Hard Rocking Chair

print

Oh darling I can’t stay here
Oh darling I can’t stay here
For there’s nothing here but a hard rocking chair
Oh darling I can’t stay here

I wish I had her tied to my side
I wish I had her tied to my side
If I had her by my side
we’d run away and hide
I wish I had her tied to my side

I wish I was a birdie in the spring
I wish I was a birdie in the spring
Like a birdie in the spring
I could hear my darling sing
I wish I was a birdie in the spring

So darling you know you done me wrong
So darling you know you done me wrong
You done me wrong
I’m leaving you this song
So darling you know you done me wrong

I wish I was a little turtle dove
I wish I was a little turtle dove
Like a little turtle dove
I’d fly to the one I love
I wish I was a little turtle dove
