Ball & Chain


Sitting down by my window,
Whoa, whoa, looking at the rain.
Whoa, down by my window, baby,
And all around me,
I said suddenly I felt the rain.
Somethin' grabbed a hold of me, darling,
Honey, it felt to me, honey like, yeah, a ball and chain.
Oh honey, you know what I mean,
It just hurts me.

Say, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, honey, it can't be
Whoa, it can't be, babe,
Said no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, hey.
Whoa, baby, it just can't be
Every time I want to reach out my hand.
No, no, no, no, no, babe, baby, never, no, no,
Never, never, no, no, no.
Here you gone today, but I wanted to love you, darling,
Oh, till the end of time,
Yeah! All right!

Love's got a hold on me baby
Feels like a ball and chain.
Oh, love just draggin' me down, yeah yeah yeah,
Feels like, honey sometimes it feels honey like a ball, yeah like a ball and a chain
Wonder why when I did the very best I could to love you
You wanted to leave me here, honey in so much pain
Come on, honey, I want you to tell me, please, yeah.

Say oh, oh, oh, oh,
Honey this can't be
No, no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no yeah.
Whoa, whoa, whoa
Honey, this can't be just because I want to want you
Does this mean I have to hide to cry, cry all the time ?
I just wanted to love you, darling,
Every day, oh, whoa, till the, to the very end, to the end of time,
Yeah, no no no no no, hit it!

Love's got a hold on me, baby,
Feels like a ball and chain.
Oh, love's holdin' on to me,
Feels to me, oh like a ball and a chain
Honey somethin' will grab around the knees, grab me in my heart,
Feels to me like a ball and a chain now,
Yeah, alright, yeah!

Say oh, oh oh oh,
Honey this can't be
Tell me please what am I askin' now,
It can't be babe
I know it just can't be, darling, no no.
Whoa whoa whoa, whoa darling don't you feel me reachin' out
Tell me, tell me, darling please
Tell, tell, tell me darling please, I'm gonna need it,
I want you to hear me baby
Tell me why, sometimes darling
I said sometimes I feel I got to know why
Sometimes I feel, honey, honey that I need to know why
I said baby when I ask you
I could use a little help sometime
When I say, I say tell me, come on man,
Tell me, tell me, babe,
Honey I never understood, why when I want to work my hands out,
I want to wear my hands out, I try the very best I can, babe
Why you always want to go, honey and let me down baby.
I said why I always wanna go, honey drag me around.
Seems like anything, it could be the telephone company man,
it could be the man I love, I always got something else going, you know what I mean ?
Over on the other side, say, not quite got it right this very minute.
I'm so sorry babe, I said I'm so very sorry babe,
But I never did promise you nothing, right ? I see what you mean.
Come on, man, now come on, that ain't the name of it,
And that ain't the end of it, you know what I mean.
Sometimes, it feels just about breaking things, you know what I mean.
Just like, just like a grave, just like a grave to call
Just like a cry to call.
Honey I never understood and I said please
Lord, I swear I never understood and I say please
I want you to help me, fill it up baby,
I want you to help me, I said allow me to hear
Please, please, please, please, please, please, please,
Honey make me understand why love just feels so heavy on me, darling,
Feels so bad on my back, babe,
Feels just like a ball,
Feels like a ball, ball, oh daddy feels like a ball,
And a chain.

Summertime


Summertime, time, time,
Child, the living's easy.
Fish are jumping out
And the cotton, Lord,
Cotton's high, Lord so high.

Your daddy's rich
And your ma is so good-looking, baby.
She's a-looking good now,
Hush, baby, baby, baby, baby now,
No, no, no, no, no, no, no,
Don't you cry, don't you cry.

One of these mornings
You're gonna rise, rise up singing,
You're gonna spread your wings, child,
And take, take to the sky,
Lord, the sky.

But until that morning,
Honey, n-n-nothing's going to harm ya,
No, no, no no, no no, no...
Don't you cry — cry.

To Love Somebody



There's a light, certain kinda light,
Never ever, never shone on me, no, no.
Honey, I want, I want my whole life
To be lived with you, babe,
That's what I want oh, was to be
Living and loving you.

