LOCK AND CHAIN
(Michael Clifford Nicholls a.k.a. Nicky James)
TERRY DENE (Recorded 1957)

I'm only guessing but
I think your missing the point of what I'm saying
You're all tied up with those locks and chains
And you've nowhere to run

Well, never give in to heartache
Never give in to pain
You don't have to live in misery
Don't have to live in shame
Come on back to my place
Forget about that train
I got a key to your lock and chain
I got a key to your lock and chain
Well, a key to your lock and chain

I won't deny that
This is more than a friendly conversation
Why are you hiding
All your thoughts in that covered basket
Girl, I know what your game is
But the coin I can not see
Yeah, you put yourself through torture
And down right misery, yeah
Come on back to my place
Forget about that train
I got a key to your lock and chain
I got a key to your lock and chain
Well, a key to your lock and chain
Yep...

Why are you hiding
All your thoughts in that covered basket
Girl, I know what your game is
But the coin I can not see
Yeah, you put yourself through torture
And down right misery, yeah
Come on back to my place
Forget about that train
I got a key to your lock and chain
I got a key to your lock and chain
Well, a key to your lock and chain
Lock and chain
Lock and chain
Lock and chain
