Track Name: Chicken Thief (Field Recording)
Instrumental
Track Name: Chicken Reel
Chicken, o' chicken you can't roost too high for me
Chicken, o' chicken come on out of that tree
Chicken, o' chicken I'll never let you be
A hundred dollar bill for a chicken you can roost too high for me

Chicken, o' chicken get up in a balloon
Chicken, o' chicken you can roost behind the moon
aChicken, o' chicken I'll never let you be
A hundred dollar bill for a chicken you can roost too high for me
Track Name: Old Bachelors
Tennesseans, they live on tea
Alabamans, they'll eat what they please
North Carolina has tar and rosin
North Dakota has cougars and possums
Old bachelors are hard to please, they're hard to please

I went up north to make a trade
First I found was a bar room maid
Thought that was where I'd land
She had her hair just like a man
Old bachelors are hard to please, they're hard to please

I'm going back up to the hill
Where the doctor does not peddle pills
Take my fiddle and my old banjo
I might get married, but I don't know
Old bachelors are hard to please, they're hard to please
