  • Both arms hangin' from the ball and chain
    Tongue tied and twisted from braidin' the rope
    Both arms hangin' from this faded hope
    Both arms hangin' from this faded hope

    Heard it in a whisper
    Heard it from a jailor's song
    Packed it in a suitcase
    Lost it halfway 'round the world

    Out beyond harm's way you gave a lift
    Past the shipyard and the empty pit
    And you saif that my cover was already blown
    And one too many is the one I've known
    And one too many is the one I've known

    Heard it in a whisper
    Heard it from a jailor's song
    Packed it in a suitcase
    Lost it halfway 'round the world

    Oh, I wish you wary and I wish you wise
    And then of course I wish you well
    Rode into town on the back of surprise
    And then of course I laughed like hell
    And then of course I laughed like hell

    Oh, I wish you wary and I wish you wise
    Drove into town on the back of surprise

    Oh, I wish you wary and I wish you wise
    Then of course I wish you well
    Rode into town on the back of surprise
    And then of course I laughed like hell
    And then of course I laughed like hell
