Shackles and Chains
On a long lonesome journey I'm going Oh darling, and please don't you cry Though in shackles and chains they will take me In prison to stay till I die And at night through the bars, I 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 arms through these bars once, my darlin' Let me kiss those sweet lips that I love best In heartache, you're my consolation In sorrow, my haven of rest And at night through the bars, I will gaze at the stars The plans that we made were in vain A piece of stone I will use as my pillow While I'm sleeping in shackles and chains
