(Lebon, Rhodes, Cuccurullo, Taylor)

Early Morning
As the day is dawning
You're street gutter crawling
When the sun comes up

Baby Crying
Says today she's dying
But she's always lying
And that's a ball'n'chain

You got the ball'n'chain
You're in the ball'n'chain gang
Coz you're the ball'n'chain man

Bruises for breakfast
Ain't nobody's business
But pain's a lonely mistress
And you can't give up
(That's a ball'n'chain)

Flame burning
Money that you're earning
And you will be returning
With a ball'n'chain

[Chorus:]

Why do you love me
When you don't need me
Why do you want me all of the time?
In my whole life, didn't get no peacetime
And I don't care if I live or die

(that's a ball'n'chain)

You got the ball'n'chain
You got the ball'n'chain
You got the ball'n'chain
You got the ball'n'chain
You got the ball'n'chain
You got the ball'n'chain
You got the ball'n'chain

You got the Ball'n'Chain
You're the one to blame
You got to love that pain
