"Cluck Old Hen" as written by and Bert Jansch....
My old hen, she's a good ol' hen
She lays eggs for the railroad men
Sometimes eight and sometimes ten
That's enough for the railroad men

Chorus
Cluck ol' hen cluck when I tell you
Cluck ol' hen or I'm gonna sell you
Last time she cackled she cackled in the lot
Next time she cackles cackles in the pot

My old hen, she's a good ol' hen
She lays eggs for the railroad men
Sometimes one and sometimes two
Sometimes enough for the whole damn crew

Chorus
Cluck ol' hen cluck and sing
You ain't laid an egg since late last spring
Cluck ol' hen cluck and call
You ain't laid an egg since late last fall
