Indigo Girls – Chickenman lyrics

I am an only child
Born of the wild
Riddled to spend my time
Defending my land
You are the only one
Born in the sun
Riddled to spend your time
Defending my plan
Dead dog on the highway
Median cats are growling at me
I turn my lights on brighter
I'm counting through the night ride
And it's one more life
(For the taker)
Chickenman, chickenman
One more song
(For the maker)
Chickenman, chickenman
On the road to Athens
I saw a dead deer on the highway
I slipped into a desert
Five prairie dogs and a rabbit
I was running down on Queen Street
I saw a woman on the sidewalk
(Danger danger)
She was beaten by a stranger
(Danger danger danger danger)
Danger danger danger
And it's one more life
(For the taker)
Chickenman, chickenman
Chickenman hold my hand
One more song
(For the maker)
Hold my hand
Chickenman
I was on the road to Austin
Met a man on the highway
He sold me junk and conversation
He was wise and dirty from the weather
I said, "Darkness into darkness
All the carnage of my journeys
Makes it harder to be living"
He said, "It's a long road to be forgiven"
It's one more life
(For the taker)
Chickenman, chickenman
Chickenman hold my had
One more song
(For the maker)
Chickenman, chickenman
Chickenman hold my hand
I am an only child
Born of the wild
Riddled to spend my time
Defending my land
You are the only one
Born in the sun
Riddled to spend your time
Defending my plan
I went looking for a car
Found myself beneath the stars
I went looking for a girl
Found a man and his world
Chickenman, chickenman
(I went looking for a car)
Chickenman hold my hand
(Found myself beneath the stars)
Chickenman, chickenman
(I went looking for a girl)
Chickenman hold my hand
(Found a man and his world)
I am an only child
(Chickenman, chickenman)
(Chickenman hold my hand)
Hold my hand
(Chickenman, chickenman)
(Chickenman hold my hand)
I am an only child
(Chickenman, chickenman)
(Chickenman hold my hand)
Hold my hand
(Chickenman, chickenman)
(Chickenman hold my hand)
Chickenman chickenman
Chickenman hold my hand
Chickenman chickenman
Chickenman hold my hand
Chickenman chickenman
Chickenman hold my hand
Chickenman chickenman
Chickenman hold my hand
