Tom T. Hall — Song Of The One Legged Chicken lyrics

Do you like true stories I do that's why I'm singing this song
A song about one legged chicken who lives in the straw on the floor in my barn
I remember the day she was hatched out the vet came to see her and said
She has only one leg she'll never grow up he said that chick would be better off dead
I said no let's just let her keep growing we'll just wait and see how she gets
Before very long she was hopping and pecking and chasing the bugs with the rest
And now she is a beautiful chicken though she has only one leg
When I go to see her each morning she hops from the nest and she leaves me an egg
And she cackles
Do you like true stories I do that's why I've sung you this song
The song about the one legged chicken who lives on the floor in my barn
