SHACKLED AND CHAINED TO A WORK GANG

JAMES NUNALLY

CHORUS
SHACKLED AND CHAINED TO A WORK GANG
THAT'S HOW I SPEND MY TIME
HOEIN' AND A SHOVELIN, SLINGIN' AND A CHOPPIN' EVER DAY FROM 5 TO 5
YEAH THAT'S HOW I SPEND MY TIME
EVERY SINGLE DAY, FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE
SHACKLED AND CHAINED TO A WORK GANG

VERSE 1
WHEN I WAS A YOUNGER MAN, I THOUGHT I HAD A PLAN
I COULD RUN ANY SCHEME OF ABOUT ANYTHING
BUT THEY CAUGHT UP WITH ME
AND WITH NO PLACE FOR MY SPREES
HERE I'LL WASTE MY LIFE AWAY
SHACKLED AND CHAINED TO A WORK GANG

CHORUS

VERSE 2
IF I COULD TURN BACK THE HANDS OF TIME
I'D FLY AWAY FROM THIS CELL
I'D SET A STRAIGHT PATH, DO AS THEY ASK
AND LIVE A LIFE AWAY FROM THIS HELL
BUT THAT'S JUST ANOTHER DREAM
AND HERE I'LL TOIL MY LIFE AWAY
SHACKLED AND CHAINED TO A WORK GANG

CHORUS
