A Lighter Side of Country, III

And for our third installment, ha ha ha, I give you Ghost Chickens in the Sky. Children in particular really enjoy this song.

GHOST CHICKENS IN THE SKY

To the tune of  “Ghost Riders in the Sky”

*Tremolo for first verse – – Am – –

[Am] A chicken Farmer went out, one [C] dark and windy day

And [Am] by the coop he rested as he [C] went along his way

When [Am] all at once a rotten egg, hit him in the eye

It [F] was the sight he dreaded….[Stop – N.C.]

Ghost Chickens in the [Am – begin strumming] sky!

 

Squawk [C] Cluck!  Squawk [Am] Cluck!

Squawk [C] Cluck!  Squawk [Am] Cluck!

[F] Ghost… Chick-ens in…. the [Am] sky….!

 

This [Am] farmer had these chickens, since [C] he was twenty four

[Am] Working for the Colonel for [C] thirty years or more

[Am] Killing all these chickens and sending them to fry

And [F] now they want revenge…..….[Stop – N.C.]

Ghost Chickens in the [Am] sky!

 

Squawk [C] Cluck!  Squawk [Am] Cluck!

Squawk [C] Cluck!  Squawk [Am] Cluck!

[F] Ghost… Chick-ens in…. the [Am] sky….!

 

[Am] Their beaks were black and shining, their [C] eyes were burning red

[Am] They had no meat or feathers, these [C] chickens they were dead

[Am] They picked the farmer up and he died by the claw

They [F] cooked him extra crispy…..[Stop – N.C.]

And ate him with cole-[Am]slaw!

 

Squawk [C] Cluck!  Squawk [Am] Cluck!

Squawk [C] Cluck!  Squawk [Am] Cluck!

[F] Ghost… Chick-ens in…. the [Am] sky….!
