Everyone's bedded on down,
There's enough in the bottle
for just one more round;
So it's into the parlour,
the lamp's turned down low,
Where once burned a fire
only warm embers glow;
I sit myself down for the night,
To a sleepy old rocking chair ride.

So it's off I go into the night,
There's so much to see as I silently glide;
As memories once lost are relived again,
A child's question answered,
oh where have I been,
When I needed a warm place to hide,
On a sleepy old rocking chair ride.

Just as before trouble leaves by the door,
You know it's stepping outside,
it's falling behind,
My mind gets away to a rocking chair ride.

Out in the soft coloured rain,
That bay bridge no more than an hour away;
And with morning approaching
I'm headed for home.
I open my eyes, once again I'm alone;
Can't imagine just what I might find,
On a sleepy old rocking chair ride.

Everyone's bedded on down,
There's enough in the bottle
for just one more round;
So it's into the parlour,
the lamp's turned down low,
Where once burned a fire
only warm embers glow;
I sit myself down for the night,
To a sleepy old rocking chair ride.
