Chain Gang
Recorded by Freddie Hart
Written by Harlan Howard

C C# C
(Chain gang chain gang)

F
I was just a kid a roamin' around
G7 C
Travelin' through a little ol' town
F
When a sheriff walked up and said come with me
G7 C
You're broke and son that's vagrancy

F
Just a carefree lad who loved to roam
G7 C
And how I wish that I had stayed at home
F
For the way that I was treated I would rather hang
G7 C
It's no life of living on a chain gang

F C
I dig that ditch chop that corn
G7 C
Curse the day that I was born
F
I believe it's better for a man to hang
G7 C
Than to work like a dog on a chain gang

C# C
(Chain gang chain gang

F
Well the guard stands there with a great big gun
G7 C
I bet he'd love to see me run
F
And I guess I probably will some day
G7 C
I'd rather be dead than to live this way

F
He looks well fed and he’s six feet tall
G7 C
And he's the meanest of us all
F
For he cracks that whip and he swings that cane
G7 C
I reckon the sun must've touched his brain

Repeat #3

C# C
(Chain gang chain gang

F
I gotta gal back home who's true and kind
G7 C
And she's been a waitin' a long long time
F
I wrote and told her forget my name
G7 C
For I'll never lose this chain gang chain

F
To heaven deliver me from this ol’ hole
G7 C
Where a man can lose his mind and soul
F
Where the flesh gets weak and the back gets broke
G7 C
And there’s no cause to laugh and joke

Repeat #3

G7 C
Work like a dog on a chain gang
G7 C
Work like a dog on a chain gang
G7 C
Work like a dog on a chain gang
G7 C
Work like a dog on a chain gang
