Little Red Rooster

Some time ago I heard a long version of "Little Red Rooster". One of the verses went something like . . .
"I want my red rooster back. Went looking for him in my Cadillac."
I'd like to get the CD, but I don'tknow the artist or the album. I'll be grateful to anyone who can help me
out. Thanks.

[updated:LAST EDITED ON Aug-12-05 AT 00:07 AM (EST)]OK . . . these are the lyrics (as close as I can get 'em). I'm looking for the artist and album.

Little Red Rooster

I got a little red rooster too lazy to crow for day x2
He keeps everything in the barn yard upset in every way.

The dogs begin to bark the hounds begin to howl x2
Watch out all you kin folk my little red rooster’s on the prowl.
Now if you see my little red rooster please send him home to me x2
I had no peace in the barnyard since the red rooster been away.

I want my rooster. I want him back. Going looking for him in my Cadillac.
Going to dig down deep until my fingers bleed. Keys to the highway
That be all I need. You can’t hide him. You can’t secret him away.
You know I want my rooster. I’m going need him someday

I want my rooster. I’m going to find him still. I left him in the back of my
Coupe Deville w/ two pawn shop mandolins, a bamboo flute, two shoes from
Natchez, and a pinstripe suit. The doors were open, both windows was down.
You know I might still have him if I hadn’t parked right here in town
yes parked in town

Well you can steal my windows. You can rob my floors, take all the struts
out till there ain’t no house no more, rain on my garden till the sod runs
away, give me back my rooster I’m going to need him someday.
You can’t hide him. You can’t secret him away. You know I want
My rooster. I’m going to need him back someday

I want my rooster. I want him back. Going looking for him in my
Cadillac. I’m going to reach out to you down this R.R road track.
Going to stand right here till my rooster comes back. You can’t
Hide him you can’t secret him away. You know I want my rooster
I’m going to need him someday
