ball and chain
early morning 
as the day is dawning 
you're street gutter crawling 
when the sun comes up 

baby crying 
says today she's dying 
but she's always lying 
and that's a ball and chain 

you got the ball and chain 
you're in the ball and chain gang 
cuz you're the ball and chain man 

bruises for breakfast 
ain't nobody's business 
but pain's a lonely mistress 
and you can't give up 
(that's a ball and chain) 

flame burning 
money that you're earning 
and you will be returning 
with a ball and chain 

you got the ball and chain 
you're in the ball and chain gang 
cuz you're the ball and chain man 

why do you love me 
when you don't need me 
why do you want me all of the time? 
in my whole life, didn't get no peacetime 
and i don't care if i live or die 

(that's a ball and chain) 

you got the ball and chain 

you got the ball and chain 
you're the one to blame 
you got to love that pain
