Chained and Bound  Otis Redding

...CHAINED AND BOUND... by Otis Redding

*from 'The Great Otis Redding
Sings Soul Ballads' (1965)*
(Original Key: Bb)
Verse 1:
[G] Darling now,
[C] You made me change my mind.
[G] Can go no [D]further,
[G] Because you got me [D]chained and bound.
Verse 2:
[G] Taller than the tallest sky,
[C] Sweeter than a grape on a vine.
[G] Can go no [D]further,
[G] Because you got me [D]chained and bound,
Right now, now.
Verse 3:
[G] So glad, I'm so glad, I'm so glad,
Oh, I don't have to [C]worry no more,
[G] Oh [D]my my my, [G]baby, somebody, [D]somebody.
Bridge 1:
[Em] What kind of life,
Is this kind I'm [G]living?
Oh Lord, [Em]what kind of love,
Is she trying to [G]give me?
[Em] I feel like I'm standing up,
And telling the [G]world;
I'm [G]chained [G/F#]to [G/E]your [D]love.
Verse 4:
[G] Darling, oh, don't break,
This little [C]heart of mine.
[G] There's no greater [D]love,
Than this love of [G]yours and mine.[D]
Verse 5:
[G] You walk with your head in the sky,
[C] Darling don't ever pass me by.
[G] I ain't going no [D]further,
No [D]further,
[G] Because you got me [D]chained and bound.
[G] So glad, I'm so glad, I'm so glad,
Lord, I don't have to worry no more.
She got me chained to her love, now,
I don't, I don't want to be taken away.
I'm chained, I'm chained and a little bound,
Now, now, now, I'm chained,
I'm chained to your love.
I don't, I don't know darling,
I wanna to be taken away, now.
Oh, just a little bit of soul,
Just a little bit of soul, now.
(Repeat to Fade)
