Lyrics:

There’s a blue rocking chair
Sittin’ in the sand
Weathered by the storms and well-oiled hands
It sways back and forth with the help of the winds
Seems to always be there, like an old trusted friend

I’ve read a lot of books
Wrote a few songs
Looked at my life where it’s goin’, where it’s gone
I’ve seen the world through a bus windshield, but nothing compares
To the way that I see it
To the way that I see it
To the way that I see it when I sit in that old blue chair

From that chair I’ve caught a few fish and some rays
And I’ve watched boats sail in and out of Cinnamon Bay
I let go of a lover that took a piece of my heart
I prayed many times for forgiveness and a brand new start

I’ve read a lot of books
Wrote a few songs
Looked at my life where it’s goin’, where it’s gone
I’ve seen the world through a bus windshield, but nothing compares
To the way that I see it
To the way that I see it
To the way that I see it when I sit in that old blue chair

That chair was my bed one New Year’s Night
When I passed out from too much Cruzan and Diet
And I woke up to a hundred mesquito bites, I swear
God I’m almost sittin’ right there
In that old blue chair

There’s a blue rockin chair
Sittin’ in the sand
Weathered by the storms… and well-oiled hands
