squeezings now.

Instruction on how to play this song can be found in Wayne Erbsen’s books: Bluegrass Jamming on Fiddle, Bluegrass Jamming on Mandolin and Bluegrass Jamming on Banjo.
