Chain Gang (The Work Song) - Nina Simone lyrics
♪ Chain Gang (The Work Song) ♪ official lyrics
Breaking rocks out here on the chain gang
Breaking rocks and serving my time
Breaking rocks out here on the chain gang
Because they done convicted me of crime
Hold it steady right there while I hit it
Well reckon that ought to get it
Been
Working and working
But I still got so terribly far to go

I commited crime Lord I needed
Crime of being hungry and poor
I left the grocery store man bleeding (breathing?)
When they caught me robbing his store
Hold it steady right there while I hit it
Well reckon that ought to get it
Been
Working and working

But I still got so terribly far to go

I heard the judge say five years
On chain-gang you gonna go
I heard the judge say five years labor
I heard my old man scream "Lordy, no!"
Hold it right there while I hit it
Well reckon that ought to get it
Been

Working and working
But I still got so terribly far to go

I'm getting tired and tired and tired and tired and tired
and tired
Working on the chain gang
But they still
They tell me I still
Even though I'm so tired and tired
They tell me I still
Got so terribly far to go
