Cluck Old Hen 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's a good old hen She lays eggs for the railroad men. Sometimes one, sometimes two Sometimes enough for the whole damn crew. Sometimes nine, sometimes ten That's enough eggs for the railroad men. My old hen, she won't do She lays eggs and taters too. The old hen she's raised on a farm Now she's in the new ground diggin' up corn. The first time she cackled, she cackled a lot Next time she cackled, cackled in the pot. Recorded by Tom Ashley, Frank Profitt Note: one of the standard fiddle virtuoso pieces: chicken imitations were highly appreciated. RG RG
