    A chicken farmer went out on one dark and dusty day
    And by the coop he rested as he went along his way
    When all at once, a rotten egg, hit him in the eye
    It was the sight that he most dreaded: Ghost Chickens in the Sky

    This farmer had these chickens since he was twenty-four
    Working for the Colonel for thirty years or more
    Raising all those chickens up to send them off to fry
    And now they came for their revenge: Ghost Chickens in the Sky

    Their beaks were black and shiny, their eyes were blazing red
    They had no meat or feathers - Folks! These chickens all were dead!
    They raised that farmer up and he died by chicken claw
    They cooked him extra crispy, and served him with cole slaw

    So let this song remind you if you want eternal peace:
    Don't raise up harmless poultry for to cook 'em in the grease
    Remember: don't raise animals that you will some day kill
    For a chicken may come haunt you, but Tofu never will.

    The chorus of course:

    Chicky Ay Yay
    Chicky Ay Yo
    Ghost Chickens in the Sky

    It used to be performed on the Grand Ole Opry by Leroy Troy.

    I think there are another two verses or so. The song was performed in different ways at different times. There are some Youtube videos of it.
