GET ME A ROCKING CHAIR



      The phrase, "Get Me a Rocking Chair",
is an old blues standard... and that phrase is about the only thing I kept in the lyrics of the song.
         I was already using a riff on the base strings of my Stratocaster when I played the song. Terry Lucenti, lead guitar player of John Rock and the Batch, strengthened the bass riff, and added his leads.
         As I say, I changed all the words and the band howled as I sang it. What a ball! The crowd loved it. And (in all humility) we rocked the joint, as per usual. 

Some of my favourite words from the song:

"I'll be Mr Wrong for you, sweetheart,
  And you can be Mrs Right!"
