Notes: "The story of my old rooster" by Yvon Mimeault from his CD "Y'etait temps". This is a Quebecois tune that is played often in the Olympia session. According to the story, when Yvon was young he walked across the farmyard and was attacked by the old rooster. Yvon, with injured leg and pride, pulls out his sling-shot and faces the rooster. As the beast turns its head sideways to look him in the eye — roosters turn sideways for a face to face — Yvon takes a shot. The bird, hit in the head, falls to the ground. Yvon, after making sure nobody saw him, leans it against a fence where he can discretely keep an eye on it. After a while, the rooster, who was only knocked out, gets up and staggers back to the henhouse, to the relief of Yvon. The next morning, as usual, the old rooster hopped on a fence to wake up the whole farm, but he was now singing out of tune.