There's a way, oh everybody say
You can do anything, every thing yeah.
But what good, what good,
Honey, what good could it ever bring
'Cause I ain't got you with my love
And I can't find you babe, no I can't.

You don't know, you don't know what it's like,
No you don't, honey no you don't know,
You don't know what it's like
To love anybody.
Oh honey, I wanna talk about love
And trying to hold somebody
The way I love you babe,
And I've been loving you babe.

In my brain, oh I can see your face again,
I know my frame of mind, yeah.
But nobody, nobody has to ever be so blind,
Honey, like I did, I know I was blind,
Honey, I tell you that I was, I was very, very blind.
Oh but I'm just a girl,
Can't you just take a look at me and tell,
Tell that I live, honey I live and I breathe for you,
Don't you know I do!

But what good, what good,
Honey, what good could ever do
'Cause I ain't got you, that's all I've ever wanted,
And I ain't got you, babe, oh but I've been looking 'round.
But you don't know, you don't know what it's like,
No you don't, no, no, no, you don't know,
Honey, you don't know what it's like
Oh to love anybody.
Oh honey I wanna talk about
Trying to hold somebody when you're lonely
The way I loved you, baby,
And I just want you to know I tried.

Oh I know that there's a way
'Cause everybody came to me one time and said,
"Honey, you can do anything,
Every little thing," and I think I can.
Oh, but what good, what good,
Honey, what awfully good can it ever, ever bring,
'Cause I can't find you with my love,
And I can't find you babe, oh anywhere.

Oh, but you don't know,
You don't know what it's like,
No you don't and you never ever, ever did.
You don't know, honey,
You don't know what it's like
Oh, to love anybody.
Oh, honey I wanna talk about trying to hold you.

Oh baby, baby, baby, yeah,
But you don't know,
You don't know what it's like,
And you never ever, ever did,
I said I tried to throw my love around you
And I tried to help you darling.
But you never ever, no you never ever,
No you never ever, no you never ever,
I know that you know that
No you never ever, ever, ever,
Oh let me throw my love,
Throw my love all around you, yeah.

Maybe


Maybe
Oh if I could pray and I try, dear,
You might come back home, home to me.

Maybe
Whoa, if I could ever hold your little hand
Oh you might understand.
Maybe, maybe, maybe, maybe, yeah.

Maybe, maybe, maybe, maybe, maybe dear
I guess I might have done something wrong,
Honey I'd be glad to admit it.
Oh, come on home to me!
Honey maybe, maybe, maybe, maybe yeah.

Well I know that it just doesn't ever seem to matter, baby,
Oh honey, when I go out or what I'm trying to do,
Can't you see I'm still left here
And I'm holding on in needing you.

Please, please, please, please,
Oh don't you reconsider babe.
Now come on, I said come back,
Won't you come back to me!

Maybe dear, oh maybe, maybe, maybe,
Let me help you show me how.
Honey, maybe, maybe, maybe, maybe,
Maybe, maybe, maybe, yeah,
Maybe, maybe, maybe, yeah.
Ooh!

Janis- respect! Απ' τις τραγουδίστριες που τα έλιωσα τα βινυλιά της στην εφηβεία!

sot είπε...

ΤΟ ΑΞΙΖΕ !!!
Ευτυχώς βγήκαν τα cd και τα mp3 :)

Ανώνυμος είπε...

Να με συγχωρείτε,αλλά τα βινύλια,κρατάνε μια χαρά.Στα cd πάθαμε αυτό που λένε "άλλα μας δείξανε,άλλα μας μπήξανε".

Η Janis υπέροχη,τι άλλο;

sot είπε...

Ναι. Ειδικά μερικά που τα έχουμε αγοράσει 2-3 φορές :)
Για να λέμε την αλήθεια το βινύλιο ακόμα και λιωμένο και γδαρμένο ακούγεται. Το cd όταν πει όχι μάλλον μας έχει αφήσει χρόνους. Και φυσικά δεν υπάρχει καμμιά σχέση στον ήχο,
κυρίως στις αναλογικές ηχογραφήσεις.
Παρ' όλα όσα έλεγαν το βινύλιο ζει για δει το θάνατο του cd.
Πάντως μας παρέχουν και κάποιες ευκολίες, κυρίως τα mp3.
