Dan Bern - Chain Around My Neck

Song Lyrics

Everything I've ever done has gone belly up or bust
I don't ask me to believe me now, I don't deserve your trust
Let me prove to you that I'm a new man or gone straight
Next time that I see you let's pretend it's our first date

I looked into my and I don't' like what I see
The chain around my neck a thing that I don't want to be
A chain around my neck of lies and bitterness and pride
A chain that doesn't let you see the man I am inside

A chain around my neck
A chain around my neck
Can't move this way or that way
A train that's jumped its track
I t don't let me move forward
It don't let me move back
A chain around my, chain around my neck
A chain around my, chain around my neck

You have left me now, don't want to say that you were wrong
But my life is a place where I am certain you belong
I know that our love can be as solid as a rock
All I need is one more chance, baby to unlock

This chain around my neck
A chain around my neck
Can't move this way or that way
A train that's jumped its track
It don't let me move forward
It don't let me move back
A chain around my, chain around my neck
A chain around my, chain around my neck

Each link of the chain is choking
But each link of chain can be broken
Each link takes my takes my love away from me
But only your love can set me free
From this chain around my neck

A chain around my neck
Can't move this way or that way
A train that's jumped its track
I t don't let me move forward
It don't let me move back
A chain around my, chain around my neck
A chain around my, chain around my neck
A chain around my, chain around my neck
