Chords and Lyrics

[intro]
 
E    G    E    G
 
[verse 1]
 
   E
   People listen up don't stand to near,
                          B
 Cuz' I got somthing that you all should hear
 
All lies,  All the lies she told me
                      E
Make a little part of history
 
I was always taught that boy meets girl
                               B
Fall in love get married and forget the world
 
Nine month later ,the sweet babys on his way
A
Kiss Em on the cheek and life's ok
E               A     E               A
I don't feel no pain ,I don't have no time
E               A                  B    C
To listen to conflicting points of view
E                     G    B
It's a crazy world to live alone,
E                  G       B                         E  G  E  G
A ball and chain I call my own , budda bup ba bup ba whoooo
 
[verse 2]
 
 
E
People listen up don't stand to close
                        B
I got somthing that you all should know
                                                   E
Holy....matrimony not for me , rather die alone in misery 
 
I was always taught that boy meets girl
                               B
fall in love get married an forget the world
 
Nine months later the sweet babys on the way
A
Isn't that what they used to say
E                    A            E        A
With a girl that you knew and the bonds we grew
E             A        B     C
Turned into a ball and chain
E               G       B
I step into the great unknown
E                  G       B
A ball and chain I call my own,
E
it's a crazy world to live alone

budda bup ba bup ba ...............
 
 
E                    A            E        A
With a girl that you knew and the bonds we grew
E            A        B     C
Turned int o ball and chain
E               G       B
Instep into the great unknown 
E                  G       B
A ball and chain I call my own 
 
 
[verse 3]
 
 
E
Because marriage doesn't work in the world today
                            B
It's an institution that is in decay
 
And if I have love that I wish to portray
                           E
I will surley find another way
 
Because I was always taught that boy meets girl
                                B
Fall in love get married and forget the world
 
Nine months later the sweet baby's on the way
A
Kiss Em on the cheek and life's ok
E               A       E               A
I don't feel no pain ,I don't have know time
E               A                  B    C
To listen to conflicting points of view
E               G       B
I step into the great unknown 
E                       G       B
With a ball and chain I call my own
                    E    G   E   G

Hello dog owners,

I was talking to my friend about dog food the other day…

And it reminded me of something I found amusing:

Over at the local dollar store, there’s a small section of dog treats.

Being the dollar store and all, they’ve got a nice selection of generic,
no-name brand treats.

But what’s great about these treats is that they resemble some kind of
“real” food.

There’s a bag of treats that look like grilled chicken strips,

There are ones that resemble little T-bone steaks,

And my favorite, are the ones that are made to look like little tacos —
with yellow for the shell and brown for the meat.

Now, I’m no Cesar Millan…

But I don’t think dogs really give a ship about what shape their
chewable, chicken by-product is in.

Moral of the story: I have friends.

(okay i made that part up)

But hey, speaking of questionable by-products…

I’ve got 2 new videos to share with you from 2 of my all-time favorite
bands!

Get your priority-access, first-look, before the rest of the internet,
at 2 new covers of:

I Want To Hold Your Hand by The Beatles:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r5pnQiJ84Ro (It’s a short cover cause I
kept on messing up every time I tried to record the full song)

Ball and Chain by Sublime: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wCgSBtZ_glw
(Really decent, lesser-known Sublime song)

Feel free to comment, like it, or hate it.

Thanks,

Daco
