Rockin' Chair

Rockin' Chair

Death Cab for Cutie

Hang around Willy Boy
Don't you raise the sails anymore
It's for sure
That I spent my whole life at sea
And I'm pushin' age 73
And there's only one place that was meant for me

Oh to be home again
Down in old Virginny
With my very best friend
They call him Ragtime Billy
We're gonna sooth away the rest of our years
We're gonna put away all of our tears
That big rockin' chair won't go nowhere

Slow down Willy Boy
Your hearts gonna give right out on you
It's true
And I believe I know what I 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 Billy
I can't wait to sniff that air
Dip and snuff I won't have no care
That big rockin' chair won't go nowhere

Hear the sound Willy Boy
The Flyin' Dutchman's on the reef
It's my belief
That we've used up all of our time
And the surf's to steep to climb
And the days that we made are worth the time

Oh to be home again
Down in old Virginny
With my very best friend
They call him Ragtime Billy
Would have been nice just to see the folks
Missing once again to the stale jokes
That big rockin' chair won't go nowhere

Oh to be home again
Oh to be home again
Oh to be home again
Oh to be home again
