He Had a Long Chain On

This song is by Odetta and appears on the album At Town Hall (1962).

One night as I lay on my pillow
Moonlight as bright as the dawn
I saw a man come a walkin'
'N he had a long chain on

He had a long chain on
He had a long chain on
He had a long chain on

I took him into my kitchen
I gave him a bowl full of meat
A drink and a bite of cold biscuits
Well that's what I gave him to eat

He had a long chain on
He had a long chain on
He had a long chain on

When he had finished his supper
Thanked me again and again
Though it's been years since I've seen him
I still hear him draggin' those chains

He had a long chain on
He had a long chain on
He had a long chain on
