E G B(14th fret) its a crazy world to live alone E G B(14th fret) a ball and chain i call my own. E G nanana nana whoo Verse 2(Basically same as above) people stand back don't stand top near i've got something that you all should hear holy matrimonys not for me rather die alone in misery because marriage doesn't work in the world today it's an institution and it's in decay and if i have love i wish to protray i will surely find another way because i was always taught that boy meets girl... i step into the great unknown a ball and chain i call my own.
