Ball & Chain (Van Morrison)

I've been on this roller coaster just too many times And always it seems like The blind keep on leading the blind Tried to get them on the 'phone Tried to find my way back home Tned and failed, and tried and failed, again But baby i don't want you 'cos you look so good I don't want you 'cos i know i should I don't want you to come in f rom the rain I want you to be my ball and chain I want you to be my ball and chain Ah just lately i've been roaming from town to town I've been setting them up, setting them up And i've been knocking them down I was born to live, it seems, a fugitive dream Make things always better than they seem And i stop and start, and stop and start And stop and start again Baby i don't want you for your money I don't want you 'cos i love you honey I don't want you to ease this memory pain No, i want you to be my ball and chain Yes, i want you to be my, be my ball and chain When i see you in the garden once again Baby you'll be standing in the summer rain Laugh and cry and say what it's all about You can even jump and shout And you'll smile and say how are you again I don't want you 'cos i'm so blue I don't want you 'cos you know what to do I don't want you because all my love seems in vain I want you to be my ball and chain I want you to be my ball and chain I want you to be my ball and chain I want you to be my ball and chain Oh, be my ball and chain Be my ball and chain, be my ball and chain Oh, be my ball and chain I want you.....ball and chain, etc.
