    Lyrics

    Sittin' down by my window,
    Just lookin' out at the rain, at the rain
    I said I'm sittin' down by my window,
    Just lookin' out at the rain.
    You know somethin' came along, grabbed a hold of me,
    Felt just like a ball and chain.

    And I say, oh, oh, oh, hon',
    Why does every thing go wrong ?
    It all goes wrong.
    And I say, oh, now tell me why,
    Does every thing go wrong, all wrong.
    Say, here you gone today, an' I wanted to love you
    For so long.

    Love's got a hold on me, baby,
    Feels just like a ball and chain, hmm hmm hmm.
    Oh, love's got a hold on me, baby,
    Feels just like a ball and chain.
    And I don't know why the man I'm lovin'
    Wanna leave me in so much pain.

    And I say, oh oh oh, hon', tell me why,
    Tell me why, tell me why, oh tell me why, why, why.
    And I say, oh, honey why, why, oh why, tell me why.
    I thought our love would last
    Honey, gonna last, last
    Till the day I die.

    And I say oh, whoa, whoa, hon'
    It ain't fair, it ain't fair what you can do,
    What you can do, Lord.
    And I say oh whoa,
    Lord, it ain't fair, it ain't fair what you can do, Lord, you can do.
    Oh suddenly you broke my heart
    Oh when I was givin' my love to you.

    Sittin' down by my window,
    Just lookin' out at the rain.
    I said I'm sittin' down by my window,
    Just lookin' out at the rain.
    Somethin' came along, grabbed a hold of me,
    Felt just like a ball and chain.

    And I say oh, hon this can't be
    This can't be all in vain, no, no, no.
    And I say whoa, whoa, this can't be,
    Honey, it can't be all in vain,
    Hope there is someone that could tell me
    Hon', tell me why love is like
    A ball and chain.
