Our middle school orchestra performed it once lol
Really? :o :)

That's a really good driving sound, isn't it? And some great guitar work, too.

Yep! It was a fun rock concert style performance, Paul McCartney's Live and Let Die was another that I remember we performed. Also the Beatles' All Together Now \.

Here's my favorite version of Rockin' Chair. It's by Alvino Rey and features The King Sisters.

Was watching Dick Cavett and he sang what he remembered of this song. What he heard was a different version, I think, as he quoted slightly different lyrics. This was actually written by Kipling and turned into this 1928 song, this version sung by Frank Crumit. I Learned About Women from Her.
