Ball and Chain

By Oak House Music
Verse 1
Born in small town - didn’t even have a name
If ever there was trouble, there was no-one else to blame
Daddy loved the bottle- there was no love left for me
When I left that town at seventeen I threw off that ball and chain.
Verse 2
Set up in the city- found bad company
Another bad decision- wed at twenty three
She loved to gamble. But there was no love left for me
When I left that woman at twenty five I threw off that ball and chain.

Middle Eight
Always on the wrong side, of any side at all
If I didn’t have bad luck, I wouldn’t have no luck at all

Verse 3.
When your friends desert you and your backs against the wall
They never meant to hurt you, but guess who took the fall
I begged the judge for mercy, but there was no love left for me
He said "I don’t deal in mercy son, but I’ll give you a ball and chain"
