VERSE 1
             D                    A
  Well, it's been ten years and a thousand tears.
      G                    D
  And look at the mess I'm in.
    D                  A                    G               D
  A broken nose, and a broken heart, and an empty bottle of gin.
          D         A          G        D
  Well, I sit and I pray in my '54 Chevrolet.
      D          A               G                 D
  I'm singing to myself, there's got to be another way.

CHORUS
       D          A          G                  D 
  Take away, take away, take away this ball and chain.
            D              A            G                  D
  Well, I'm lonely and I'm tired, and I can't take anymore pain.
       D          A           G           D
  Take away, take away, never to return again.
       D         A         G
  Take away, take away, take away__________________.
                                    D A G D
  Take away this ball and chain.

VERSE 2 (same chords)
  Well, I searched and I searched to find the perfect life.
  A brand new car, 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 never go anywhere.

CHORUS (same chords and words)

SOLO (same as above, exclude last bar, play second last twice)

VERSE 3 (same chords)
  Well, I pass the bar on the way to my dingy hotel room.
  I spent all my money, I've been drinkin' since half past noon.
  Will I wake there in the morning?  Or maybe in the county jail?
  Times are hard, getting harder, I'm born to lose, destined to fail.
