(GUITAR INTRO)

My aunt Jessie was cruel

Lord, she made me go to school

All the time

It was killing me

It was a crime

Cause I could not be free

From the confines

Of those chains



Oh the river was deep

But the water looked sweet

Oh my, my, my

I jumped right in

You know I tried

But I could not swim

Thru the darkness or the pain



Never thought I'd breakaway from those chains

Never thought Id' breakaway from those chains

Never thought Id' breakaway from those chains

Never thought Id' breakaway from those chains

(short SLIDE SOLO)



So I headed for the hills

Let the danger break my will

Oh my, my

In a landslide

I was losing ground

And there was no one but myself to blame



Never thought I'd breakaway from those chains

Never thought I'd breakaway from those chains

Never thought I'd breakaway from those chains

Noo, no, no, I'd breakaway from those chains

(SLIDE SOLO)



Breakaway from those chains

Breakaway from those chains

Breakaway from those chains

Breakaway from those chains

Breakaway from those chains

Breakaway from those chains
