Do you mean Andrea Aldridge's song "Capons" (the capons keep rolling along)?

Back in the '70's C.W. McCall did a trucking album, and one of the songs,called "Wolf Creek Pass," relates a story about a driver who loses his air-brakes while coming down a steep grade in an overloaded chicken truck. It's a great song.

Sounds frightfully like the plot of the song "30,000 lbs. of bannanas", sung by Harry Chapin about a guy who loses his brakes comming down a mountain loaded with...you guessed it...30,000 lbs of bannanas.

Hmmm

ALL OF THE MONKEYS AIN'T IN THE ZOO! (Tommy Collins)

CHICKEN TRUCK - Recorded by John Anderson

Written by Ervan James Parker, Monroe Fields & John Anderson

Well, It was mornin' when I left Alabama; It must have been around in mid July

I got behind a chicken truck from Georgia; And the feathers was a-flyin' like snow out of the sky.

CHORUS/Chicken truck, chicken truck; Behind it I'm stuck

Chicken truck, chicken truck; It's just my luck, chicken truck

(Chicken truck) on Highway Sixty-Five

Well, the hens are a squawin' and the roosters are a-crowin'

He's a slowin' me down when I need to keep goin'

Chicken truck on Highway Sixty-Five.

CHICKEN IN BLACK - Recorded by Johnny Cash/Written by Gary Gentry

For two long years my head hurt bad; The doctor checked me and he shook his head

He said, "I'm sorry to tell ya; But your body's 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 of the train.

CHORUS/I said, "Stick 'em up 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."

WALK, CHICKEN, WALK ('Cause You're Too Fat To Fly) - Recorded by Little Jimmy Dickens

Walk, Chicken, Walk; 'Cause you're too fat to fly

Walk, Chicken, Walk; I'll regret it til the day I die

She turned around, looked me right in the face

I said, "Pardon me, Ma'am, I'm due some other place"

Walk, Chicken, Walk; 'Cause you're too fat to fly.

Alison,

Your reference to the banana truck reminds me of an incident one time when I was driving in Iran.

Iran is notorious for having very bad road accidents. I was driving into town one day when I saw what was obviously an accident way up ahead.

As I got nearer I saw what appeared to be blood all over the road.

I prepared myself for a very gruesome sight. As I got nearer still I saw large chunks of what looked like severed limbs in the road. My stomach was really turning by this time.

When I finally got near enough it turned out to be an overturned truck of watermelons.

Bert.

Isn't there a joke about bashing the side of a truck to keep the chickens in the air?

Hey, Gene, (Oh Great High Guru) did Becky ever find you? She started out in New Jersey....Yours, Peter

CHICKEN TRUCK
Recorded by John Anderson
Written by Ervan James Parker, Monroe Fields & John Anderson

Well, it was mornin' when I left Alabama.
It must have been around in mid-July.
I got behind a chicken truck from Georgia,
And the feathers was a-flyin' like snow out of the sky.

I couldn't get up the speed enough to pass him,
And a funny smell was a-gettin' close to me,
And somethin' keeps on messin' up my windshield,
And the further I go, the harder it gets to see.

CHORUS: Chicken truck, chicken truck, behind it I'm stuck.
Chicken truck, chicken truck, it's just my luck,
Chicken truck, chicken truck, on Highway Sixty-Five.
Well, the hens are a-squawkin' and the roosters are a-crowin'.
He's a-slowin' me down when I need to keep goin',
Chicken truck on Highway Sixty-Five.

Then he slowed down and I fin'lly got around him
On a big long hill just south of Tennessee.
He had a box of Colonel Sanders on his dashboard,
And he was eatin' fried chicken and a-throwin' the bones on me.

(Repeat chorus)

Yes, this descent into the lower depths may have something to do with it being August. Sorry, Yours, Peter
