Chickenman

This song is by Indigo Girls and appears on the live album 1200 Curfews (1995).

i am an only child
born of the wild
riddled to spend my time
defending my land

you are my only one
born in the sun
riddled to spend your time
defending my plan

dead dog on the highway
median cats are growling at me
i turn my lights on brighter
counting through the night ride
and it's one more life for the taker
chickenman
one more song for the maker
chickenman

on the road to Athens
i saw a dead deer on the highway
i slipped into a desert
five prairie dogs and a rabbit

i was running down on queen street
i saw a woman on the sidewalk
she was beaten by a stranger
danger danger danger

nd it's one more life for the taker
chickenman chicken-man chickenman
hold my hand
one more life for the maker
hold my hand
chickenman

i was on the road to Austin
i met a man on the highway
he sold me junk and conversation
he was wise and dirty from the weather
i said darkness into darkness
all the carnage of my journeys
makes it hard to be living
he said it's a long road to be forgiven

and one more life for the taker
chickenman chickenman chickenman
hold my hand
one more song for the maker
chickenman chickenman chickenman
hold my hand

i am an only child
born of the wild
riddled to spend my time
defending my land
you are my only one
born in the sun
riddled to spend you time
defending my plan

i went looking for a car
found myself beneath the stars
i went looking for a girl
found a man and his world

chickenman chickenman chickenman
hold my hand
i am an only child
hold my hand
chickenman chickenman chickenman
hold my hand
