: : Hi, I was wondering what is meant by the phrase "rockin' chair money." Hank Williams took it as the name of one of his songs.

: Could be that now he is done "totin a gun" and wants to settle down.
: Or maybe he just wants his baby love to join him in some rockin and a rollin'.

: "I'll soon get my big check, baby
: And then we'll have some fun
: This rockin' chair money, honey
: Is better than totin' a gun
: Cause I love to rock, yeah rock
: Baby, rock, let's rock on down the line"

Older individuals are often depicted as sitting in rocking chairs. Therefore, it could mean retirement money.
