D A G D 2x
D                              A
Well it's been ten years and a thousand tears
    G                         D
And look at the mess that I'm in.
D                   A  
A broken nose and a broken heart
   G               D
An empty bottle of gin
D                A
Well I sit and I pray
      G                 D
In my broken down Chevorlete
D                     A
Well I'm singing to myself, 
        G                 D
There's got to be another way


Chorus

D               A
Take away, take away
     G                  D
Take away this ball and chain
D                       A
Well I'm lonley and I'm tired
      G                  D
And I can't take anymore pain.
D               A
Take away, take away,
G                D
Never to return again.
D     A          G
Take away, take away (hold note on away)
------(no music)------  D      
Take away this ball and chain

        D A G D 2x

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

(Repeat Chorus)

D                            A
Well I passed the bar on the way,
      G           D
To my dingy hotel room.
D                   A
Well I spent all my money
          G                       D
I've been drink'n since half past noon.
D                           A 
Well I'll wake there in the morning
   G                   D
Or maybe in the county jail.
D                       A
Times are hard, getting harder
            G                    D
I'm born to lose and destined to fail

(Repeat Chorus)

Strum D A G D 2x
D     A   G
Take away (hold out note on away)
                        D
Take away this ball and chain.

D A G D 1x
