Ah, The Band. Never did get to see them live. I'd seen a post on a song here on Pandora. The username was Aging-Hippie . Excellent! About how I feel these days. Mention The Band to people, they say What band?.
I researched who the chicken man really was.I know do you?
Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day if your life. However if you don't post this you will die in 2 days. Now you started reading this so don't stop. This is so scary put this on 5 songs in 143 minutes. When done press f6 and your lovers name will appear in big letters this is so scary because it actually works.
Love this song . If you don't tap your feet to this one you must be half dead. This song makes me happy---just love it.
Great song!! Gotta love the band
I feel you chicken man!!!!!
Seriously does anyone else feel for this poor fool chicken man?
POOR CHICKEN MAN!! Chicken man doesn't come back if he dies, that's a fact.
This is my second favorite version of the song. Greensky bluegrass does an amazing rendition. I have to say works better with a bluegrass type of feel but thank you Springsteen for makin this song happen!
First time hearing this...nice. No need to pick winner between the two versions. Both great

I don't think everything should have to be a competition.

The best part of this song is Rick Danko's backing vocals. His voice is so perfect and heartfelt. And while I live the original Bruce version, this one takes the cake.

Bruce's voice is better for this song and his singing has more of a beat and flow
Hard to believe this is the cover
I love to listen to different versions of the same song and without taking anything away from Bruce's original, I find this version to be amazing. Hadn't even heard of the band "The Band" before this song. Awesome rendition.

I like the grit of Springsteen' s original version. Nebraska was so dark and personal and tragic. Even the live electric version he rolled out about 2000 was dark and gritty. This version is obviously lighter, makes the subect seem more trivial. Not bad musically, but I prefer Springsteen' s original intent.
maybe the main highlight of Jericho, first one I've heard on here from The Album. Nice selection. Country Rock Gamblin' music.

I think you have to look at the Springsteen version in the whole context of the Nebraska album. Kinda one man alone with some cut rate recording equipment just recording his thoughts and pain. It is more intense and personal than this version.
I like this one better than the the Springsteen too. Bruce's doesn't flow like this one, and a lot of the lyrics feel forced.
Garth sounds great on this. Often overlooked, but essential piece of the Band's unique sound.
soooooooooo right im sure bruce loves it
I prefer this version to the Original. The lyrics come through much better, and it has a swampy, earthy feel to it.
does this song pre-date springsteen? heard him do a version of this song on a pete seeger tribute album a while ago...
this song bites
They're still great 30 years later
Usually originals are best but The Band blows Springsteen out of the water on this one

This is Springsteen' s song from his 1982 Nebraska album. This cover version is from 1993.
And it is accurate about the murder of an important Philly Mafia guy. The "rules" say you can't use bombs. This one may have been done with a contract to Bikers?? Definetly one that would engender rivers of blood.
A great song, I like this version better than Springsteen' s .

This is a cover of Bruce's original done by Levon Helm - not The Band.
bruce actually did it first. both versions are so different but still amazing in their own right.
I thought this was a Springsteen tune, but obviously the Band did this before Springsteen. What an amazing collection of musicians they were.
