Ball and Chain
Janis Joplin
(Please take the accuracy of these lyrics with a grain of salt. Janis
is a pretty hard chic to understand.)
Sitting down by my window
Looking at the rain
Send a bomb in my world of night air
All around I felt it
All I could see was the rain
Something grabbed a hold of me honey
Felt to me, honey like a ball and chain
You know what I mean
Say whoah...honey, this can't be
Just because I got to want your love, please...leave me be
Whoah...honey, this can't be
Just because I got to need ya daddy
Please don't ya let me down now
Honey, I wanted to love ya

Whoah...honey, just can't be
I wonder if someone...if they could tell me
Tell me why
Just because I got to want your love
Honey, just because I got to need, need, need your love
I say, I don't understand
Honey, when I wanna try and say hi
Try, try, try, try, try, try, try...
Honey, when everybody in the world wants the same damn thing
When everybody in the world, who needs the same lone thing
When I wanna work for your love daddy
When I wanna try for you love daddy
I don't understand, how come, your gone, man
I don't understand why half the world is still crying, man
When the other half the world is still crying too, man
I mean, if you gotta care for one day, man
Say, maybe, you wanna care for 365 days, right?
You ain't got it for 365 days, man
You got it for one day, man
Well, I'll tell you that one day, man, better be your life, man
Because you know, you can say Oh Man,
you can cry about the other 364
But your gonna lose that one day, man
And that's all you got
You gotta call that love, man.
That's what it is.
If you got it today, you don't wear it tomorrow
Cause you don't need it
As a matter of fact, as we discovered on the train,
tomorrow never happens.
It's all the same fucking day, man.
So you gotta, when you wanna hold somebody
You gotta hold em like it's the last minute of your life
You gotta hold.........................
Holy...Cause some day some weight gonna come on your shoulders babe
and Chain.
