Shackles and Chains (Jimmie Davis) G C On a long, lonesome journey I'm going D7 G Now darling please don't you cry C For in shackles and chains they will take me D7 G To a prison to stay until I die. (Chorus) G And at night through the bars C I will gaze at the stars D7 G And I long for your kisses in vain C Am A piece of stone I will use for my pillow D7 G While I'm sleeping in shackles and chains. Put your arm through the bars once my darling Let me kiss those sweet lips that I love best For in heartaches you're my consolation And in misery my haven of rest. BJS
