Chain Gang  Sam Cooke

CHAIN GANG by SAM COOKE
Written by Sam Cooke and Charles Cooke
[G](ooh![Em] aah!) (x2)
I hear somethin' saying
[G](ooh![Em] aah![C] ooh![D] aah!) (x2)
(Well, don't you [G]know)
That's the sound of the [C]men working on the [G]chain [Em]gang[G]
That's the sound of the [C]men working on the [D]chain [G]gang
All day long they're singing
[G](ooh![Em] aah![C] ooh![D] aah!) (x2)
(Well, don't you know)
That's the sound of the men working on the chain gang
That's the sound of the men working on the chain gang
[G] All day long they [Em]work so hard
[C]'till the sun is going [D]down
[G] Working on the [Em]highway and byways
and [C]wearing, wearing [D]a frown
[G] You hear them moaning their [Em]lives away
[C] Then you hear [D]somebody say
That's the sound of the men working on the chain gang
That's the sound of the men working on the chain gang
Can't you hear them saying
[G]Mm, [Em]I'm going home one of [C]these days
[D]I'm going home see my [G]woman
Whom I [Em]love so dear
But [C]meanwhile I got to [D]work right here
(Well, don't you know)
That's the sound of the men working on the chain gang
That's the sound of the men working on the chain gang
All day long they're singing
[G] my, [Em]my, my, my, [C]my, my, my [D]work is so hard
Give me [G]water, I'm [Em]thirsty
[C] My [D]work is so hard
