I've got a hen, a good old hen.
She lays eggs for the railroad men.
Sometimes eight, sometimes ten.
That's enough for the railroad men.


Cluck old hen, cluck and sing.
You ain't laid an egg since way last spring.
Cluck old hen. Cluck and squall.
You ain't laid an egg since way last fall.

My old hen, she won't do.
She lays eggs and tatters too.
First time she cackled, she cackled a lot.
Next time she cackles, she'll cackle in the pot.


My old hen had a wooden leg.
Best old hen that ever laid an egg.
Laid more eggs than any hen on the farm.
A little drop of liquor wouldn't do her no harm.


from If My Luck Don't Change, released November 20, 2016
