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
   D7                            G
Oh my sweet little darling don't cry
For in shackles and chains they will take me
     D7                    G
To a prison to live till I die
And each night through the bars I will gaze at the stars
   D7                        G
My dreams dear for you so in vain
A piece of stone I will use for my pillow
          D7                       G
While I'm sleeping in shackles and chains
Put your arms through these bars once more darling
      D7                            G
Let me kiss those sweet lips I love best
In sorrow they were my consolation
    D7                      G
And in sadness my heaven of rest

Classic Country Music Lyrics home | Stonewall Jackson lyrics

I love Stonewall Jackson's music, does he have a pretty voice, no, but it's well suited for the songs he recorded. This one is a perfect example of him matching his voice to a song, it's done in 3/4 time with simple chords. His music is better for guys like me that's not a gifted picker or vocalist but have a passion for country music. Copy and paste Shackles and Chains lyrics and chords so you can learn to pick and sing this fun classic.
