      D
I was down in the hen house

And on me knees
                      D
I thought I heard the chicken sneeze

It was only the rooster saying his prayers
                          D
Thanking the Lord for the Hens upstairs

[Verse 1]

We had some chickens no eggs would they lay

We had some chickens no eggs would they lay
                 G                   D
O' the wife said honey we're loosing money oh yeah
             A                           D   G  D
Because them chickens no eggs would they lay
