Ball and Chain




Be careful with your hobbies they may define you someday
Hold on to some of your stories save just a few from the sound waves

God bless the man behind the microphone
God damn that silver ball and chain

What does it mean to be honest when the audience decides what you mean?
Some do it for fame, some do it for glory, some days I miss playing the street

God bless the man behind the microphone
God damn that silver ball and chain

If you couldn’t get anyone to listen would you finish what you began?
I refuse to be letters on a marquee, refuse to be buried on that bandstand

God bless the man behind the microphone
God damn that silver ball and chain
