Shackles And Chains chords – Stonewall Jackson

 G C 
On a long lonesome journey I am going 

    D7 G 
Oh my sweet little darling don't cry

                                      C 
For in shackles and chains they will take me 

      D7 G 
To a prison to live till I die 

 
                                        C 
And each night through the bars I will gaze at the stars

    D7 G 
My dreams dear for you so in vain

                                    C 
A piece of stone I will use for my pillow 

           D7 G 
While I'm sleeping in shackles and chains

 
                                            C 
Put your arms through these bars once more darling

       D7 G 
Let me kiss those sweet lips I love best

                             C 
In sorrow they were my consolation 

     D7 G 
And in sadness my heaven of rest
