I can't help with chords, but here is my attempt at a transcription of the lyrics from Spotify:

POULET SHACK
Written by Hal Brolund
As sung by Hal Brolund on "Worn Out Shoes"

A bouffant hairdo, polyester clothes,
A diamond stud stuck to her nose.
Girl's got style, there's no doubt.
If you want to get her, you got to stick your chicken neck way out.

CHORUS: Poulet shack (poulet shack) poulet shack (poulet shack)
Chicken in the front (poulet shack), chicken in the back (poulet shack)
Poulet gumbo (poulet shack), red beans and rice (poulet shack)
All served up (poulet shack) all served up* (poulet shack)
And I know what you're lookin' for

Poulet shack, ah, yeah

She like Chevrolet muscle cars
All revved up to drive real far
She's a redneck beauty, a calendar girl
When the carnival comes to town, boys, she likes that Tilt-a-Whirl

CHORUS

It's poulet shack

Poulet shack, poulet shack
Poulet dans le front, et dans le back
Poulet gumbo, feuille(?) et riz
Tout est prêt; tout est prêt
Je sais que vous cherchez encore

CHORUS

All the boys they like her stuff
And when it comes to lovin, she serves it up
She's got low-cut dresses and high-heeled shoes
Let me tell you fellows that girl is bad, bad news

CHORUS TWICE

* Terry Blankley also sings this song on "Cold Weather Blues." He sings "all served up nice"--which I like because it completes the rhyme with "rice."

There's a YouTube video of this, so I turned on my little keyboard and sounded out what Manitoba Hal is singing. (But I lost interest fast.) I kept returning to Gm.

Gm? That's G-B-flat-D. He may be singing in F or in B flat. When an amateur is trying to figure out what chords a professional is using, it always helps to know what key the pro is using. If it doesn't suit you, you can change it later.
