Gotta Sell Them Chickens
Recorded by Hank Thompson and Junior Brown
Written Hank Thompson

G
Well my pappy told me as I was sittin' on his knee
D7
About the birds and the bees and such

You can do right proud in a college crowd
G
But you ain't gonna learn that much


Get your degree in the ABC's
C
And dig out the cold hard facts
G
You've got to sell them chickens before they die
D7 G
And the eggs before they hatch


Now I was told at the Super Bowl
D7
When the crowd let out a roar

A big 'ole back with a ball and jack
G
And went on in to score


The coach recalled when he spiked the ball
C
Said forget the old cotton patch
G
I wanna sell them chickens before they die
D7 G
And the eggs before they hatch


Old slugger's ball was a-headin’ to the wall
D7
With what looked like a home run clout

But the fielder's glove went high above
G
And caught it for the final out


On the sporting page he was all the rage
C
When they asked him how he made that catch
G
Well I sold them chickens before they died
D7 G
And the eggs before they hatch


Now the boxing king climbed into the ring
D7
To fight for the title bout

But a right to the jaw was all he saw
G
As the ref was a countin' him out


The manager said as he shook his head
C
Son you done lost this match
G
You gotta sell them chickens before they die
D7 G
And the eggs before they hatch


Now a friend I know searched high and low
D7
For the secrets to success

And he didn't stop 'til he got to the top
G
Of old Mt. Everest


An old guru told him all he knew
C
As he thumbed through his artifacts
G
You gotta sell them chickens before they die
D7 G
And the eggs before they hatch


Now the moral here should be clear
D7
And it's one I'd like to share

Just be yourself like nobody else
G
And you might become a millionaire


Your reply when they wonder why
C
How'd you make all that scratch
G
Well you sold them chickens before they died
D7 G
And the eggs before they hatch


Yeah want to know how you made that dough
C
Just tell them how to make a batch
G
Just sell them chickens before they die
D7 G
And the eggs before they hatch
