6x D A G D

4x D A G D

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

3x D A G D

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 1x D A G (let G ring) Take away, take away Take away this ball and chain

2x D A G D

4x D A G D

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 D A G D

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 1x D A G (let G ring) Take away, take away Take away this ball and chain

2x D A G D

4x D A G D

4x D A G D

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 D A G D

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 1x D A G (let G ring) Take away, take away Take away this ball and chain
