Ball And Chain Chords

   
I have seen this so many times as D A G D....but if you listen and play with the 
song it has to be C# G# F# C# in a standard tune. So here it is!! Played in the 
same tune as Social Distortion!!!



(intro)  2x C#  G#  F#  C#         (solo) with 4x C#  G#  F#  C#

     C#                                  G#
Well it's been ten years and a thousand tears
   F#                                     C#
 And look at the mess I'm in-
   C#                                  G#
A broken nose and a broken heart,
   F#                                     C#
An empty bottle of gin
C#                                  G#
Well I sit and I pray
   F#                                     C#
 In my broken down Chevrolet-
C#                                  G#
While I'm singin' to myself
F#                                     C#
 There's got to be another way

3x C#  G#  F#  C#
Take a way, take away,
 Take away this ball and chain
I'm lonely and I'm tired
 And I can't take any more pain
Take away, take away
 Never to return again
                         (let F# ring)
Take away, take away
 (music pauses)
 Take away this ball and chain

2x C#  G#  F#  C#

4x C#  G#  F#  C#
Well I've searched and I've searched
 To find the perfect life-
A brand new car and a brand new suit
 I even got me a little wife-
But wherever I have gone
 I was sure to find myself there-
You can run all your life
 But not go anywhere


3x C#  G#  F#  C#
Take a way, take away,
 Take away this ball and chain
I'm sick and I'm tired
 And I can't take any more pain
Take away, take away
 Never to return again
                     (let F# ring)
Take away, take away
 (music pauses)
 Take away this ball and chain

2x C#  G#  F#  C#

(solo) with 4x C#  G#  F#  C#


4x C#  G#  F#  C#
Well I'll pass the bar on the way
 To my dingy hotel room-
I spent all my money
 Been drinkin' since half past noon-
I'll wake there in the mornin'
 Or maybe in the county jail-
Times are hard getting harder
 I'm born to lose and destined to fail-

3x C#  G#  F#  C#
Take a way, take away,
 Take away this ball and chain
I'm lonely and I'm tired
 And I can't take any more pain
Take away, take away
 Never to return again
                    (let F# ring)
Take away, take away
 (music pauses)
 Take away this ball and chain



(outro)
4x C#  G#  F#  C#
