Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Chickenman  Indigo Girls


[Tuning: DADGBD] 
[Eacb cbord 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]I am an only child[D7sus]     born of the [D5]wild
[D7sus]Riddled to [D5]spend my time de[D7sus]fending my [D5]land
[D5]You are the only one[D7sus]     born in the sun
[D5]Riddled to [D7sus]spend your time de[D7sus]fending my [D5]plan
[D5] [inst[D5]rumen[D5]tal] [D5]     [D5]     [D5]     [D5]     [D5]
[D5]Dead dog on the high[D7sus]way,     [D5]median cats are growling [D7sus]at me
I [D5]turn my lights on bright[D5]er, I'm [D7sus]counting through the n[D5]ight ride [D5]
And it's [Csus9]one more [G]life for the [D5]taker, [D5]Chickenman
[Csus9]One more [G]song for the [D5]maker, [D5]Chickenman
[D5]On the road to Athen[D5]s, I [D5]saw a dead deer on the hi[D7sus]ghway
I [D5]slipped into a de[D5]sert, f[D7sus]ive prairie dogs and a [D5]rabbit [D5]
I was running down on Queen Street, I saw a woman on the sidewalk
She was beaten by a stranger, danger danger danger

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

[D(4] [InstrumD5]ental] [D(4]        [D5]      [D(4]       [D5]      [D(4]        [D5]
D5     D5     D - Dsus    D - Dsus    D - Dsus    D - Dsus


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"

And it's [Csus9]one more [G]life for the [D5]taker, [D5]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
[D5]I went looking for a car, [D5]found myself beneath the stars
[D5]I went looking for a girl, [D5]found a man and his world
[D5]Chicke[-]nman, [D5/E]chickenman, [D5/F#]chickenm[-]an, h[D5/C]old my hand
[D5]Chicke[-]nman, [D5/E]chickenman, [D5/F#]chickenm[-]an, h[D5/C]old my hand  [repeat until ending]
