A Chicken Can Waltz the Gravy Around

This song is by Stovepipe No. 1 And David Crockett and appears on the compilation Good for What Ails You: Music of the Medicine Shows 1926-1937 (2005).

My wife she called me to breakfast, I walked right through the gate
She set me down to the table, no chicken on my plate
I grabbed my knapsack on my shoulders, said honey you be too late
In 15 minutes by any man's watch, I'll have some chicken on my plate

Oh chicken, oh chicken, you can brown nice and brown
Oh chicken, oh chicken, you can waltz the gravy around
Oh chicken, oh chicken, I don't need no fowl for that
For us chicken grow, in this town, and we can't get too fat

Oh chicken, oh chicken, you can boil nice and brown
Oh chicken, oh chicken, you can waltz the gravy around
Oh chicken, oh chicken, 'cause I don't fall to that
For us chicken grow, in this town, and we can't get too fat

Oh when I come to yer neighborhood, chicken know just what I mean
Chicken steppin' and dodgin', no, chicken can't be seen
The hen she said to the rooster, now it ain't no use to hide
He's got a shotgun, and it hurts to run, and we can't roost too high

Recorded:

1927
