CROW BLACK CHICKEN. AKA - "Chicken Pie." Old-Time, Song Tune. Lyrics begin:

I went up on the mountain to give my horn a blow,
I thought I heard my true love say 'Yonder goes my beau.'

Cho:
Crow black chicken and crow for day,
Crow black chicken and fly away;
Crow black chicken and crow for day,
I love chicken pie.

A related melody is "Run Mountain."

Recorded sources: Folkways FA 2494, "Sing Songs of the New Lost City Ramblers" (1979). Columbia 15318 (78RPM), Leake County Revelers. See also entry in Jane Keefer's Folk Music Index [1].
