lyrics

BALL AND CHAIN 5:45

By Erick Hovey


The walls are closin in
And you close the door
The ceilings fallin in
On a slippery floor

Caught yourself, Out in the rain
I see you caught yourself, a ball and chain

It’s a hard room
It’s a hard rain
You drop the seed
And so you reap the pain

CHORUS:
Caught yourself, Out in the rain
I see you caught yourself, Out in the rain
Congratulations, You got yourself a ball and chain


Quiet, Desperation
You can’t turn it back (answer)
Can you turn your back (answer)

CHORUS: (Repeat)

Ball and chain (Repeat)

about

Erick Hovey Fort Dodge, Iowa

Erick Hovey's music is peppered with seasonings of blues, roots rock, jazz, funk, old power trio rock, reggae, and newer folk fusion styles. His lyrical content has not only good humored nods towards classic blues and rock clichés’, but spans the afterlife, and existentialism as well. Sometimes it’s spooky, sometimes it’s raw, spiritual, and sensual. Think Mark Knopfler, JJ Cale, and Peter Green. ... more
