Chicken Scratch lyrics by Jennifer Milligan

Howlin’ Wolf was howlin’ from an old beat up car
When I saw a French rooster scratchin’ on his guitar.
He said, “Hey Lil’ Red, I’m gonna show you a star.”

He said, “Hey Lil’ Red”, come and sit with me.
They tell me that you come from across the sea.
And I sure would be delighted if you’d scratched with me.”

And we scratch. Scratch scratch.
Yea, we scratch. Do the Chicken Scratch.
Cause when the itch is overwhelming baby, well ya gotta scratch.

This little French rooster wrapped me up in his smile
As he whispered through his amp Oh all set to beguile.
He said, “I’ll show ya how to scratch chicken style.”

He said, “Hey Lil’ Red, I’m ready to go!
I got an itch in my tail feather and I’m ready to crow!”
I hear they play the Blues in Columbus, Ohio.”

Let’s go and scratch. Scratch scratch.
Time to scratch. Do the Chicken Scratch.
Cause when the itch is overwhelming baby, well ya gotta scratch.

When the itch is overwhelming baby, you gotta scratch.
When the itch is overwhelming baby, well ya gotta scratch.
And when the itch is overwhelming baby, ya gotta scratch.
