Chicken Truck

In the style of

John Anderson

Lyrics

well it was mornin'
when i left alabama
it must have been
around in mid-july

i got behind
a chicken truck
from georgia
and the feathers
was a-flyin'
like snow
out of the sky lord

i couldn't get up
the speed enough
to pass him
and a funny smell
was a-gettin' close
to me

and somethin'
keeps on messin' up
my windshield
and the further i go
the harder it gets
to see lord

and chicken truck
chicken truck
behind it i'm stuck
chicken truck
chicken truck
it's just my luck
chicken truck
on highway 65

well the hens
are a-squawkin'
and the roosters
are a-crowin'

he's slowin'
me down
when i need
to keep goin'
chicken truck
on highway 65

well he slowed down
and i finally
got around him
on a big long hill
just south
of tennessee

he had a box
of colonel sanders
on his dashboard
well he was eatin'
fried chicken
and a-throwin'
the bones on me yeah

and chicken truck
chicken truck
behind it i'm stuck
chicken truck
chicken truck
just my luck
chicken truck
on highway 65

well them hens
are a-squawkin'
and the roosters
are a-crowin'

he's slowin'
me down
when i need
to keep goin'
chicken truck
on highway 65

chicken truck
chicken truck
behind it i'm stuck
lord it's just my luck
