WA-CHIC-KA-NOKA
(Love - Numm - Cottle)
TOMMY HOLMES (CHERRY 112/3, 1960)

I was ridin' down the road for my sunday drive
I saw a sign that said, man burried alive
What's the expression, to settle and sakes
The sign just said, man burried with snakes
Wa-wa-chic-ka-noka, wa-wa-chic-ka-noka
Wa-chic-ka-noka, man burried alive

Reporters were there from miles around
To write the story of the man in the ground
He's not afraid of the danger he's in
He wants it known, the snakes are his best friend
Wa-wa-chic-ka-noka, wa-wa-chic-ka-noka
Wa-chic-ka-noka, man burried alive

There's an Indian legend that says to believe
That a man this brave can be a chief
With this legend I have to agree
That they could never make a chief of me
Wa-wa-chic-ka-noka, wa-wa-chic-ka-noka
Wa-chic-ka-noka, man burried alive

A copperhead and a rattlesnake
It's a thing I know I couldn't take
Saw this cat, he's real keen
It's the craziest thing that I've ever seen
Wa-wa-chic-ka-noka, wa-wa-chic-ka-noka
Wa-chic-ka-noka, man burried alive
Wa-chic-ka-noka, man burried alive
Wa-chic-ka-noka, man burried alive
