Bobby Scott – The Chain Gang lyrics

They put me on the chain gang
Chain gang, chain gang
Working on the chain gang all day
They put me on the chain gang
Chain gang, chain gang
Sweating on the chaing gang every day

I know just where I went wrong
Woman sings a sweet love song
Wanted money, wanted honey
Chain gang

[Repeat chorus]

Late one night, I stole some dough
She took it all and she let me go
Got me stranded, got me branded
Chain gang

[Repeat chorus]

One fine day
Well, they'll set me free
Find a girl who takes to me
Won't be lonely, love me only
Chain gang

[Repeat chorus]

Every day, every day
