Well it's been 10 years and a thousand tears and look at the mess I'm in
C                           G              F            C
A broken nose and a broken heart and an empty bottle of gin
C                    G             F              C
Well I sit and I pray, in my broken down Chevrolet...
C                      G             F               C
and I'm singing to myself, there's got to be another way

Take away, take away, take away this ball and chain,
C                         G            F              C
cause I'm sick and I'm tired, and I can't take anymore pain,
C                G           F           C
Take away, take away, never to return again

Take away, take away, take away, hey....  Take away this ball and chain

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


I passed the bar on the way, to my dingy hotel room
I spent all of my money, I been drinkin since half passed noon
Well I'll wake there in the morning, or maybe in the county jail
Times are hard, getting harder, I'm born to lose, and destined to fail
