"Chicken Shack Boogie" is a 1948 jump-boogie style song by West Coast blues artist Amos Milburn. It was the first of four number-one hits on the R&B chart by Milburn. It was the B-side of a 78 RPM single, the A-side of which, "It Took a Long, Long Time", reached number nine on the same chart.
In 1956, Milburn released "Chicken Shack", a faster rock and roll version of the song (subsequently included on his 1957 album Let's Have a Party). This version runs about 2:30 and is sometimes titled "Chicken Shack Boogie" when reissued on compilations. This version includes Earl Palmer on drums.
