Caw Caw Blues Lyrics

Rodney Crowell – Caw Caw Blues Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Heckle and Jeckle built a barbed wire nest
In a windmill derrick way out west
Scooping up scraps down the long fence line
It was a work of art, the only one of its kind

[Verse 2]
Way out around Lubbock as the John Crow flies
Ole Heckle and Jeckle built a sky high rise
Heckle and Jeckle, so cold jet black
You could see 'em at night in the cactus Jack

[Chorus]
Murder of crows, murder of crows
Two old birds make a murder of crows
Everyone knows that anything goes
Ol' Heckle and Jeckle make a murder of crows

[Verse 3]
Catching baby rattlesnakes two-by-two
We're gonna make a little pot of that rattlesnake stew
Little baby rattlesnakes better watch out
Ol' Heckle and Jeckle steady out and about

[Chorus]
Murder of crows, murder of crows
Two old birds make a murder of crows
Everyone knows that anything goes
Ol' Heckle and Jeckle make a murder of crows

[Verse 4]
Scarecrow standing in a tall corn patch
Heckle and Jeckle got nary a scratch
Eating like kings nearly all day long
Dodging that buckshot, singing that song

[Verse 5]
Caw Caw Blues, Caw Caw Blues
Ten'll get you twenty if you're counting by twos
Barbed wire palace full of magpie chicks
Old Heckle and Jeckle steady getting their kicks

[Chorus]
Murder of crows, murder of crows
Two old birds make a murder of crows
Everyone knows that anything goes
Ol' Heckle and Jeckle make a murder of crows

[Outro]
Daddy's in the kitchen in his everyday shoes
Sittin' down singing them Caw Caw Blues
