Crow Black Chicken

Ry Cooder

Well, I went on the mountain 
And I gave my horn a blow 
Thought I heard some purty gal say 
"Yonder come my beau" 

Crow black chicken and crow for a day 
Crow black chicken and fly away 
Crow black chicken and-a 
I like chicken pie 

Well, the hardest work that ever I done 
Is plowin' a field of rye 
The easiest work that ever I done 
Was eatin' chicken pie 

Chicken crow for midnight 
And chicken crow for a day 
Along come an owl, Lord, have mercy 
And stole my chicken away
