Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Tuned half step down, or full D with capo on first fret

6x D A G D

4x D A G D
Well it's been ten years and a thousand tears
 And look at the mess I'm in-
A broken nose and a broken heart,
 An empty bottle of gin
Well I sit and I pray
 In my broken down Chevrolet-
While I'm singin' to myself
 There's got to be another way

3x D A G D
Take a way, take away,
 Take away this ball and chain
I'm lonely and I'm tired
 And I can't take any more pain
Take away, take away
 Never to return again
1x D A G (let G ring)
Take away, take away
 (music pauses)
 Take away this ball and chain

2x D A G D

4x D A G D
Well I've searched and I've searched
 To find the perfect life-
A brand new car and a brand new suit
 I even got me a little wife-
But wherever I have gone
 I was sure to find myself there-
You can run all your life
 But not go anywhere

3x D A G D
Take a way, take away,
 Take away this ball and chain
I'm sick and I'm tired
 And I can't take any more pain
Take away, take away
 Never to return again
1x D A G (let G ring)
Take away, take away
 (music pauses)
 Take away this ball and chain

2x D A G D

(solo)
4x D A G D

4x D A G D
Well I'll pass the bar on the way
 To my dingy hotel room-
I spent all my money
 Been drinkin' since half past noon-
I'll wake there in the mornin'
 Or maybe in the county jail-
Times are hard getting harder
 I'm born to lose and destined to fail-

3x D A G D
Take a way, take away,
 Take away this ball and chain
I'm lonely and I'm tired
 And I can't take any more pain
Take away, take away
 Never to return again
1x D A G (let G ring)
Take away, take away
 (music pauses)
 Take away this ball and chain

2x D A G D

(outro)
4x D A G D
