Chicken on the Ground  Billy Joe Shaver

Verse 1:
[G] There's an old familiar hillside overl[C/G]ooking Emhouse,Texas
Where i l[G]eft some childhood memories layin' r[D]ound
I can [G]almost hear the singing,i can s[C/G]till remember praying
At them [G]old campground meetings eatin' ch[D]icken on the gr[G]ound
[G] With them h[D]allelujahs ringin',everyb[G]ody shoutin',singin'
Give me that old time religion,Jesus loves me,this i kn[D]ow
When l[G]ife was finger-lickin' good and [C/G]God lived in our neighborhood
At them [G]old campground meetin's eatin' ch[D]icken on the gr[C/G]ound
Verse 2:
[G] I can still remember feelin' all that [C/G]happiness inside me
When i pr[G]aised the Lord and laid my burdens d[D]own
But that ch[G]icken must have tasted better t[C/G]han the word of God
'Cause it went sl[G]ippin' through my fingers and r[D]ollin' on the gr[G]ound
Verse 3:
[G] I reckon everyone of us can [C/G]call back or remember
When the t[G]aste and smell of youth was all ar[D]ound
And i r[G]eckon in our own way every[C/G]one of us is payin' now
For e[G]atin' chicken and not listenin' to [D]old Parson Br[G]own
Chorus (x3).
