Lyrics

CHORUS:

Feel the whip lay on my shoulder

Feel the chain wrapped around my legs

Time is passin' and I'm gettin' older

And I'm wearin' the years that I've had to beg

 

I was a hungry man at the age of twenty

Felt the need for a woman deep in my bones

But I felt the blow from a hunter's weapon

And they drug me unconscious from my home and now I

CHORUS:

 

I came thousands of miles across the ocean

In the belly of a ship, I barely survived

I watched people dyin' without any notion

And I spent all my time just wonderin' why I've got to

CHORUS:

 

I was a hungry girl at the age of twenty

Felt the needs of a woman deep in my bones

But I bowed to pressure from society

I went from my parents to a husband

And now I feel his hands lay on my shoulders

And I feel his fingers wrap around my legs

Time is passin' and I'm gettin' older

And I'm wearin' the years that I've had to beg

 

I've got chains on my feet

I've got chains on my heart

I've got a foot on the Bible

And one in the grave

I've spent all my years

Just tryin' to survive

And now I don't believe I'll ever be saved

I've got to

CHORUS:
