Farm Out West G G7 Oh I had a farm out west C G This farm it was the best! G A7 D7 I had a wall-eyed steer with freckles and brown hair. G G7 I had a long-legged Shanghai rooster C G With a wart on his left ear G D7 G C C Now he's died and done gone climbed the golden stair Refrain: C Oh his bill was like a toothpick G And his comb was like an axe A7 D7 He has tombstone that's a sugar hogshead sta-a-ave G G7 All the hens they've gone on strike, C G They haven't laid since Saturday night G D7 G C G Cause they're weeping on my Shanghai rooster's grave. No more he'll come home late About the hour of half-past eight Singin' "cock-a-doodle-doo" and a "Good-bye, Kate" No more he'll dodge those red bricks Thrown at some old tabby cat Nor flirt with Murphy's pullets at the gate. Oh no more he'll crow again Throw his eye at some old hen He was a masher and his middle name was Da-a-ave All the hens they've gone on strike, They haven't laid since Saturday night Cause they're weeping on my Shanghai rooster's grave.
