                LUCKY BALL & CHAIN by They Might Be Giants

[Each chord or dash represents one beat.  Play a D6 chord like a D chord but
without fretting the B string (next to the bottom).]

        G - Em -     I lost my lucky ball & chain
        C - D  -     And now she's four years gone
        G - Em -     Just five feet tall and sick of me
        C - G  -     And all my rattling on

        G - Em -     She threw away her baby-doll
        C - D  -     I held on to my pride
        G - Em -     But I was young and foolish then
        C - G  -     I feel old and foolish now.

        D6 - - x

C - - - G - - -     Confidentially, she never called me baby-doll
C - - - G - - -     Confidentially, I never had much pride
C - - - G - - -     But now I rock a bar stool and I drink for two
D - C - D - - x     Just pondering this time bomb in my mind.

                   (Repeat first four lines of song)
G - Em -           She walked away from a happy man.
C - D  -           I thought I was so cool.
G - Em -           I just stood there whistling
C - D  -           "There goes the bride" as she walked out the
G - Em -           door.
C - D  -           There goes the bride as she walked out the
G - Em - C - D     door.

                   I could shake my tiny fist
                   And swear I wasn't wrong,
                   But what's the sense in arguing
                   When you're all alone?
                   Sure as you can't steer a train
                   You can't change your fate
                   When she told me off that day
                   I knew I'd lost my home.

                   Confidentially, I never told you of her charms.
                   Confidentially, we never had a home,
                   But this railroad apartment was the perfect place
                   When she'd sit and hold me in her arms.

                   (Repeat 2nd verse)
