I've tried googling this tune with no luck. I'm looking for the words to a blues called Chickens by Hayes Carll and Ray Wylie Hubbard. I've heard Hayes sing iton a couple of occasions and found scraps of the song running through my head the last few days. Anyone know the words?

What scraps of lyrics have you found running through your head? That might help us find/remember your song.

Chickens in my front yard, all they do is scratch and peck (X2)
Gonna go out there and catch one, then I'll wring his neck.

It ain't meaness Y'all, it's just hungry's what I am (X2)

CHICKENS is on Hayes Carll's album "Little Rock." All I can do is to make a slight improvement on your quote. This is pieced together from a couple of sound samples and quotes found on the Internet:

I got chickens in my front yard. What they do is scratch and peck.
I got chickens in my front yard. What they do is scratch and they peck.
Come suppertime, I'll go out there, find me one, and wring its neck.

It ain't meanness, y'all. It's just hungry's what I am. (2x)
Ain't nothing in this world like fried chicken. Yes, ma'am.

Here's Dimo's Blues at Blogspot, but I don't see anything there about CHICKENS or about Hayes Carll.

CHICKENS
(Ray Wylie Hubbard & Hayes Carll)

I got chickens in my front yard, what they do is scratch and peck
I got chickens in my front yard, what they do is scratch and peck
Come supper time I'll go out there gonna find me one and wring its neck.

It ain't meanness ya'll it's just hungry's what I am
It ain't meanness ya'll it's just hungry's what I am
There ain't nothin' in this world better than fried chicken yes ma'am.

If it rains today ah, the back yards turn to flood
If it rains today ah, the back yards turn to mud
If it don't it won't either way won't rile my blood.

I'm sittin' on the porch swing watchin' the sky and fiddlin' wood
I'm sittin' on the porch swing watchin' the sky and fiddlin' wood
There's an old crow on the cloths line countin' his toes and feelin' good.

I got chickens in my front yard, what they do is scratch and peck
I got chickens in my front yard, what they do is scratch and peck
Come supper time I'll go out there gonna find me one and wring its neck.

It ain't meanness ya'll it's just hungry's what I am.
