CLUCK OLD HEN . American, Reel. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB. Source Ed Weaver knew the following verses for the tune:
Cluck old hen, you'd better cluck,
Hawk's gonna eat your chickens up.
Some lays one, some lays two,
Some lay enough for the whole darn crew.
Good old hen, good old hen,
You lay eggs for the railroad men.
