Momma's Rocking Chair (country)

Lyrics
We sat there in the front yard 'til Bobby pulled up
To load up the house in a rented U-Haul truck
We didn't wanna go inside 'cause we knew she wasn't here
All the lives she touched were on the verge of tears

Momma always thought ahead, she made out a list
Of all the things handed down to each of us kids
My sister's voice broke as she read it out loud
I said there's one thing missing that momma left out

It's right there on the front porch
The only thing I need
I drove across three states
And it means the world to me
Oh, just to hear it squeaking in the evening air
It's where she lifted us kids in prayer
Please, give me momma's rocking chair

I know the paint is faded and it's starting to chip
It's the only place she would sit when she'd want to knit
It's where I sat on her lap for the stories that she'd read
When I was late it's where she'd be waiting for me

It's right there on the front porch
The only thing I need
I drove across three states
And it means the world to me
Oh, just to hear it squeaking in the evening air
It's where she lifted us kids in prayer
Give me momma's rocking chair

Now, Becky was the only girl, she got momma's jewels
Bobby's the mechanic, he got daddy's tools
But when it comes to things that can't be measured
I walked away with the only treasure

Now, it's right there on my front porch
The only thing I need
I drove across three states
And it means the world to me
Oh, I love to hear it squeaking in the evening air
And now it's where I offer up my prayers
Sometimes I close my eyes and she's right there
In my momma's rocking chair
Oh, momma's rocking chair
