Cluck Old Hen

Album: They Lie In Wait
(Traditional)

My old hen’s a good old hen
She lays eggs for the railroad men
Sometimes one, sometimes two
Sometimes enough for the whole damn crew

Cluck old hen, cluck and sing
Ain’t laid an egg since way last spring
Cluck old hen, cluck and squall
Ain’t laid an egg since way last fall

My old hen got a wooden leg
The best old hen that never laid an egg
Laid more eggs than any hen around the barn
Another drink of whiskey won’t do me no harm

Cluck old hen, cluck and sing
Ain’t laid an egg since way last spring
Cluck old hen, cluck and squall
Ain’t laid an egg since way last fall

Cluck old hen when I tell you
Cluck old hen or I’m gonna sell you
Last time she cackled, she cackled in the lot
The next time she cackled, she cackled in the pot

Cluck old hen, cluck and sing
Ain’t laid an egg since way last spring
Cluck old hen, cluck and squall
Ain’t laid an egg since way last fall
