Ball & Chain 	  	 Jackson Taylor/ Jason Bolland
Intro: 	 D  / 	 A   / 	 G   / 	 D  /  X  4

D 	     /               A 	                  G 	 / 	   D /
Well it's been 10 years and a thousand tears, 	 look at the mess I'm in
D 	 /             A / 	  G 	  /          D /
I got a busted head and a broken noise, an empty bottle of Gin
D 	 /       A 	 /    G   /    D   /      
Well I sit here and I pray, in my '64 Chevrolet
D 	 /      A   / 	      G 	 / 	D   / 
And I think to myself lord, there's got to be a better way

Chorus
D   / 	   A 	 / 	 G 	  	 /   D
Take away, take away,  	 take away this Ball & Chain 
D 	 / 	    A 	 / 	    G 	           D  /
'cause I'm lonely and I'm tired and I can't take anymore pain
D     /  A 	 / 	 G 	 /      D   /
Take away, take away,  	 never to return again
D    / 	  A 	 / 	      G ~	  N/C	     
Take away, take away, 	 Take away…Take away this Ball & Chain

D 	 / 	 A 	 / 	 G 	 / 	 D 	 /

D  / 	          A 	 / 	 G      /                  D   / 	 
Well I searched,  	 and I searched,  	 to try to find me a perfect life
D    / 	                       A 	         /          G 	      /     D /
I got some brand new boots,    a brand new hat.   I even got a pretty little wife
D 	 / 	   A 	 / 	  G 	 /               D 	 
But no matter where I go, 	  	  I'm sure to find myself there.
D 	 / 	   	   A 	 /          G 	 /      D /	 
You can search and search your whole lifetime and never go anywhere  

Chorus
D   / 	   A 	 / 	 G 	  	 /   D
Take away, take away,  	 take away this Ball & Chain 
D 	 / 	    A 	 /      G 	           D  /
'cause I'm lonely and I'm tired and I can't take anymore pain
D     /  A 	 / 	 G 	 /      D   /
Take away, take away,  	 never to return again
D    / 	  A 	 / 	      G  ~   	 N/C   
Take away, take away, 	 Take away…Take away this Ball & Chain

Solo: 	 D  / 	 A / 	 G  / 	 D  /  X  4

D 	 / 	  	A   / 	 G 	 /  D 	 / 	 
Well I passed a bar on the way to my dingy motel room
D 	 /       A / 	   G 	 / 	  	 D  /
Spent all my money, I've been drinking since half past noon 
D 	  / 	     A 	 /      G 	 / 	D    /
Well I wake up in the morning, or maybe in the county jail
D     / 	  A 	 / 	 G 	 / 	                      D  /
Well times are tough,getting tougher.I've more to lose and I'm just bound to fell 

Chorus
D   / 	   A 	 / 	 G 	  	 /   D
Take away, take away,  	 take away this Ball & Chain 
D 	 / 	    A 	 / 	 G 	           D  /
'cause I'm lonely and I'm tired and I can't take anymore pain
D     /  A 	 / 	 G 	 /      D   /
Take away, take away,  	 never to return again
D    / 	  A 	 / 	      G	 ~ 	  	 N/C   
Take away, take away, 	 Take away. . . Take away this Ball & Chain

D  / 	 A  / 	 G  / 	 D 	 /  X  2  	 SLOWLY

This one line up better than the 2nd one. I went back in and tried to correct it as much as possible. I hope y'all enjoy. Long Live Texas.. : )

great song man. it sounds good. Is there any way that you could tab out that outro they play i think i have it close but somethings not right

Sorry, I havent got to it yet. It sounds like some basic Pentatonic scales being played. I would improvise it because it doesnt qualify as a signature lick that makes the song, in my opinion.
