CHICKENMAN (Amy Ray)
--------------------

[Tuning: DADGBD]
[Each chord is one measure.]
[I mostly got these chords from the songbook, but I'm not sure they're
 right.  The songbook had some blatant errors, so I can't really trust it.]

D5: 000230    D7sus: 000210, or maybe 005530?    Csus9: 030030    G: 020000
D(4): 000030?    D: 000234    Dsus: 000235

[Play the D5 (and possibly the D7sus, if you use the 000210 fingering)
 with hammer-ons from 0 to 2 on the G string every now and then.]


D5                D7sus            D5
I am an only child     born of the wild
D7sus      D5              D7sus      D5
Riddled to spend my time defending my land

D5                  D7sus
You are the only one     born in the sun
D5         D7sus             D7sus      D5
Riddled to spend your time defending my plan

[instrumental]

D5                  D7sus    D5                       D7sus
Dead dog on the highway,     median cats are growling at me
  D5                      D5      D7sus                 D5        D5
I turn my lights on brighter, I'm counting through the night ride

         Csus9    G            D5     D5
And it's one more life for the taker, Chickenman
Csus9    G            D5     D5
One more song for the maker, Chickenman
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/i/indigo_girls/chickenman_crd.html ]
D5                  D5   D5                       D7sus
On the road to Athens, I saw a dead deer on the highway
  D5               D5     D7sus                  D5     D5
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
She was beaten by a stranger,    danger danger danger

         Csus9    G            D5     D5
And it's one more life for the taker, Chickenman, hold my hand
Csus9    G             D5                  D5
One more song for the maker (Hold my hand, Chickenman)

[instrumental]

I was on the road to Austin,  I 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"

         Csus9    G            D5     D5
And it's one more life for the taker, Chickenman, hold my hand
Csus9    G             D5                D5                      D5 [stop]
One more song for the maker (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

n.c.   n.c.   D5   D5
[instrumental]
D5                        D5
I went looking for a car, found myself beneath the stars
D5                         D5
I went looking for a girl, found a man and his world
D5    -     D5/E        D5/F#   -    D5/c
Chickenman, chickenman, chickenman, hold my hand
D5    -     D5/E        D5/F#   -    D5/c
Chickenman, chickenman, chickenman, hold my hand  [repeat until ending]
