Lucky Ball Chain lyrics

I lost my lucky ball & chain
Now shes four years gone
Just five feet tall and sick of me
And all my rattling on

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

Confidentially --
She never called me baby-doll
Confidentially --
I never had much pride
But now I rock a bar stool
And I drink for two
Just pondering this time bomb in my mind

I lost my lucky ball & chain
Now shes four years gone
Just five feet tall and sick of me
And all my rattling on

She walked away from a happy man
I thought I was so cool
I just stood there whistling
There goes the bride as she walked out the door
There goes the bride as she walked out the door

I could shake my tiny fist
And swear I wasnt wrong
But whats the sense in arguing
When youre all alone?
Sure as you cant steer a train
You cant change your fate
And when she told me of that day
I knew Id 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 shed sit and hold me in her arms

I lost my lucky ball & chain
Now shes four years gone
Just five feet tall and sick of me
And all my rattling on

She walked away from a happy man
I thought I was so cool
I just stood there whistling
There goes the bride as she walked out the door
There goes the bride as she walked out the door
There goes the bride as she walked out the door
