Woke up this morning 
After another one of those crazy dreams 
Oh nothing is going right this morning 
The whole world is wrong it seems 
Oh I guess it's the chain that bind me 
I can't shake it loose these chains and things 
Got to work this morning 
Seems like everything is lost 
I got a cold hearted wrong doing woman 
And a slave driving ball 
I can't loose these chains that bind me 
Can't shake them loose these chains and things 
Just can't loose these chains and things 
Well you talk about hard luck and trouble 
Seems to be my middle name 
All the odds are against me 
Yes I can only play a losing game 
These chains that bind me 
Can't lose these chains and things 
Just can't loose these chains and things 
Oh I would pack up and leave today people 
But I ain't got nowhere to go 
Ain't got money to buy a ticket 
And I don't feel like walking anymore 
These chains that bind me 
I can't lose 
I can't lose these chains and things
