Shackles And Chains lyrics

On a long lonesome journey I'm going
Throw your arms round my neck and don't cry
Though in shackles and chains they will take me
To a prison to stay till I die

And at night through the bars I will gaze at the stars
And long for your sweet kiss in vain
A piece of stone I will use for my pillow
While I'm sleeping in shackles and chains
[ steel ]
Put your arms through these bars once my darling
Let me kiss so sweet lips I love best
In heartaches you're my consolation
And in sorrow my heaven of rest

And at night through the bars I will gaze at the stars
The plans that we've made were in vain
A piece of stone I will use for my pillow
