Verse 1:
   F            Am      
I lost my lucky ball & chain
     F                   G      
And now she's four years gone
      F                 Am      
Just five feet tall and sick of me
     F              F      
And all my rattling on
      F            Am      
She threw away her baby-doll
    F           G       
I held on to my pride
    F               Am     
But I was young and foolish then
        F              F       
I feel old and foolish now.


G6 ( D G with D muted E string )
Chorus:
     F                              F       
Confidentially, she never called me baby-doll
     F                           F       
Confidentially, I never had much pride
    F                            F       
But now I rock a bar stool and I drink for two
     G              F               G     
Just pondering this time bomb in my mind.

Verse 2:
   F            Am      
I lost my lucky ball & chain
     F                   G      
And now she's four years gone
      F                 Am      
Just five feet tall and sick of me
     F              F      
And all my rattling on                   
     F                 Am            
She walked away from a happy man.
   F               G             
I thought I was so cool.
F                   Am           
I just stood there whistling
       F                   G          F       Am        
"There goes the bride" as she walked out the door
       F                 G          F       Am    F  G        
There goes the bride as she walked out the door
    
Bridge: ( Noise )

Verse 3:
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.

G6

Chorus:
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)
   F            Am      
I lost my lucky ball & chain
     F                   G      
And now she's four years gone
      F                 Am      
Just five feet tall and sick of me
     F              F      
And all my rattling on                   
     F                 Am            
She walked away from a happy man.
   F               G             
I thought I was so cool.
F                   Am           
I just stood there whistling
       F                   G          F       Am        
"There goes the bride" as she walked out the door
       F                 G          F       Am            
There goes the bride as she walked out the door
       F                 G          F       Am   F  G         
There goes the bride as she walked out the door
