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.

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

Chicky Ay Yay!

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.

PJ--that was awesome. As a strict carnivore, I'm probably due for a grisly death at the...claws? hooves? fins?...of any number of critters. I would go look for the melody to go with this, except that I am ridiculously subject to Ear Worms and I'd never get the thing out of my head.

I swear, I have got to quit drinking things with some of you people on the forum. I'm starting to recognize who's catching me off guard and won't take that next sip of whatever.

The melody is "Ghost Riders in the Sky"

You know I drink coffee. What else do you need to know about my drinking habits?
I can neither confirm nor deny any such alleged activities in that area.
