Chicken Hearted
Recorded by Jim Reeves
Written by Jim Reeves, Al Courtney & Macy Lela Henry
G 
It seems you’re always  
D7 
wondering 
 
why
 
With love you can’t get  
G 
started
 
Come and let me  
D7 
tell you why
 
You’re to chicken  
G 
hearted
 
I  
C 
know you have a yen for men
 
But  
G 
you’re afraid you’ll offend
 
Some  
A7 
old time tried and true blue friend
D7 
Then you’d be all alone again
G 
Somehow you just don’t  
D7 
seem to know
 
The very thing that  
G 
you let go
 
Is just the thing that  
D7 
you love so
 
You’re to chicken  
G 
hearted
 
You just can’t be to  
D7 
shy and weak
 
And soft hearted  
G 
so to speak
 
Forget the things you  
D7 
did last week
 
Cause that’s being chicken  
G 
hearted
 
I  
C 
know you’d like to say so long
 
To  
G 
things that you’ve done wrong
A7 
Find yourself a brand new love
D7 
To make your heart go bong
G 
I sometimes wonder  
D7 
what you’d do
 
If someone should  
G 
say to you
 
Just let’s pitch a  
D7 
little 
 
woo
 
You’re to chicken  
G 
hearted
Repeat last two verses
