letra de ball & chain – paul overstreet

back when we made our plans to tie the knot
my friends, they all laughed at me a lot
slapped my back and told me how they thought i was insane
they said, son you’re too young to wear that ball and chain

but love don’t feel like a ball and chain to me
when i’m close to you, my heart feels wild and free
if you are my jailer, darlin’ throw away the key
love don’t feel like a ball and chain to me

love don’t feel like a ball and chain
it don’t feel like a ball and chain
love don’t feel like a ball and chain to me

i still see my single friends from time to time
and they ask me how it feels to walk the line
well, i tell them it feels better than i ever dreamed it would
i wouldn’t trade places with them even if i could

but love don’t feel like a ball and chain to me
when i’m close to you my heart feels wild and free
if you are my jailer darlin’ throw away the key
love don’t feel like a ball and chain to me

well, if it is a crime for a man to love his wife
throw that old book at me, give me 99 to life
i’ll spend every minute, every hour, every day
holding you close, i don’t want to get away

love don’t feel like a ball and chain to me
when i’m close to you my heart feels wild and free
if you are my jailer darlin’ throw away the key
love don’t feel like a ball and chain to me

love don’t feel like a ball and chain to me
