'I can hear something calling on me
And you know where I want to be'.

Richard Manuel in
'Rockin' Chair'(oorspronkelijke opname werd verwijderd van YouYube) vertolkt tijdens de Festival Express in 1970.

Rockin' Chair  The Band

Hang around, Willie Boy
Don't you raise the sails anymore
It's for sure, I've spent my whole life at sea
And I'm pushin' age seventy three
Now 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 Willie
We're gonna soothe 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, 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

I can hear something calling on me
And you know where I want to be
Oh Willie don't you hear that sound
Oh to be home again down in old Virginny
I just want to get my feet back on the ground
Oh to be home again down in old Virginny
I'd love to see my very best friend
They call him Rag-time Willie
I believe old rockin chair's got me
Oh to be home again
