Shackles And Chains

This song is by Calvin Russell and appears on the album Soldier (1992) and on the album A Man in Full (2004).

On this long and lonesome journey
I am going
But sweet little darlin'
Don't you cry
In shackles and chains they will
Take me
To the prison till the day that
I die
And each night through the bars
I will gaze at the stars
My dreams dear of you
Will be in vain
This piece of stone I use for my pillow
While I'm sleepin' in my
Shackles and chains

...

So put your arms through these bars
Once more baby
I want to kiss those sweet lips
I love best
In my sorrow they've been consolation
And in sadness my haven of rest
And each night through the bars
I will gaze at these stars
And my dreams dear of you
They'll be in vain
This piece of stone I had to use for my pillow
While I'm sleeping in my
Shackles and chains

...

And each night through the bars
I will gaze at the stars
My dreams dear of you
Will be in vain
This piece of stone I use for my pillow
While I'm sleepin' in my
Shackles and chains

While I'm sleepin' in my
Shackles and chains

While I'm sleepin' in my
Shackles and chains
