The Chicken in Black


For two long years my head hurt bad, so the doctor checked me and he shook his head,
He said: ?I'm sorry to tell you, but your body outlived your brain?.
He said: ?I know this doctor in New York, son and he'll fix you right up with a brand new one?.
So the head doctor met me when I stepped down off the train.
He said: ?We had this bank robber killed last night. His body's shot, but his brain's alright.
I'll give you a transplant boy and you'll be o.k.?
I got my new brain and I was feelin? great.
I went right back to Nashville with no headache,
But somethin? strange happened when I walked in the bank one day.

I said: ?Stick ?em everybody, I'm robbin? this place.
Drop all of your money in my guitar case.
Don't nobody move and don't nobody reach for that door?.

A lady said: ?Why you're Johnny Cash?.
I said: ?No m?am, I'm the Manhattan Flash and I am the best bank robber in New York?.

Now the other night Roy Acuff called me.
He said: ?John, I'd like for you to do the opry?.
So I went out on the stage but I couldn't sing. I got into half a verse of ?I Walk The Line?
Then somethin? snapped in this head of mine, I yelled,
?Stick ?em up, give me your money, your watches and rings?.
Well, I called New York and talked to that brain quack.
I said: ?Doc, I've got to have my old brain back?.
He said: ?I'm sorry there; Mr. Cash, but I can't do that?.
He said: ?I put your brain in a chicken last Monday.
He's singin? your songs and makin? lots of money,
And I got him signed to a ten year recording contract?.

Now friends, if you see me walkin? down the street,
Remember what you see ain't necessarily me.
And if I try to hold you up don't pay me no mind,
But when you got ten bucks that you can blow.
You ought a catch that Johnny Chicken Show.
He's doin? fairs and concert dates all up and down the line.

I said: ?Stick ?em everybody, I'm robbin? this place.
Drop all of your money in my guitar case,
Don't nobody move and don't nobody reach for that door?.

A lady said: ?Why you're Johnny Cash?.
I said: ?No m?am, I'm the Manhattan Flash and I am the best bank robber in New York?.

Well, I don't pay any income tax you don't pay tax on money you steal,
You ought a catch that Johnny Chicken Show Chicken in black!
