If I had my way
I would not be here
Not for one day
My leaving is clear

I've had my share
Of heartache and pain
For happiness
I'm searching in vain
I've got to get rid
Of my ball and chain

For all of my life
The times they've been bad
And hard luck and strife
They're all I've ever had

I've had my share
Of heartache and pain
For happiness
I'm searching in vain
I've got to get rid
Of my ball and chain

I've just got to be free

God in heaven, help me

If I had my way
I would not, would not be here
No, not for one day
My leaving, my leaving is clear

I've had my share
Of heartache and pain
For happiness
I'm searching in vain
I've got to get rid
Of my ball and chain
Help me!

I've had my share
Of heartache and pain
For happiness
I'm searching in vain
I've got to get rid
Of my ball and chain
