Chicken In Black Ukulele Chords

[A]For two long years my head hurt bad
So a [D]doctor checked me an he shook his head
He said [E7]I’m sorry to tell you
But your body’s outlived your [A]brain
He said I know this doctor in New York, son
And he’ll [D]fix you right up with a brand new one
So the [E7]head doctor met me
When I stepped down off of the [A]train.

[A]He said we had this bank robber killed last night
His [D]body’s shot but his brain’s alright
I’ll [E7]give you a transplant, boy
And you’ll be [A]OK
I got my new brain in and I was feeling great
I went [D]right back to Nashville with no headache
But something [E7]strange happened
When I walked in the bank one [A]day.

I said [D]stick them up everybody I’m robbing this place
Drop [A]all of your money in my guitar case
Don’t [D]nobody move and don’t nobody reach for that [E7]door
A [A]lady said, why you’re Johnny Cash
I said [D]no madam, I’m the Manhattan Flash
And I [E7]am the best bank robber in New [A]York.

[A]Now the other night Roy Acuff called me
He said [D]John I’d like for you to do the Opry
So I [E7]went out on the stage, but I couldn’t [A]sing
I got into a half a verse of “I Walk The Line”
And [D]something snapped in this head of mine
I yelled [E7]stick ’em up
Give me your money, your watches and [A]rings.

[Bb] [Eb] [F7]

[Bb]Well, I called New York and talked to that brain quack
And said [Eb]Doc I gotta have my old brain back
He said I’m [F7]sorry there, Mr. Cash, but I can’t do [Bb]that
He said I put your brain in a chicken last monday
He’s [Eb]singing your songs and making lots of money
And I got him [F7]signed to a ten-year recording con[Bb]tract.

[Bb]Now friends if you see me walking down the street
Remember [Eb]what you see ain’t necessarily me
And if I [F7]try to hold you up, don’t pay me no [Bb]mind
But when you got ten bucks that you can blow
You oughta [Eb]catch that Johnny Chicken show
He’s doing [F7]fairs and concert dates
All up and down the [Bb]line.

I said [Eb]stick them up everybody I’m robbing this place
Drop [Bb]all of your money in my guitar case
Don’t [Eb]nobody move and don’t nobody reach for that [F7]door
A [Bb]lady said, why you’re Johnny Cash
I said [Eb]no ma’am, I’m the Manhattan Flash
And I [F7]am the best bank robber in New [Bb]York.

Well, I don’t pay any income tax…
You don’t pay tax on money you steal…
You oughta catch that Johnny Chicken show…
Chicken in black! hmm!
