Lyrics

DEAD CHICKEN
DocKelly



DEAD CHICKEN ON A COUNTRY ROAD, NEVER MADE IT TO THE OTHER SIDE
I'M NOT SURE WHY IT TRIED TO CROSS, BUT I CAN SURE TELL YOU WHY IT DIED

YOUNG MUSLIM IN A MUD BUILT TOWN, FROM BIRTH THEY'VE HAD TO RUN AND HIDE
I'M NOT SURE WHAT THE CHILD DID WRONG, BUT I CAN SURE TELL YOU WHY SHE DIED


AMERICAN SOLDIER IN A FOREIGN LAND, FULL OF COURAGE AND AMERICAN PRIDE
I'M NOT SURE WHAT WE WERE FIGHTING FOR, BUT I CAN SURE TELL YOU WHY HE DIED


8 MEASURE GUITAR SOLO


CHORUS
THEY SHARE ONE THING IN COMMON, GET IT THROUGH YOUR HEAD
YOU GET BUT ONE CHANCE AT LIVING, CAUSE ONCE YOU'RE DEAD YOU'RE DEAD
THERE AIN'T NO FIXING DEAD


GUITAR INSTRUMENTAL


HALF VERSE


DEAD CHICKEN ON A COUNTRY ROAD
NEVER MADE IT TO THE OTHER SIDE
