Lyrics Ball and Chain

Sitting down by my window honey, looking out at the rain
Lord, Lord, Lord sitting down by my window oh baby, looking out at the rain
Something came along grabbed a hold of me
And it felt just like a ball and chain
Honey, that's exactly what it felt like honey, just dragging me down
And I say oh, whoa, whoa, whoa now hun, tell me why
Why does every single little tiny thing I ever hold on to go so wrong? yeah it all goes wrong, yeah
And I say oh, whoa, whoa, whoa now people, tell me
Why does every thing every thing
Hey, here you gone today
I wanted to love you
I just wanted to hold you
I said, for so long
Yeah, alright, hey
Love's got a hold on me, baby feels just like a ball and chain
Now love, love's just dragging me down, baby feels like a ball and chain
I hope there's someone there that could tell me
Why the man I love would want to leave me in so much pain
Yeah, maybe maybe you could help me come on, help me
And I say oh, whoa, whoa, whoa now hun, tell me why
Now tell me, tell me, tell me tell me, tell me, yeah yeah yeah oh why, yeah
And I say whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa when I ask you
When I need to know why come on tell me why hey hey why, hey hey hey hey
Here you've gone today
I wanted to love you and hold you 'till the day I die
I said whoa, whoa, whoa
And I say oh whoa, whoa, whoa, now honey it ain't fair, no daddy it ain't fair what you do
I see honey what you're doing to me and you know it ain't fair
And I say whoa, whoa whoa whoa now baby, it ain't fair now, now, now, what you do
I said honey it ain't fair no honey it ain't fair what you do
Oh, here you gone today and all I ever wanted to do was to love you
Honey I just know there can be nothing wrong with that honey it ain't wrong no, no, no, no, no
Sitting down by the window looking at the rain
Lord, Lord, Lord sitting down by the window
Looking at the rain see the rain
Something came along grabbed a hold of me
And it felt like a ball and chain oh yes that's it babe
And I'mma tell you this one more time yeah, yeah
And I say oh, whoa whoa whoa now baby, this can't be
I know this can't be in vain and I say no no no no no no no no, whoa
And I say whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa whoa
