                Now, I'm going to spare you the pain of decifering the same chords OVER and Over again, placed on top of the words of the song. So here is the chord progression for the acoustic part of the song
D  A  G  D

D- [xx0232]
A- [x02220]
G- [320033]

There, that's it, simple strumming, just listen and you'll figure it out. Here's the lyrics for those of you like me who enjoy singing no matter how bad your voice is

Well it's been ten years and a thousand tears 
And look at the mess I'm in
A broken nose and a broken heart
An empty bottle of gin 
Well I sit and I pray 
In my broken down Chevrolet
While I'm singin' to myself 
There's got to be another way 

Take away, take away 
Take away this ball and chain 
I'm lonely and I'm tired 
And I can't take any more pain 
Take away, take away 
Never to return again 
Take away, take away 
Take away this ball and chain 

Well I've searched and I've searched 
To find the perfect life 
A brand new car and a brand new suit 
I even got me a little wife
But wherever I have gone 
I was sure to find myself there
You can run all your life 
And not go anywhere 


Well I'll pass the bar on the way 
To my dingy hotel room
I spent all my money 
Been drinking since a half past noon
Well I'll wake there in the morning
Or maybe in the county jail
Times are hard, getting harder 
I'm born to lose and destined to fail
