Ball & Chain

I came a' running down the hill
Holding a tankard I dare not spill,
My only respite from my girl
If I was late, oh how she would look to kill.

She would throw pots and pans,
Bruise and dent me, burn my hands
Can't tell nobody, Of how a woman rules my lands.

After a hard day at the mill
Holding a tankard, she dared to spill
Oh now, now my girl
I now stand trial, for a kill.
