Lyrics

Lord, Oh Lord, Lord, Oh Lord

Take me back to that chicken-fighting world



I got me a wife and two teenage girls

I’m ducking crossfire in a no man’s world

“You’re my sis how could you be so sassy mean?”

“If I’m so fat how come you fit in my jeans?”

Not long ago when they were little chicks

we’d head to the river for an evening dip

Ruthie on my shoulders, Sara on my wife’s

Moonlight splashing in those chicken fights



Lord, Oh Lord, Lord, Oh Lord

Take me back to that chicken-fighting world

When I was Solomon-wise and Samson-strong in those

little girls’ eyes I could do no wrong



Take me back to when they rode on our shoulders

Take me back to when they’d never grow older

Take me back to that chicken-fighting world when I got

Nothing but love from those chicken-fighting girls



Losing used to mean getting wet and refreshed

Now it leads to “I’ll get you yet”

When they gonna learn nobody wins

When everybody’s gotta get the last word in



Lord, Oh Lord, Lord, Oh Lord

Take me back to that chicken-fighting world

When I was Charlie Pride singing ‘em to sleep

In those little girls’ minds I never sang off key

They thought I oughta go down in history

‘cause I could walk on water and part the sea



Take me back to when they rode on our shoulders

Take me back to when they’d never grow older

Take me back to that chicken-fighting world when I got

Nothing but love from those chicken-fighting girls



The good Lord works in mysterious ways,

Sometimes you get what you want, sometimes you get what you need

Sometimes you get down on your knees and pray

And what you think you got coming you get to see

Heading to the river, riding on our shoulders,

laughing in the water, two little granddaughters



Lord, Oh Lord, Lord, Oh Lord

I’ll be back in that chicken-fighting world

And I’ll be Solomon-wise and Samson-strong

In those little girls’ eyes I’ll do no wrong

When I’m Charlie Pride singing ‘em to sleep

In those little girls’ minds I’ll never sing off key

They’ll remember me and our history

‘cause I’ll walk on water and part the sea



I’ll be back and they’ll ride on our shoulders

I’ll be back and they’ll never grow older

I’ll be back in that chicken-fighting world

Getting nothing but love from those chicken-fighting girls

Lord oh Lord those chicken-fighting girls
