|Click Play Speed||Slow 1/4=120||Medium 1/4=150||Fast 1/4=210|
|This delightful old song uses myxolydian mode and is very popular with old time music fans. It is performed as both a vocal and instrumental dance tune. Commonly played quite fast in A. (Banjo and guitar playing G shape with capo 2) If you are just a chord strummer you can make this sound better if you can substitute an A# for the A note in your F chord. (3rd fret on G string instead of the second.)|
Chor My old hen's a good old hen She lays eggs for the railroad men Sometimes eight sometimes ten Thats enough for the railroad men Cluck old hen cluck and sing Ain't laid an egg since late last spring Cluck old hen cluck and squall Ain't laid an egg since late last fall
Cluck old hen, cluck I tell yer, Cluck old hen, I'm gonna sell yer. Cluck old hen, cluck I tell yer, Cluck old hen, I'm gonna sell yer. Hen oh hen where's your chickins gone, Down in the new ground pickin up corn. Hen oh hen where's your chickins gone, Down in the new ground pickin up corn.
