If That Chair Could Talk (Rachel Proctor)

Imitation leather, Pink Naugahyde, Two Inch tear down the left-hand side, Came from my daddy's pocketknife, That wasn't my fault Moved along with us everywhere we went, No matter where we lived it always fit in, Kinda like our next of kin, If that chair could talk My little brother, Billy, broke his left hand Jumpin' off the arm like superman With my grandma's old red afghan tied around his neck It's where at least a thousand books were read, Our Siamese cat made her bed It ever heard "And I thee wed" When sister married in the living room To that Phillips boy from just down the block If that chair could talk Mama bought it in a yard sale in '65 It was daddy's favorite chair after he retired Survived all of that and a kitched fire, Smoke stains wiped right off It's where I spent a million hours talking on the phone It was my favorite place to polish my toes Something Mama didn't know, If that chair could talk From Leave it to Beaver to the Brady Bunch Chicken Noodle Soup and Captain Crunch TV Dinners to Sunday lunch, and movies late at night Brother tippin' me backwards until I screamed He'd get in trouble for bein' so mean And when he told Mama that he'd joined the Marines It's where she sat down in shock The good, the bad, it's seen it all If that chair could talk It caught my tears, Head me up when I felt bad, It called my fears, It's good to keep a friend like that. It hid the ice cream money for hot summer days, Listened while I practed for my high school play, And all the times it heard me pray, When things were going rough. And it's where Bobby Baker gave me my first kiss, Mama came in and nearly had a fit, There's footprints of my life all over it, We've been through a lot. The good, the bad, it's seen it all, If that chair could talk. Imitation leather, pink Naugahyde Two inch tear down the left-hand side
