Shackles and Chains
On a long, lonesome journey I'm going
Now darling please don't you cry
For in shackles and chains they will take me
To a prison to stay until I die.
And at night through the bars
I will gaze at the stars
And I long for your kisses in vain
A piece of stone I will use for my pillow
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.
