Lyrics and Music: John H. Schiessler

CHAIN  GANG

The lowdown is comin' over yonder

And the hard rain come pourin' down

I feel blood and thunder

Hellhounds seem to gain ground

 

They drivin' me up to the pole

Listen to the heavy noise,

If we miss that borderline

There ain't no way out working on the chain gang.

 

Bearin' down shell shock moanin'

I nose the mob behind. Oh yes I do.

Hellhounds keep on strollin',

Let's bunk it's about time

 

They drivin' me up to the pole

Listen to the heavy bang,

If we miss that borderline

There ain't no way out working on the chain gang.

 

The lowdown's still over yonder

And the dry night come fallin' down

I feel blood and thunder

Hellhounds seem to gain ground

 

They drivin' me up to the pole

Listen to the heavy noise,

If we miss that borderline

There ain't no way out  working on the chain gang.

 

They drivin' me up to the pole

Listen to the heavy bang,

If we miss that borderline

There ain't no way out working on the chain gang.

 

Alright

 

Hellhound's on the trail.
