                Verse 1:
   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 ( A D with A muted B string )
Chorus:
     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     
Just pondering this time bomb in my mind.

Verse 2:
   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 walked away from a happy man.
   C               D             
I thought I was so cool.
G                   Em           
I just stood there whistling
       C                   D          G       Em        
"There goes the bride" as she walked out the door
       C                 D          G       Em    C  D        
There goes the bride as she walked out the door
    
Bridge: ( Noise )

Verse 3:
    G            Em
I could shake my tiny fist
    C              D
And swear I wasn't wrong,
     G                  Em
But what's the sense in arguing
   C            G
When you're all alone?
   G               Em
Sure as you can't steer a train
   C                D
You can't change your fate
   G              Em
When she told me off that day
   C               G
I knew I'd lost my home.

D6

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

(Repeat 2nd verse)
   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 walked away from a happy man.
   C               D             
I thought I was so cool.
G                   Em           
I just stood there whistling
       C                   D          G       Em        
"There goes the bride" as she walked out the door
       C                 D          G       Em            
There goes the bride as she walked out the door
       C                 D          G       Em   C  D         
There goes the bride as she walked out the door
