**normal tuning**

5446 that's my number


    A           D           A          D C

Verse 1(Same pattern as above but just A and D chords)

Do you belive I would take such a thing with me, and give
it to a police man? I wouldn't do that, mmhmm, I wouldn't do that
if I did that would you say "sir come down and put the
charge on me?" I wouldn't do that, oohhh, I wouldn't do that
I'm not a fool to hurt myself, But I was innocent to what they done to me.
they were wrong, they were wrong

A                          D
but give it to me one time (ohh give it to me,yeah!)
                           D  D
give it to me - two times (1, 2)
                           D  D  D          
give it to me three times (1, 2, 3)
                          D  D  D  D
give it to me four times (1, 2, 3, 4)

Verse 2 (Same as above but different rhythm on the A)
Oh, 5446, was my number, was my number now, 
Right now somebody else has that number
(one more time)
5447 was number, was my number now, 
Right now somebody else has that number





Verse 3(w/RIFF A and B)
'cuz we're chillin' and we're chillin' into the club all night,
we're chillin' and we're chillin' into the club all night,

hear the club, hear the beat, in the dog pound, DJ, he can
have his grilled cheese
some jealous punk, snuck up around my back, tried to take
a lovin' over me; Lord I got into a fist fight, and wound
up in jail all night

give it to me one time 
give it to me - two times (1, 2)
give it to me three time (1, 2, 3)
give it to me four time (1, 2, 3, 4)

     E      G   E      G   E      G   E      G

ball and chain

Verse 1

people listen up don't stand to close 
i got something that you all should know, 

all the lies, all the lies they
told to me from a little part of history,
see i was always taught that boy meets girl
fall in love get married and forget the world
nine months later sweet babys on the way kiss

'em on the cheek and lifes o.k., 
E            A       E            A
i don't feel no pain i don't have no time
E             A                   B    C
to listen to conflicting points of view.
E                    G        B(14th fret) 
its a crazy world to live alone
E                  G        B(14th fret) 
a ball and chain i call my own. 

      E    G
nanana nana whoo

Verse 2(Basically same as above)

people stand back don't stand top near i've got something that you all
should hear holy matrimonys not for me rather die alone in misery because
marriage doesn't work in the world today it's an institution and it's in
decay and if i have love i wish to protray i will surely find another way
because i was always taught that boy meets girl... i step into the great
unknown a ball and chain i call my own.

The chords are right but your ball and chain lyrics are out of order.
