Brushy One String: CHICKEN IN THE CORN LYRICS

The story behind Brushy One String’s Chicken in The Corn video…

 

Sometime ago in Jamaica, RiseUp director Luciano Blotta arrived at a rural recording studio to encounter a rare find: a man holding a one-string guitar! The man identified himself as Brushy One String and quickly offered to sing a song for Luciano, who without much thought or preview, hit the record button…What followed was the stellar delivery of Chicken in The Corn, in one uninterrupted take that included sing-alongs from all the other studio visitors, who were also sitting around outside.

 

That was the day when Luciano discovered Brushy in the Jamaican underground music scene. Call it Destiny, but the two man connected immediately and began a brotherhood that has now produced the resurrection of Brushy and the emergence of his music to the world stage, a journey that in many ways, is just beginning all over again.

 

So for all the fans that have requested it, below are the lyrics to the now famous viral hit by Brushy One String, as recorded for his debut albumDESTINY. You can download both the video version and the album recording on Amazon or iTunes as follows:

CHICKEN IN THE CORN by Brushy One String

 

Hey, Poncho, where are you going?

I’m going to San Francisco man

To see my friend El Poncho

He says, hey One String

There’s something you got to know, you know?

I said, yeah?

When we are back on our saddles and our horses

We sing this old country song like this

 

Chicken in the corn

Say the corn can’t grow, mamma

When chicken in the corn

Say the corn can’t grow

When chicken in the corn

Say the corn can’t grow

When chicken in the corn

Say the corn can’t grow

 

On my way to San Francisco

Where I buck my friend and his name was Poncho

He said one string

There’s something you got to know

When we are back on our saddles and our horses

Where we go

We sing this

 

Chicken in the corn

And the corn can’t grow, mamma

When chicken in the corn

Say the corn can’t grow

When chicken in the corn

Say the corn can’t grow

When chicken in the corn

Say the corn can’t grow

 

Don’t need to brag

No need to boast

I can rock you from a pillow

To post to post

When the music’s nice

We play them twice

While the girls are screaming out like mice

My name is Brushy

I’m the king of swing

To rap your music

And to let you sing

It doesn’t really matter what the people wanna say

I rap my music night and day

Rock them night and day

 

My mama hear me sing!

Chicken in the corn

And the corn can’t grow, mamma

When chicken in the corn

Say the corn can’t grow

When chicken in the corn

Say the corn can’t grow, mamma

When chicken in the corn

Say the corn can’t grow

 

Chicken in the corn

And the corn can’t grow, mamma

When chicken in the corn

Say the corn can’t grow

When chicken in the corn

Say the corn can’t grow, mamma

When chicken in the corn

Say the corn can’t grow

 

Don’t need to brag

No need to boast

I can rock you from a pillow

To post to post

When the music’s nice

We play them twice

While the girls are screaming out like mice

My name is Brushy

I’m the king of swing

To rap your music

And to let you sing

It doesn’t really matter what the people wanna say

I rap my music night and day

Rock them night and day.

And Luci hear me say!

 

Chicken in the corn

And the corn can’t grow, mamma

When chicken in the corn

Say the corn can’t grow

When chicken in the corn

Say the corn can’t grow, mamma

When chicken in the corn

Say the corn can’t grow

 

When chicken in the…

When chicken in the…

Corn can’t grow

When chicken in the…

    Love your sound!!! Great find by listening to Miami radio station WDNA.
    Just ordered two CD’s, one for me and one as a gift.
    All the best to you and I look forward to a performance in Miami.
    A nice platform for you is the Miami Light Project. We have a large following and
    they bring performers from all over the world for sold out concerts.
