Shackles and Chains recorded by Stonewall Jackson [3/4 time] written by Wayne P. Walker and Irene Stanton G
C On a long lonesome journey I am going
G Oh my sweet little darling don't cry
C For in shackles and chains they will take me
G To a prison to live till I die
C And each night through the bars I will gaze at the stars
G My dreams dear for you so in vain
C A piece of stone I will use for my pillow
G While I'm sleeping in shackles and chains
C Put your arms through these bars once more darling
G Let me kiss those sweet lips I love best
C In sorrow they were my consolation
G And in sadness my heaven of rest

it's well suited for the songs he recorded. This one is a perfect
