Chicken of Depression Blues

My woman’s been cheatin’ on me, I’m settin’ up here on the shelf
Oh yeah, my woman’s been cheatin’ on me, I’m settin’ up here on the shelf
But my baby don’t have another man, she’s cheatin’ on me with herself

Come home early one night, before the bars was all closed down
Oh yeah, I come home early one night, before the bars was all closed down
Thought I’d do right by my little woman, take her out on the town

Ain’t no bluebird of happiness singin’ on my street
Oh no, ain’t no bluebird of happiness singin’ on my street
Not since the chicken of depression started peckin’ at my feet

Heard commotion in the bedroom, tiptoed by to have a look
Mmmm hmmm, I heard commotion in the bedroom, tiptoed by to have a look
My baby was in our rockin’ chair, but she wasn’’t readin’ no book

Now I’m sleepin’ on the sofa, while my baby’s rockin’ all night long
Yeah, I’m sleepin’ on the sofa, while my baby’s rockin’ all night long
Says she’s got emancipation, now she’s doing right what I done wrong

Since my baby started cheatin’, ain’t no bluebird singin’ on my street
No, since my baby started cheatin’, ain’t no bluebird singin’ on my street
Not since the chicken of depression started peckin’ at my feet
