CHAIN GANG by SAM COOKE

Written by Sam Cooke and Charles Cooke


[Intro]

G    Em
(ooh!  aah!) (x2)
I hear somethin' saying
G    Em    C    D
(ooh!  aah! ooh! aah!) (x2)


[Verse 1]
                 G
(Well, don't you know)
                        C                  G     Em     G
That's the sound of the men working on the chain gang
                        C                  D     G
That's the sound of the men working on the chain gang

All day long they're singing

G    Em   C    D
(ooh! aah! ooh! aah!) (x2)


[Chorus]

(same chords progression)

(Well, don't you know)
That's the sound of the men working on the chain gang
That's the sound of the men working on the chain gang


[Verse 2]

G                  Em
 All day long they work so hard
C                      D
'till the sun is going down
G               Em
 Working on the highway and byways
    C                D
and wearing, wearing a frown
G                            Em
 You hear them moaning their lives away
C              D
 Then you hear somebody say


[Chorus]
(verse chords)

That's the sound of the men working on the chain gang
That's the sound of the men working on the chain gang
Can't you hear them saying


[Verse 3]

G   Em                    C
Mm, I'm going home one of these days
D                     G
I'm going home see my woman
       Em
Whom I love so dear
    C                  D
But meanwhile I got to work right here


[Chorus]
(verse chords)

(Well, don't you know)
That's the sound of the men working on the chain gang
That's the sound of the men working on the chain gang


[Outro]

All day long they're singing
G    Em          C          D
 my, my, my, my, my, my, my work is so hard
        G          Em
Give me water, I'm thirsty
C   D
 My work is so hard
